Wisin & Yandel is a Reggaeton duo formed in Puerto Rico in 1998, and is composed by Juan Luis Morera Luna (Wisin, born on December 19th, 1978) and Llandel Veguilla Malavé (Yandel, born on January 14th, 1977).
They met each other in school, and released their debut album, "Los Reyes del Nuevo Milenio", in 2000. The release was followed by "De Nuevos a Viejos" (2001) and "De Otra Manera" (2002). They were then signed by Universal Music, releasing the album "Mi Vida... My Life", in 2003.
Their third album, "Pa'l Mundo", led them to mainstream success, in 2005. The duo then started collaborating with American artists, such as Fat Joe, on their album "Los Extraterrestres", in 2007, and 50 Cent, on "La Revolución" (2009). Their last album, "Líderes", came out in 2012. The group has been on hiatus ever since.
Wisin & Yandel now have their own label, WY Records, through which they created the supergroup Los Vaqueros, with artists such as Tego Calderón, Jowell y Randy, Franco "El Gorila", Tony Dize, Don Omar and Hector el Father, among others. They released their first album, "Los Vaqueros", in 2006. The following album, "Los Vaqueros: El Regreso", came out in 2011.
Some of the duos biggest hits are "Algo Me Gusta De Ti", "Noche De Sexo", "Rakata", "Pam Pam", "Sexy Movimiento", "Besos Mojados", "Nadie Como Tu" and "Hipnotízame".
Together, Wisin & Yandel were the first Reggaeton artists to win a Grammy, in 2009, for best Latin Urban Album, for "Los Extraterrestres", which also won Best Urban Music Album at the Latin Grammys.
Even though the group has been on hiatus, both Wisin and Yandel have been on successful solo careers, releasing their own albums/singles and being featured on many popular songs by other artists.
