Wisin Releases New Solo Album ‘Victory’

In the Latin music realm, solo life after being part of a reggaeton duo is a very rare thing.

Yet Wisin and Yandel have each managed to survive, transcend and even come back together after their split as the most successful reggaeton duo in history. And beyond his own career as a solo act, Wisin has also established himself as a sought-after producer and songwriter with an ear for developing hits for others; the successful CNCO album, for example, is largely his work.

On Friday, all that came together in the release of his newest solo effort, Victory(Sony Music). In keeping with the name, the album kicks off with a spoken word intro on keeping the path even against the strongest adversity. It’s an allusion, and homage, to Victoria, Wisin’s baby girl who died in Sept. 2016 at one-month old due to a rare genetic condition.

On Dec. 2, Wisin officially released his set and performed old and new material during a Miller-sponsored concert for fans at The Fillmore Miami Beach, and welcomed his old partner (and still good friend) Yandel onstage for an encore.

The set list included new tracks from Victory, like “Contra la pared,” as well as hits that have made the rounds this year like “Vacaciones” and “Escápate conmigo.” There were also old Wisin and Yandel stalwarts like “Rákata” and “Mayor que yo.”

And in a surprise, Yandel took the stage, not to perform one of the two songs he has on Wisin’s Victory, but on his own “Juntos otra ves” (Together Again), a reference to the two getting back together next year.
