They are giving Daddy Yankee his flowers and inducting him into the Hall of Fame. He will be inducted during the Billboard Latin Music Awards on September 23.
Ser admitido al ‘Salon de la Fama’ solamente es dado a la gente que a cambiado o creado un genero usando sonidos diferente, en el mundo de la música. Daddy Yankee a hecho eso y mucho mas. La música de él a viajado a nivel mundial.
He is known as the “King of Reggaeton” and coined the term “Reggaeton” in 1994. He started singing and rapping when he was 13. Some highlights in his career are launching a record label at 21 called ‘El Cartel Records’ and having the most-watched YouTube video ever, at 7.5 Billion views, charting in almost 50 countries.
Daddy Yankee continues to make music and will sing his latest song “Métele al Perreo” before receiving his award.
