Puerto Rican musician Daddy Yankee has made a surprising announcement, revealing his decision to step away from the music scene and redirect his life towards religious pursuits. The 46-year-old reggaeton maestro, renowned worldwide for hits like DESPACITO and GASOLINA, disclosed this significant shift in focus during the dramatic conclusion of his LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA world tour, leaving both fans and industry insiders in a state of astonishment.
In a poignant moment on stage, Daddy Yankee shared his introspective journey, stating, "Living a successful life is not the same as living a life with purpose." Addressing the crowd, he acknowledged a persistent emptiness that eluded fulfillment until he found solace in faith. With unwavering conviction, he proclaimed, "That's why tonight I recognize and am unashamed to tell the world that Jesus lives in me, and that I will live for Him."
Since his solo debut in 1995, Daddy Yankee has not only secured his position as the best-selling Latin artist of the 2000s but has also collaborated with a diverse array of musical heavyweights, including Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg, Janet Jackson, and the Jonas Brothers.
The artist's decision to step away was hinted at in March with the release of his first studio album in a decade, aptly titled LEGENDADDY, accompanied by the promise of his most extensive tour to date. As the final notes echoed in the packed Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan, Daddy Yankee expressed gratitude to his loyal fans and delivered a profound message: "Follow Jesus Christ, who is the way, the truth, and the life." The grand finale was punctuated by a symbolic gesture as a fleet of drones soared over the stadium, forming the shape of a cross, underscoring the gravity of Daddy Yankee's spiritual journey.
