Daddy Yankee, whose career took off with the smash single ‘Gasolina’ in 2004, will wrap off his musical career with ‘Legendaddy,’ his first new studio album in ten years, as well as a world tour. His music ushered in a new genre that revolutionized the sound and business of Latin music and became a worldwide success.
First-ever reggaeton album to score at No. 1
The album ‘Legendaddy,’ by Daddy Yankee, will be released on May 24 at 8 p.m. ET. His La Ultima Vuelta World Tour, which will last five months, will begin on August 10 in Portland, Oregon and end in December. On March 25, pre-sale tickets will go on sale, followed by a full public sale on March 30. Starting with 2004’s ‘Barrio Fino,’ the first-ever reggaeton album to score at No. 1, Daddy Yankee has had six No. 1s on the Top Latin Albums list. He has 76 entries on Latin Airplay and 86 on Hot Latin Songs as of March 2022, including the record-breaking ‘Despacito’ with Luis Fonsi. (ANI).
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.”
