It’s official… Following weeks of speculation, Wisin & Yandel has confirmed that they’ll share the mic with Jennifer Lopez on their upcoming album.
The Puerto Rican reggaeton duo joined voices with 42-year-old American Idol judge to record a song entitled “Follow The Leader,” according to Wisin & Yandel’s agent, Paco Lopez.
In addition, Lopez will join Wisin & Yandel—Juan Luis Morera and Llandel Veguilla Malavé Salazar—in Acapulco next week to film the music video for the song.
The track includes South American rhythms, as well as the duo flipping the script. “Wisin sings in the style of Yandel and Yandel in that of Wisin,” says Lopez, referring to the more powerful tone of the former and the lighter vocal touch of the latter.
Wisin & Yandel’s earlier album – “Los vaqueros, el regreso” – included “underground” rhythms on the songs “Muevete,” “Callate” and “Perreame,” while on “Sigan bailando” they collaborated with rappers Tego Calderon and Franco El Gorila.
Wisin & Yandel have released eight albums since they burst onto the scene in 1998. The duo have collected several accolades, including a Grammy and two Latin Grammys.
