SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — The popular Puerto Rican reggaeton duo of Wisin and Yandel was said to be breaking up but the group’s publicist denies the claims.
Accompanied by Yandel, reggaeton singer Don Omar made the announcement late Friday at a concert in the U.S. territory as he praised Yandel’s future as a soloist.
But the group’s publicist poured water on those claims.
In a Sunday phone interview, Miami-based publicist Jennifer Nieman said Wisin & Yandel is a “solid duo” with major concerts booked “months down the line,” a clothing line and several endorsement deals.
“They are not breaking up. The brand is solid and intact,” Nieman said.
Yandel’s real name is Llandel Veguilla Malave, and his singing partner is Juan Luis Morera Luna.
