He will bid farewell to his fans with one last tour and album, “Legendaddy,” out on March 24.
“I’ll give you all the styles that have defined me on one album. ‘Legendaddy’ — it’s fight, it’s party, it’s war, it’s romance,” the singer explained.
Daddy Yankee’s Legacy
“Gasolina,” one of the singer’s best-known songs, came out in 2004 and is often credited for introducing reggaeton to an international audience.
In his extensive career, Daddy Yankee sold more than 30 million records.
In 2017, Yankee collaborated with fellow Puerto Rican Luis Fonsi in “Despacito,” a record-breaking single that anchored itself at the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 for 16 weeks. It is also YouTube’s second most-streamed video of all time.
His La Última Vuelta World Tour will kick off on Aug. 10 in Portland, Oregon and run through December, finishing with a date in Mexico City.
