Jowell & Randy are a beloved, charting and well-traveled reggaeton duo from Puerto Rico whose danceable mixes are almost as popular as their canny and often hilarious rhymes. Jowell and Randy formed in the early-2000s and since the beginning of the 21st century, they’ve  chart commodity. Their 2010 album, El Momento, landed at number two on the Top Latin Albums chart while 2013’s Sobredoxis placed at number 10. They were the first reggaeton act to perform in Australia and Monaco. Jowell & Randy’s most commercially successful single is 2010s “Loco”, which appeared on five Latin charts. Their most popular music video is the 2013 remix version of “Hey Mister”, which garnered nearly 100 million views. They issued “Dile la Verdad” (featuring Manuel Turizo) in early 2019, followed by their sixth full-length effort, Viva el Perreo, in 2020.

Luis Figueroa is the multi-talented four-time GRAMMY® nominated Puerto Rican singer-songwriter and one of the most promising artists of this decade. He has solidified his status as the leading voice and rising star of Salsa reinvigorating the tropical music genre for a new generation of audiences.

Luis’s latest GRAMMY® nominated album, Voy A Ti, is unique and innovative with a fresh sound that will leave a lasting mark in the history of tropical music. The album evolves the sound of salsa with urban components, modernizing this beloved genre. His first single, “La Luz” became his sixth consecutive top 10 hit on the Billboard Tropical Airplay chart. His song, “Bandido” crowned the chart for two consecutive weeks, the only salsa song in 2023 to top the Billboard charts.

“Bandido” also hit #1 in Puerto Rico for seven consecutive weeks. The album was nominated for Best Salsa Album at the 24th LatinGRAMMY® Awards, Best Tropical Latin Album at the 66th GRAMMY® Awards and received three nominations for Premio Lo Nuestro (2024) including Tropical Album of the Year. Luis was honored by the New York International Salsa Congress with their Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to the genre and for inspiring a new generation of aspiring artists.
