It has only one single, «Baby Boo», released in February 2015 and performed by Cosculluela. His music video was released in April 2015 in both Wise and Cosculluela official YouTube channels, with approximately 9 million views mixing both videos. A remix featuring Wisin, Daddy Yankee and Arcángel was released on July 18, 2015.
"During my entire career as songwriter I lived the bless of watching how the public dedicate my songs through the years. Thankful of all that I decided to make this product called 14F in which the public will have fourteen tracks to dedicate. Being one of the most important proyects in my career, I decided to recruit the bigger artists in the urban genre, starting with DJ Luian, the most famous reggaeton DJ as the captain of this big boat. I'm glad to have him into my plans, who became a brother and a good friend. The way to make productions will take another turn and we promise to direct it for a long time."
