VI Music is a Puerto Rican record label specializing in the reggaeton genre founded by reggaeton producers Mario VI, Alex Gargolas and Juan Vidal. The record label came to prominence after securing a joint venture with Universal Latino and Machete Music.[1] Their albums include gold and platinum productions such as "The Last Don" and "King of Kings" by Don Omar, Barrio Fino by Daddy Yankee, "A La Reconquista" and "La Historia: Live" by Tito y Hector, "Los MVP" by Khriz y Angel and "Sin Limite" by Magnate y Valentino among many others. During the height of their popularity, VI Music had some of the most successful reggaeton acts signed to their label. The company has not released an album since 2009 after most of their artists left or had their contracts sold to Universal Latino, most notably Don Omar. Alex Gargolas left the company and went on to discover and manage Farruko during his first international successes. Mario VI currently hosts his own radio show "La Jungla" in Puerto Rico alongside legendary radio personality El Coyote.[2][3][4]
