BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc.) will honor the duo Wisin & Yandel at the 29th Annual BMI Latin Awards. The multiple award-winning reggaeton pioneers will receive the BMI President’s Award in recognition of their outstanding achievements and rich contributions to the Latin music community that span over 20 years and continue to influence the next generation of songwriters. The ceremony will be held on Tuesday, March 15 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA., and will be hosted by BMI President & CEO Mike O’Neill and BMI Vice President, Creative, Latin, Jesus Gonzalez.
“Wisin & Yandel are true innovators of reggaeton and urban Latin music, said Jesus Gonzalez, BMI Vice President, Creative, Latin. “Their music transcends generations and has influenced many artists across all genres, helping to propel Latin music forward. We’re thrilled to finally come together and present this distinct honor to ‘el duo de la historia,’ whose undeniable chemistry and talents have earned them legions of fans around the world.”
Wisin & Yandel began their career in the late ’90s and released their first album Los Reyes del Nuevo Milenio in 2000. That initial impact was followed by a succession of records that established their talents, including De Nuevos a Viejos (2001), Mi Vida…My Life (2003) and De Otra Manera (2004), all of which were certified gold. Taking their career to the next level, the duo went on to attain further success with albums like Pa’l Mundo (2005), Los Extraterrestres (2007) and La Revolución (2009), which all peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums and reached massive popularity in countries around the world. After releasing Los Vaqueros: El Regreso (2011) and Líderes (2012), Wisin & Yandel decided to take a hiatus and pursue solo projects but have since reunited and released their tenth studio album in 2018, Los Campeones del Pueblo: The Big Leagues, followed by La Gerencia in 2019.
For more than two decades, Wisin & Yandel have been on top of the Latin charts and their sounds, styles and irrepressible rhythms captivated fans worldwide. They have received numerous accolades throughout the years, including 54 BMI Latin Awards, collectively, and were named BMI’s Latin Songwriter of the Year in 2006, 2007 and 2011. Additionally, they earned a GRAMMY for Best Latin Urban Album for Los Extraterrestres in 2009, 12 Billboard Latin Music Awards, 2 Latin GRAMMY Awards, 13 Premio Lo Nuestro Awards, 12 Premios Juventud Awards and an MTV Video Music Award, among many others.
In receiving this honor, Wisin & Yandel join previous BMI President’s Award recipients including Carlos Vives, Gloria Trevi, Juanes, Luis Fonsi, Mario Quintero, Pitbull and Sergio George, among others.
During the private ceremony, BMI will also salute the songwriters, publishers and administrators of the past year’s most-performed Latin songs in the United States. The BMI Regional Mexican Song, Songwriter, BMI Contemporary Latin Song, Songwriter and Publisher of the Year will also be named during the ceremony. The BMI President’s Award is presented to a songwriter, composer, producer or executive who has profoundly influenced the entertainment industry.

Taylor Swift’s rep responds to reports the singer has the worst private jet carbon emissions
A spokesperson for Taylor Swift has responded to a report that named the singer as the celebrity with the worst private jet CO2 emissions.
Yesterday, a report released by Yard claimed the American singer was the biggest CO2 polluter of the year so far, having flown in her private jet 170 times since January and totalling 8,294.54 tonnes of CO2.
However, Swift’s spokesperson told Buzzfeed News the statistics are inaccurate.
For context, the report claims the average person produces just seven tonnes of carbon emissions per year.
Swift’s representative said only some of the 170 flights can be attributed to the singer: “Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”
Regardless, it is clear Swift’s jet is racking up significant amounts of carbon emissions due to its inefficient use.
According to the Yard report, her average flight time is just 80 minutes, and her jet’s shortest recorded flight flew between Missouri and Nashville for just 36 minutes.
Other significant celebrity polluters include boxer and domestic violence perpetrator Floyd Mayweather, whose shortest flight was just 10 minutes long but emitted one ton of carbon; Kim Kardashian, who has emitted 609 times more carbon than the average person; and director Steven Spielberg, who took an 18-minute flight between Rotterdam and Amsterdam – a route which, when taken by train, takes only an hour.
The subject of celebrity carbon emissions has blown up ever since Kylie Jenner shared an out-of-touch photo of her and partner Travis Scott posing in front of their private jets with the caption, “you wanna take mine or yours?”
In the midst of the backlash, many began diving deeper into Jenner’s private jet use by examining the Celebrity Jets Twitter account, which records celebrity private jet trips.
Many were horrified she was regularly taking flights as short as 12 minutes and reprimanded her for “her absolute disregard for the planet”.
Many found it hypocritical that ordinary people were being asked by big companies to reduce their car trips and use paper straws when celebrities are constantly leaving huge carbon footprints with frivolous trips in their private jets.
Despite the wave of criticism, celebrities have continued to take private flights between short distances.

How to Make Sense of a Very Unpredictable Fall Movie Season
All of a sudden, the fall movie season looks very busy. This week brought two big festival announcements loaded with major films to come: First came Venice, with a lineup that includes everything from Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale” to “Bardo”; it was followed by TIFF, where Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” will premiere alongside Sam Mendes’ “Empire of Light” and Sarah Polley’s “Women Talking,” among many others. Meanwhile, Telluride continues to shroud its selections in secret, but the latest lineups help us get a sense of what to expect there as well.
In this week’s episode of Screen Talk, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson dig through both lineups to get a sense for which films could impact the coming awards season and why it’s almost certain to be an unpredictable ride. They also address the return of competitiveness between festivals that seemed to subside earlier in the pandemic, and touch on the recent changes to the Oscar submission rules in France.
Watch the full episode above or listen it below.
Screen Talk is produced by Azwan Badruzaman and available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify, and hosted by Megaphone. Browse previous installments here, subscribe here, and be sure to let us know if you’d like to hear the hosts address specific issues in upcoming editions of Screen Talk.
