With their latest release, Wisin vs Yandel 'Los Extraterrestres', the duo's first studio album since "Pa'l Mundo" in 2005, they are set for world dominance. Lead by the electric single "Sexy Movimiento", the album features nineteen tracks of pure energy and a couple of surprises as well. In an evolution of sound, this album features special vocal appearances by Don Omar, Fat Joe, Eve and France De Vita.
Evidenced by a few years of non-stop success, with major wins at Latin Billboard Awards, Premios Juventud, and Latin Grammy nominations, the "Duo de la Historia" (History's Duo) ensures many more hits in the future. Three million albums sold, a Top 10 album for forty-eight consecutive weeks, and one of the most downloaded artists; Wisin & Yandel has brought the public such hits as "Rakata", "Pam Pam", "Yo Te Quiero" and "Noche de Sexo" with a fury and energy that can only be described as the New York Times simply raved: "Triumphant, clearly, for these two, but triumphant also for the genre."
Despite living the crazy life traveling, selling out shows all over the world, and selling millions of records, the duo finds time to just "be". They find home in Puerto Rico where they say is where they can feel grounded and spend time with family. They also find the time to give back. They believe it is important to have a social conscience and lend both their time and name to foundations and charities like the Carlos Arroyo Association, and the Home for Children Living with AIDS to name a few.
This is only the beginning for Wisin & Yandel. The "Duo Dinamico" is just that a dynamic force of nature that has captivated the world with their infectious style. And, as all men with a purpose, they will continue to deliver their own brand of reggaeton, determined to keep us not only dancing, but expecting from them the same degree of excellence that they expect from themselves.
