Milly Quezada

Milly Quezada was Born the 21st of May in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic as Milagros Quezada Borbón.  She is without a question the best known female Merengue artist of her homeland.

Better known as “La Reina Del Merengue” (The queen of Merengue) Milly Quezada’s career spands from 1975 and carries on until today.  Since young, Milly Quezada has enjoyed music, having 4 siblings (all who are also musicians) they migrated to New York where she attended highschool and college where she graduated with high honors from New York city College. milly jocelyn y los vecinos

Her start in music was with her siblings, Rafael, Martín and Jocelyn, and together formed what was then known as “Milly Jocelyn y Los Vecinos”, they would perform locally at first in Washington Heights, New York.

During the start of the 80’s, success soon came mainly due To Milly Quezada’s unique style of singing and strong voice.

They had hits like “La Guacherna”, “Volvió Juanita” and many more. In her career, Milly has won many awards including The Casandra Awards in Dominican Republic, Billboard Awards, Premios Lo Nuestro in 1998, Ace awards and many more.

In 1995, after the death of her husband and manager Rafael Vásquez, Milly took a break from the music industry amidst what were to be hard times for her and her family. Knowing she had to overcome the situation, this eventually led to greater strenght within her, and this same strenght gave her enough courage to in 1997 re-launch her career, this time as a solo artist.

In 2011 La Reyna de el Merengue released her new abum celebrating 30 years in the entertainment business.  The album entitled “Aqui estoy Yo” features many high profile collaborations including one with Juan Luis Guerra titled Toma Mi Vida, the video for that here: Toma Mi Vida Video.

In her solo career, Milly has encountered even more success than she had with her group, and is known and beloved by all her people, not only in the Dominican Republic but in all Spanish speaking countries. Milly Quezada’s struggle to make it in a male dominated scene is only surpased by her success.

  3. Felicito a Milly por todos sus exitos durante todos estos años, pero creo que estamos dejandos muchas cosas del pasado fuera de los comentarios. Seria bueno se mencionara cual fue la primera grabacion de Milly o cuales, aunque no tuvieran el exitos perseguido por no ser aun famosa, quien los escribio aunque nunca fueran registrados oficialmente por su compositor, ya que en ese entonces todo era entre Vecinos, nunca se ha mencionado a Vicente el bajista, ni se ha sido totalmente sincero en cuanto a su verdadero comienzo e inicio en mundo artistico, solo se habla y menciona Llego Juanita, la cual no fue su primera grabacion en disco 45….Gracias
