6 years ago, Wheeler entered a recording studio for the first time, where his first song “Ahora Estoy Mejor” was born. From that moment on, the studio became his second home and music, his way of living.
What makes Jay Wheeler so different is the romanticism that imprints on each of his lyrics. He is a faithful admirer of urban genre pioneers such as Daddy Yankee, Wisin and Yandel, and Bad Bunny, but his unique style does not compare with any other current performer.
He toured Puerto Rico performing live shows and concerts, but the most important one to highlight was the one at City of Ponce at the Las Justas concert, where an enlivened audience made Jay burst into tears by singing his songs, and his honest and sincere reaction went viral. That sublime moment changed his life forever.
Renowned producer and pioneer of reggaeton Dj Nelson was one of many thousands to watch Jay's emotional reaction at Las Justas stage. Dj Nelson saw an organic talent and decided to sponsor him with his prestigious record label Flow Music and Dynamic Records.
Wheeler’s first album was Platonico The album consisted of 13 songs produced by Dj Nelson and composed by Jay Wheeler, including a very special song called Otra Noche Mas, featuring urban superstar Farruko, one of his greatest childhood idols.
In 2020, Jay Wheeler released his second studio album "Platonicos", which featured musical collabs with Dalex, Myke Towers, Miky Woodz, Alex Rose, Farruko, and others. This album peaked #13 in the Top 100 of popularity in Spain, and two of his songs “Me enamoré” and “La curiosidad” obtained RIAA certifications as platinum and 3X platinum, respectively.
The song “La curiosidad” feat Myke Towers was a total hit, accumulating more than 760 million streams, obtained triple platinum certification by RIAA, triple-platinum certification in Spain, peaked #21 in Spotify's global ranking, among other achievements.
In his first year of official artistic presence, Jay Wheeler was invited to important award ceremonies such as Billboard Latin Music Awards and Premios Juventud, and he also obtained two nominations for Premios Tu Música Urbano 2020 and his first nomination to Premio Lo Nuestro 2021 as “best new artist”.
Wheeler still celebrates the tremendous success of “La curiosidad” remixes. This ambitious project brought together the “urban music royalty” in two remixes: La Curiosidad (Red Grand Prix Remix) [feat. Becky G, Arcangel, Zion & Lennox, Brray & De La Ghetto] by Jay Wheeler, Myke Towers & DJ Nelson, and La Curiosidad (Blue Grand Prix Remix) [feat.
