Daddy Yankee is retiring from music
Puerto Rican rap veteran, Daddy Yankee has announced that he will be retiring after 32 years in the music industry.
“This race, which has been a marathon, finally sees the finish line. Now, I am going to enjoy what all of you have given me,” the singer said in a video statement posted to YouTube.
“People say that I made this genre worldwide, but it was you who gave me the key to open the doors to make it the biggest in the world.”
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”.
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.
Recall in 2017, Daddy Yankee joined forces with Luis Fonsi for the record-breaking single “Despacito,”
