New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Billboard is proud to announce today that Grammy Award-winning duo Wisin & Yandel, the most successful urban Latin duo in history, will headline the Sony/ATV Iconic Songwriter Q&A Session at this year's Billboard Latin Music Week at The Venetian in Las Vegas April 22-25, 2019.

Back together after a five-year hiatus, Wisin & Yandel remain the only urban Latin music artists to sell out both Los Angeles' Staples Center and New York's Madison Square Garden, masterfully fusing musical genres and styles with the help of an accompanying 10-piece band, eight dancers, and state-of-the art audiovisuals. Their first single together in nearly six years, "Reggaeton en lo Oscuro," became their eleventh number one single on Billboard's Latin Airplay chart as a duo and cumulatively their thirty-fifth number one song.

"Wisin & Yandel are some of the most iconic artists and songwriters in the Latin music world, with a mind boggling career that spans solo releases, innumerable accolades, and most recently their first single as a duo in 6 years," says Jorge Mejia, President, Latin America & US Latin, Sony/ATV Music Publishing. "We couldn't be happier to count them as part of our Sony/ATV family and, now, as our featured artists in the Sony/ATV Iconic Songwriter panel at the Billboard Latin Music Conference!"

"Wisin and Yandel just topped the Billboard touring recap and broke records with their recent string of sold-out shows in Puerto Rico. Now, they will speak together on how they've crafted their legendary and current hits, which have shaped -and continue to shape-- the history of reggaetón," says Leila Cobo, Billboard's Vice President and Latin Industry Lead.

Now in its 29th year, Latin Music Week features Q&A sessions and panels, including its signature "Star Q&As" as well as panels focusing on streaming, videos, both mainstream and Latin collaborations and more. Latin Music Week 2019 will include the return of the standout Women's Panel, which became a catalyst for change in the Latin industry in 2018, as well as a panel entitled "Machismo and Feminism," which will look at contemporary regional Mexican music. Wisin & Yandel join previously announced trap star Anuel AA as headliners of this year's conference. Additional headliners and panels will be announced in the coming weeks.

Registration to the conference will give attendees access to three days of panels, one-on-one sessions and showcases, plus tickets to the Billboard Latin Music Awards, which will air live on Telemundo on April 25. Special loyalty and early bird rates are available.
