Yandel is back with more contra music…
Seventeen years after releasing his solo debut album Quien Contra Mi, the 43-year-old Puerto Rican reggaeton singer-songwriter has released a sequel that features 22 tracks.
Written and produced between his home and studio in Orlando while in quarantime during the COVID-19 pandemic, Quien Contra Mi 2 features 28 different collaborations, including music with J Balvin, Snoop Dogg and Ruben Blades, Anuel AA, El Alfa, Manuel Turizo, Nicky Jam and Rauw Alejandro.
In the nearly four-minute intro, Yandel shares a motivational speech to the new generation of artists.
“I wanted to tell my story, to pump up the kids who are just starting. And, since people always say I’m so quiet, well, here’s something different,” he says, elaborating on his struggles and accomplishments.
Quien Contra Mí was released in September 2003.
