Today, Puerto Rican hitmaker Jhay Cortez releases his long-awaited sophomore album Timelezz via Universal Music Latino. The new album 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.” To celebrate the album’s release, Jhay is playing a sold-out show at United Palace in New York City tonight, which will be followed by additional dates in Las Vegas, and a record-breaking run of three consecutive sold-out shows at the iconic Coliseo de Puerto Rico.

Timelezz announces Jhay’s arrival as one of the foremost superstars in Latin music following his years of work behind the scenes shaping the landscape of reggaeton through his production. The album finds Jhay expressing himself through a wider range of sounds that reflect his tastes, testing the limits of reggaeton and Latin trap by finding the connective tissue between genres with the help of surprising collaborators like Skrillex & Buscabulla and channeling those influences into a signature sound all his own.

The new album punctuates what’s been a wildly successful summer and emergence for Jhay as the leader of the new Latin urban generation and a certified hitmaker, leading the charts worldwide with the likes of “En Mi Cuarto” with Skrillex, “911” with Sech and “Fiel” with Los Legendarios and Wisin all charting simultaneously across 96 countries. Jhay has also won twice at this year’s Premios Juventud awards for his collaboration with Bad Bunny “DÁKITI,” which has spent 42 weeks on the Billboard Global 200 chart since its release, peaking at #1. Along with these accolades, Jhay currently has over 7.4 billion combined streams across various streaming platforms and is featured on multiple hot new Latin playlists on Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music.
