Juan Luis Morera Luna (born December 19, 1978), best known as his stage name Wisin, is a Puerto Rican rapper, singer, and record producer best known as a member of the reggaeton duo Wisin & Yandel.[1] He released his first solo album El Sobreviviente in 2004, and ten years later, in 2014, his second solo studio album, El Regreso del Sobreviviente was released. Wisin is currently working with Prince Royce on their Power and Love tour.


Wisin met Yandel in school.[2] They began performing as a duó in the late '90s and made their album debut in 2000 with Los Reyes del Nuevo Milenio. They later made the jump to a major label in 2003 with Mi Vida... My Life, their first for Universal subsidiary Machete Music. Pa'l Mundo then catapulted them to mainstream success in 2005. Subsequently, Wisin & Yandel established their own label, WY Records, and presented an affiliate group, Los Vaqueros.[3] In November 2013, after the duó's Líderes tour, the dúo went into hiatus, but although rumors saying their split was because of differences between them, Yandel denied those rumors and confirmed they're not disbanded.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Wisin is married to Yomaira Ortiz Feliciano, the couple married on July 26, 2008 in his natal Cayey, Puerto Rico after four years together. They have two children, Yelena, born (2007-09-27) September 27, 2007 (age 9) and Dylan Luna, born (2009-07-19) July 19, 2009 (age 7) and Victoria, born in August 29, 2016 with Patau syndrome, but died on September, 30, from the disease.[5][6][7]
