Yandel Discusses How Reunion Song With Wisin Brought Back 'Our Old Reggaeton Sound'

Following his performance at the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina in Miami (Nov. 4), reggaeton veteran Yandel opened up about his recent collaboration with longtime friend and partner Wisin, their first release together in five years.

"Because it's been five years, we named our song 'Como Antes.' We wanted to bring back our old reggaeton sound," the Puerto Rican artist explained to Billboard. "For me the song was a success. It has more than a 100 million views."

Still high off his performance at the annual Latin music celebration, which he deemed "a beautiful event," Yandel also touched on his successful collaboration with Colombian star, J Balvin.

"We filmed ["Muy Personal"] with 36 Grados in Medellin, Colombia. I was able to enjoy the vibe in Colombia," he raved. "The video is spectacular, it is getting millions of views."

As Yandel continues to rake in those numbers, a solo career phase he's thoroughly "enjoying," watch the rest of his interview up top.
