Daddy Yankee is retiring from music! – HOLA! USA

The moment reggaetón lovers feared has come! Latino living legend Daddy Yankee has announced his plans to retire from music. The 45-year-old rapper took to social media to share his decision. “This career has been a marathon,” Yankee says in a video. “I finally see the end goal. Now I’m going to enjoy with all of you what you’ve given me.”
Daddy Yankee informed that his retirement party would include one more album and a tour. The Latin music sensation, known for his smash hits “Gasolina,” “Con Calma,” “Despacito,” and many more, will release Legendaddy —set to be released on March 24 at 8 p.m. ET — and will kick off his La Ultima Vuelta tour on August 10 in Portland, Oregon.
“Today, I’m announcing my retirement from music by giving you my best production and my best concert tour,” Daddy Yankee said. “I will say goodbye celebrating these 32 years of experience with this new collector’s item, the album Legendaddy. I will give you all the styles that have defined me in one single album.”
Born Ramón Ayala in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Daddy Yankee began his career in the ’90s rapidly gaining popularity and later coining the word reggaeton to describe the new music genre emerging from the island and mixing English-language hip-hop, Latin Caribbean music, Jamaican reggae, and Spanish-language rapping and singing.
After releasing “Gasolina” in 2004, Yankee has sold around 30 million records, becoming one of the best-selling Latin music artists of all time. His album Barrio Fino also made history after becoming the top-selling Latin Music Album of the Decade (2000–2009).
