Nova & Jory were a reggaeton duo. Nova was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico and Jory was born in Carolina, Puerto Rico.[1] They started their career in 2003 and were signed to Loud Music at the time of their split. Their debut and only album Mucha Calidad, which after a couple setbacks and push dates, was officially released on July 12, 2011. In October 2012 they announced they had split amicably. Both artists are now pursuing independent solo careers.[needs update]

Early years and debut[edit]

Nova born in Ponce, Puerto Rico,[2] and raised in a humble environment by a single mother in Ponce metropolitan area, Santa Isabel and Peñuelas, Puerto Rico.[2] Fernando Sierra, better known as "Jory" was born on July 5, 1986 in Carolina, Puerto Rico,[2] and raised in the Residencial Torres de Sabana. Both performers had always shown great interest in the Latin urban genre of Reggaeton, and both had childhood dreams of being professional singers of this musical style. At a young age, and through different circumstances, they moved to the United States.[citation needed] Jory was 10 when he moved to the U.S., while Nova moved at age 15 and got married at 16 with a girl whose name is unknown. Jory was raised in Camden, New Jersey. Jory is also known to be cousins with Zion from the duo Zion & Lennox.

Career[edit]

They both participated many events, talent shows, and televised competitions separately.[citation needed] In 2003, they met and agreed to do a song together. After meeting with successful results with that first song, they formed a permanent duo and create their first mixtape titled Por Encima. As a duo, they also assisted other prominent artists of the genre, including Ñejo & Dalmata, Wisin & Yandel, Zion, and Jowell & Randy, with their own artistic endeavors.[3]

Since 2007 they have been assisted by BadLandz Entertainment in bringing their talent to the masses, including marketing their talent in Puerto Rico.[citation needed] Due in part to their label, they decide to make the move back to Puerto Rico to solidify what they had already been working on and emerge on the scene as new exponents of the genre. In Puerto Rico they collaborated with Guelo Star on a track titled "Es la Impresion", serving as producers Yai y Toly "Los Nativos". Due mostly to "Es la impresion", the duo become a big hit.[citation needed] They befriended Syko "El Terror" (Syko The terror) and develop what is now their permanent studio and collaborator of their tracks, "Empresario Studio". They work with their new producer, "Onyx", bringing their careers to new levels.[citation needed]

The duo collaborated with Syko and Cosculluela in the development of "Bienvenidos a Mi Mundo", a crude street song expressing the hardships of poverty and violence.[citation needed] The track helped expose them as a solid, exponentially rising duo in the genre and achieved much recognition. The song was followed with a remix (feat. Zion, Franco "el Gorila", Ñejo, Polaco and others). Subsequently, they worked with Yaga & Mackie on "Perfume". The duo continue to be well received.[4]

In 2008 they broke with BandLandz, signing up with Black Jack Music and releasing their second mixtape, "Salimos del Bloque", with support from Alex Corolla, AK 47, and Real Talk Reggaeton.[citation needed]

Off the mixtape, one of the tracks produced by "Live Music" called "Traila" caught much attention and airplay, but it was not until "Bien Loco" that they took the genre by storm, receiving tremendous attention throughout Central and South America, specially in Venezuela, Colombia, Panama, and Chile for which prompted a tour in said countries, and having it be one of the top songs of 2009.[citation needed] Following that success, they released other exiting singles such as "Matador" and followed up remix alongside Ñengo Flow, "No Seas Mala" (feat. Trebol Clan), and earned their participation in the mega remix "Rastrillea 2" (feat. a large amount of the most prominent members of the genre). Most recently they have signed on to Millones Records, and they keep pushing boundaries coupling with great producers as Walde 'The Big Maker', 'Sinfónico', 'Jan Paul', 'Omi Colchea', 'Yampi', 'Dj Nelson', 'Montana The Producer', 'Onyx', 'Ruff' y 'Iván Lee').[citation needed]

In late 2011, they announced that their contract had ended with Millones Records and then publicly stated through their social media that they would be joining Loud Music in early 2012. As they continue to tour around South America to promote their debut album, they keep collaborating on remixes alongside other prominent new generation artists as J. Alvarez and Farruko and also being produced heavily by "Los de la Nazza" Musicologo & Menes in-house producers of Daddy Yankee's El Cartel Records. They were also in the works of creating a follow-up album titled Mucha Calidad Reloaded scheduled for release in 2012.
