DADDY YANKEE – LEGENDADDY

Daddy Yankee’s critically acclaimed chart-topping magnum opus and final album, LEGENDADDY, is officially THE BIGGEST LATIN ALBUM OF 2022.

It just went platinum (Latin), and the RIAA has recognized it with the “Top Latin Album Released in 2022 At Mid-Year” Award. Thus far, it has impressively racked up over 1 billion streams and counting.

The impact of LEGENDADDY only continues to grow. The recent music video for “X Última Vez” has amassed over 69 million YouTube views and counting. Rolling Stone fittingly declared, LEGENDADDY is Daddy Yankee’s final victory lap, marking the end of a lengthy career for the undisputed king of reggaeton.” It’s just the beginning though of a massive summer for Daddy Yankee.
Speaking to the excitement around the last chapter of his genre-defining career, his farewell tour “LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA” (The Last Round) has already sold out in advance of its launch this summer.

Upon release, LEGENDADDY landed as the #1 Latin Album in the World. It bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums Chart, arriving as his fifth consecutive #1 debut on the respective chart. Additionally, it catapulted into the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 at #8, marking his highest position on the chart to date and first Top 10 in 15 years since 2007’s El Cartel: The Big Boss. Additionally, it soared to #1 on the Spotify Weekly Top Albums Chart.

LEGENDADDY incited widespread critical applause. Variety proclaimed, “Spanning over three decades of music, the 19-track collection captures the essence of reggaeton, salsa, dancehall, rap, trap, bachata, EDM, and Caribbean influencers, and The New York Times noted, “The most dynamic moments come when Yankee reaches for the magic of the past – whether indulging in boastful hubris or summoning listeners into dance floor reverie.Rolling Stone awarded the record “4-out-of-5 stars” and raved, He’s going out in a blaze of glory.

Right out of the gate, LEGENDADDY took over Spotify worldwide, ascending to #1 on the Global Album Chart, achieving the biggest streaming day of his career on Spotify with a staggering 35.7 million streams—almost double his prior career-best. Additionally, five of the album’s music videos vaulted into the Top 10 on YouTube. He has bested his own personal records with the album – and it has only just begun to catch fire too!

However, his goodbye is hardly an occasion for tears. Instead, LEGENDADDY might just be the biggest part of the century as he invites a variety of A-list friends to celebrate over three decades of music on this 19-track opus. To herald the record’s arrival, he accompanied the release with nine exhilarating and high-energy music videos for “AGUA,” “LA OLA,” “ZONA DEL PERREO,” “HOT,” “BOMBÓN,” “EL ABUSADOR DEL ABUSADOR,” “IMPARES,” and for his single “REMIX. The single’s head-nodding beat and reggaeton production underscore hard-hitting verses and a rafter-reaching refrain. It pops off as a banger on par with his most applauded output. The accompanying visual proves equally scorching, stylish, and sexy.

From the epic Michael Buffer-led opener “LEGENDADDY” through the emotional finale “BLOKE,LEGENDADDY traverses a myriad of styles and sounds made famous by Daddy Yankee throughout his iconic run thus far. Other highlights on the album include “CAMPEÓN,” which tackles his career and what it took for him to be a champion in the industry as well as his staple signature tropical fusion sound that he melds together so well with the Luny (Luny Tunes)-produced track “RUMBATÓN.”

Not to mention, he attracts his most superb guest list yet. Rauw Alejandro and Nile Rodgers rolls through for “AGUA, while he and Bad Bunny turn up on “X ÚLTIMA VEZ. There’s also the unshakable and unforgettable “ZONA DE PERREO” with Natti Natasha and Becky G and “HOT” with Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull. Lil Jon and El Alfa team up for the international banger “BOMBÓN” and on “PASATIEMPO,” he links up with Myke Towers for an explosive anthem, while “PARA SIEMPRE” sees him turn up with Sech. He also collaborated with some of the industry’s hottest producers including Play-N-Skillz, Luny (Luny Tunes), Tainy, OMB, JBD, Dímelo Flow, Slow Mike, Nekxum, BK, Jhon El Diver, Wiso, Alex Killer, G.O.K.B., Maki Váez, Scott Summers, Chris Jedi, Gaby Music, Muzik Junkies, DJ Morphius and Blu Rey.

LEGENDADDY stands out as his first album in ten years and his boldest, brightest, and biggest musical statement ever.

For one last time, he will canvas the world on his sold out tour “LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA” (The Last Round). Promoted by Cardenas Marketing Network and Raphy Pina, MR Sold Out, the five-month trek includes some of the rapper-songwriters’ biggest headline shows in North America and Latin America to date.

That album is LEGENDADDY, and it is here forever.

About Daddy Yankee
As a culture creator, game changer, agent of change, and groundbreaker, Daddy Yankee has consistently inspired, impacted, and influenced generations of creators. An indisputable icon, he remains one of the most influential artists of all time, bringing reggaeton worldwide for the first time. Latin music and culture would not look, sound, or feel the same without him. It’s hard to even imagine the genre itself without “Gasolina,” “Despacito” [with Luis Fonsi], or “Con Calma” [with Snow], and more.

Since 1995, he has consistently conquered charts, toppled records, and made history on his own terms. The magnitude of his accolades proves nearly impossible to match or exceed. Living up to the title of “King of Reggaeton, he has moved north of 30 million records as one of the best-selling Latin music artists of all-time.” Out of hundreds of awards, he has scored five Latin GRAMMY® Awards, eight Billboard Music Awards, 26 Billboard Latin Music Awards, four Latin American Music Awards (including the Icon Award), 17 Lo Nuestro Awards, an MTV VMA, and 10 ASCAP Awards in addition to earning a spot on the Puerto Rican Walk of Fame and the “Presencia Latina at Harvard University. He also stands out as the only Latin Artist with four Spanish-language entries on the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. He received Songwriter of the Year three times at the 2021 ASCAP Latin Music Awards and distinguished himself as the first urban Latino artist to enter the Billboard Hall of Fame.

Most importantly, he runs and leads his charity “Daddy’s House,” which Billboard commended with the Spirit of Hope Award.

After changing the face of Latin music forever, he leaves on the highest note possible in 2022 with his twelfth full-length offering and final album, LEGENDADDY, brought to life with his farewell tour, LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA (The Last Round). The album combines the essence of Reggaeton with salsa, dancehall, rap, trap bachata, EDM, and Caribbean music like never before.

“He’s going out in a blaze of glory…” – Rolling Stone
“…he hasn’t sounded this electric, this deliciously abrasive in years.” – The New York Times
Legendaddy is an impressive amalgamation of reggaetón’s legacy and present with Daddy Yankee at the helm.” – SPIN
