Daddy Yankee’s new album

Daddy Yankee, whose actual name is Ramón Ayala, uploaded the video on his official website, where he also announced his forthcoming La Ultima Vuelta tour and provided a link to pre-order the album. The American leg begins on August 10 in Portland, Oregon and concludes on September 20 in New York. The singer will subsequently tour Latin America, making stops in Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and other locations.


In his video, he spoke straight to his audience in Spanish. “This has been a marathon of a career,” Ayala remarked. “At long last, I see the end-goal.” Now I’m going to take pleasure in what you’ve given me with all of you. People claim I made this genre worldwide, but it was you who provided me with the keys to unlock the doors and make it the world’s largest genre. He also discussed his impact on younger generations. “Most of us in the barrios where we grew up aspired to be drug traffickers. Today, when I visit barrios and caserios, I find that the majority of the people desire to be artists, which means a lot to me.”

Due to the fact that my subject's studies are based entirely on my research work and sources, I am able to write informative articles. New writers are worried that the story has been told already, well, it has been, but not by you.
