José Fernando Cosculluela Suárez (October 15, 1980) singer and composer of rap and reggaetón. His artistic name is Cosculluella. He was born in Humacao, Puerto Rico. His parents come from Cuba and Puerto Rico. But he grew up in a beautiful town of Humacao called Palmas del Mar. In his childhood he practiced tennis and golf recreationally, on several occasions he represented his school, San Antonio Abad, in different competitions. At age 16, he began to walk the musical world, created underground mixtapes with his brother and a group of friends.

While studying in San Juan, he was discovered by Buddha, a well-known producer of rap and reggaeton. This man proposed to participate in the recording of a compilation album of Don Omar in 2006, exactly in Los bandoleros with the song Vamos a darle. That same year, together with the company Buddha’s Family, he managed to record “Te va a ir mal” with the rap artist Getto. Two years later and with an estimable reputation Cosculluela could record his first album: El Príncipe. He reached number three on Billboard Top Latin Albums.

Then he released the singles Na na nau, Prrrum, and Plaka plaka. They also achieved a remarkable position in the Billboard Album of Rap. In 2010, Cosculluela released a new album titled The Prince: Ghost Edition, this album contained some songs already published and 5 new songs. These 5 songs were Cuidau Au Au, Smoke, Prrrum Remix in collaboration with Nardo Ranks, another Prrrum Remix with Wisin and Yandel and the last song called Night and Day with Yandel. El Niño (2011) a studio album. From there they continued Soñando Despierto in collaboration with Wisin y Yandel and the third single was Rompan Fila.

Thanks to his popularity, he has been able to count along with his collaborations with Wisin & Yandel, Demus & Curly, The Mafiaboyz. Of the great concerts that this young reggaeton has given, we can mention the one he made at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico in 2014, the magnitude of the event was such that a new concert day was increased. In this concert, he sang with Nicky Jam, Daddy Yankee, Wisin, Tito El Bambino, Jowell & Randy, Arcángel, Kendo Kaponi, among other invited artists.

One of the best moments of his career was when he signed a contract with Warner Music Latin America. The Warner agreement is the first important affiliation for Cosculluela, Warner supported it in every way. After this, he released his first album with Warner and the third of his musical career: Blanco Perla (2016) which went on sale on October 14. The album has the collaboration of Daddy Yankee, Farruko, Arcángel, Tempo, Kendo Kaponi, Nicky Jam among others. Cosculluela released the first single from the album, titled A donde voy with Daddy Yankee.

We must mention that this Puerto Rican artist started in the rap line, but as a strategy, he decided to enter the world of reggaeton because at that moment he was in a rage. Actually, Cosculluela was not very convinced of this, but his producers gave him the advice and although at first, he did not feel comfortable, the situation changed. He has always expressed great thanks to the duo Wisin & Yandel because they were the first to welcome him on the reggaeton road. The singer has had two serious romantic relationships from which two children have been born.

The first is José Fernando Cosculluela Meaux and his second son, Franco José Cosculluela Moreno, born of the union with Gina Moreno, Cosculluela’s ex-partner, they divorced due to the accusations that she made to the justice and to the media against her, she accused him to physically attack her. But, this legal action was not finalized. Later, Cosculluela remarried at the end of 2015 with her fiancée Jennifer Fugenzi in Humacao, Puerto Rico. Many have questioned Cosculluela’s conflicting behaviors both in their daily lives and in the music scene. He has had several important artistic rivalries throughout his musical career. One of them was with Ñengo Flow, from that moment the popular “tiraeras” were born. In 2009 began a rivalry with Kendo Kaponi which lasted until the end of 2012. He also had problems with the singer Don Omar and Farruko.
