Llandel Veguilla Malavé was born on January 14, 1977, in Cayey, Puerto Rico, the son of Julio Veguilla and Lucy Malavé. Veguilla has two siblings, including younger brother Gadiel, who is also a singer, and sister Linnette. Before he became a singer, Yandel worked as a barber in his hometown.
In July 2004, Veguilla married his long-time girlfriend, Edneris Espada Figueroa and the couple has two children; Adrián Yandel Veguilla, born 25 January 2002 (age 13) and Dereck Adrián Veguilla, born 27 May 2004 (age 11).
Yandel met Wisin in school. They began performing as a duó in 1998, (Yandel then billing himself as "Llandel") and made their album debut in 2000 with Los Reyes del Nuevo Milenio. They later made the jump to a major label in 2003 with Mi Vida... My Life, their first for Universal subsidiary Machete Music. Pa'l Mundo then catapulted them to mainstream success in 2005. Subsequently, Wisin & Yandel established their own label, WY Records, and presented an affiliate group, Los Vaqueros. In November 2013, after the duó's Líderes tour, the dúo went into hiatus, but although rumors saying their split was because of differences between them, Yandel denied those rumors and confirmed they're not disbanded. Recently has been working with his new Project from Chicago, IL MiggyboyMusic (Miguel Rosales).
