Jhay Cortez Announces Wisin & Yandel Collab Slated For November


The best new artist nominee with his first Latin AMAs nomination tells Billboard how this new collaboration came to be.

Jhay Cortez said he was nervous during his red carpet stroll during the Latin AMAs, but celebrating the moment is not lost on him, he said, as he teased a major upcoming secret single.

"I'm working on a remix coming out on Nov. 1 with two big, big artists I really dreamed of participating with, finally here, I'm not going to say the name," said Cortez, as Billboard’s Leila Cobo asked for more detail. "It's a surprise, but… it's with Wisin & Yandel, 'Imaginaste' remix."

How did the collab happen? 

"I had worked with Yandel for a longtime…writing and producing," Cortez said. "I sent it to him and Wisin and they loved it."
