The 'Dangerous' album has producers like Tiny, who to me is very special. Also, Luny Tunes, Nesty La Mente Maestra, Nelly La Arma Secreta, Haze, and El Ingeniero. I wanted to use everyone who makes music in Puerto Rico and beyond to have variety.

At first, because this genre of music was so urban, sometimes we would sing songs that were so aggressive. And my parents didn't like it. They would break my cassettes and say, 'That music is garbage.'
Yandel
I really want my music to go mainstream.
Some people don't understand that I – as an artist and a person – I want to make my own decisions and create the music that I personally like.
Yandel
Roc Nation has an army. I'm happy because this is what I needed. I have the music, but they have the muscle.
Yandel
I had that hunger to work and keep growing. So I started to cut hair. When I started getting better, I got my own barbershop. I had a lot of clients in my hometown, so I wouldn't stop cutting hair. That's why I think I have such discipline in my job because I've always been very responsible.
Yandel
I can make my own decisions, I can do the music I like. If I fail, it's me failing – you know.
Yandel
My kids are very special; they can bring a lot of surprise.
I enjoy being in New York. I have so many fans here that sing all my songs from start to finish.
Yandel
Reggeton has changed very much, musically. It has evolved. The artists have also evolved.
Yandel
I am really excited and thankful for opportunity to work with Cotto Promotions, Tidal and Roc Nation.
Yandel
Wisin is my brother. He always will be my brother. We are very happy as solo artists. We had a great musical trajectory together, which will be there forever. And for the future, we won't discard reuniting and making something new.
Yandel
'Dangerous' is an album that I was very dedicated to. I wanted every song to be a hit.
