He changed the game when introducing his latin flair to music and brought to the mainstream, a new genre known as reggaetón. For over 30 years, he has gifted his fans countless hits and created memories for many people. Not to mention, he has served as inspiration for the next generation of artists. He has opened the doors for other popular creators such as Bad Bunny and J Balvin.
Daddy Yankee has already staked his claim that this will be his best tour yet titled La Última Vuelta. The tour is slated to start in August in Portland and ends in September in the “Big Apple”, New York. His impact is everlasting as his hits are still trending on popular app, Tik Tok. He noted this new album, set to be released March 24, will feature Plan B, Zion & Lennox, and Ivy Queen. This isn’t goodbye for Daddy Yankee, it is hello to the rest and relaxation he has more than earned.
