Biography

 

Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez, also known as Daddy Yankee or simply "DY", was born on February 3, 1977 in Río Piedras, Puerto Rico. He is known as the King of Reggaeton and has been active for more than 20 years.


Still a boy, Yankee aspired to be a professional baseball player, but he was shot in the leg while resting from a studio recording session with DJ Playero. He spent about a year and a half recovering from the wound, and the bullet was never removed.


In 1997, he collaborated on the song "The Profecy" with the American rapper Nas, who was an inspiration for him as a child.


In 2004, Yankee had its first worldwide hit, "Gasolina," which introduced Reggaeton to audiences around the world. The album that contains the song, "Barrio Fino", won the Latin Grammy for Best Urban Music Album and became the best-selling Latin album of the 2000s. The album was very popular in the United States, Latin America, Europe and even Japan.


In 2006, the magazine "Time" named Yankee as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, citing the 2 million copies sold, its 20 million dollar contract with the Interscope label and an agreement with Pepsi. Around that same time, he began a rivalry with artist Don Omar, who refers to himself as "King of Kings."


In 2007, Yankee released the album "The Poster: The Big Boss", which had collaborations with will.i.am, Fergie, Nicole Scherzinger, Akon, and many others.
He launched the worldwide hit "Despacito", with Luis Fonsi. The version with Justin Bieber quickly became the number one Billboard Hot 100. Their next album, "The Hard Drive", came out in 2017, and including the hits "Follow Me and I Follow You" and "Shaky Shaky".


In 2018, he started 'La Gira Dura'. Similarly, he released with Janet Jackson a single titled "Made For Now" which in less than a month reached 40 million views on YouTube.
