Last night at the 2021 Latin Billboard Awards, Puerto Rican hitmaker Jhay Cortez took home three major awards for his collaboration with Bad Bunny, “Dákiti,” including Hot Latin Song of the Year, Hot Latin Song Collaboration of the Year and Streaming Song of the Year. Jhay closed out the night with a special performance of “En Mi Cuarto,” fittingly capping off a momentous evening for the artist as part of this new chapter of his career. In conjunction with the wins, Jhay is sharing the new Stillz-directed music video for “Tokyo,” a song that exemplifies his unique version of reggaeton, which The New York Times described as “stretching the genre’s boundaries beyond the realm of stale pop.”
Jhay’s sophomore album Timelezz was released to widespread acclaim and extraordinary support. Peaking at #2 on the Billboard Latin Charts upon its release, Timelezz has spent the last two weeks on the Billboard charts. Also, Timelezz peaked at #9 on the iTunes US Top Albums All Genres chart and hit #1 on the Latin chart with three songs from the project also landing at the top three spots on iTunes’ Top 25 San Juan. The project sees Jhay building on the foundation he set with his debut album Famouz in 2019 and bringing new collaborators into the fold like Anuel AA on the standout track “Ley Seca”, alongside the likes of Buscabulla, Arcangel, Kendo Kaponi, Skrillex, & Myke Towers. Timelezz features previously released chart-topping singles like the now RIAA-certified Double Platinum “Christian Dior,” “Los Bo” with Myke Towerz, “En Mi Cuarto” with Skrillex, and “Kobe En LA,” which are all certified Gold, along with the recently shared track “Nos Matamos” and his 2020 single “Kobe En LA 2.0.”
Jhay celebrated the album’s release with a sold-out show in New York City at United Palace on album release day, which proved to be one of his most electric shows to date, shortly followed by performances at both weekends of NEON Fest in Las Vegas. In October, Jhay is scheduled to play a record-breaking run of three consecutive sold-out shows at the iconic Coliseo de Puerto Rico, a storied and important venue in Puerto Rican music.
