Puerto Rican reggaeton duo Jowell & Randy spent years establishing themselves individually before joining together and rising to fame within a few years' time. Jowell (born Joel A. Muñoz Martinez in Springfield, MA, in 1982) and Randy (born Randy A. Ortiz Acevedo in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in 1983) each became involved with the burgeoning Reggaeton scene during the late '90s.
It was only once they joined forces as a duo with Zion & Lennox -- with Jowell supplying the raps and Randy the melodies, that they truly broke into the recording industry. They were constantly featured on Boy Wonder's series of popular Chosen Few compilations: "Chosen Few: El Documental" ("No Queiro Guillaera", 2004), "El Draft 2005: La Nueva Generación del Reggaeton" ("Siguelo Bailando Solita", 2005), and "Chosen Few: El Documental, Vol. 2" ("No Voy a Parar", 2006).
The duo's profile was increased significantly by Randy's guest features, especially on De La Ghetto's "Sensacion Del Bloque" (2006) and Tito El Bambino's "Siente el Boom" (2007), both of which were hits. In 2007, Jowell & Randy debuted as part of the group Casa de Leones, racking up a big hit with "No Te Veo". The song reached the #3 position of Billboard Latino, where it remained on the list for over 35 weeks. In 2007, the duo teamed up with fellow music artists Guelo Star and J-King & Maximan to form the group "Casa de Leones."
In December 2007, the newly-formed group released the album "Los Mas Sueltos de Reggaeton", and toured North America, Latin America and Europe.
In 2009, Jowell & Randy signed a contract with WY Records, led by reggaeton stars Wisin & Yandel. In 2010, the duo released the album "El Momento". In 2016, they came back and released the album "La Alcadia Del Perreo", which featured collaborations with tego Calderón, Alexis & Fido, De La Ghetto, Luigi 21 Plus and Ñengo Flow.
