Ramón Luis Ayala Rodrón (born February 3, 1977), also known as Daddy Yankee, is a Puerto Rican singer, rapper, singer, actor, and record producer.

Ayala was born in R.o Piedras, Puerto Rico, and was raised in the Villa Kennedy Housing Projects neighborhood.

Daddy Yankee coined the word Reggaeton in 1994 to describe Puerto Rico's new music style.

Music critics and fans alike, Ayala aspired to be a professional baseball player and played for the Seattle Mariners of Major League Baseball.

While taking a break from a studio recording session with reggaeton artist DJ Playero, he was struck by a stray round from an AK-47 rifle before being officially signed.

Ayala spent more than a year recovering from the injury; the bullet was never removed from his hip; and he credits the shooting for allowing him to concentrate solely on a music career.

In 2004, Daddy Yankee released his international hit single "Gasolina," which is credited with bringing Reggaeton to millions of people around the world and making the music genre a worldwide phenomenon.

Since being a young boy, he has sold around 20 million albums.

Barrio Fino, Daddy Yankee's album, made history by becoming the top-selling Latin music album of the decade from 2000–2009.

Daddy Yankee, in collaboration with Latin pop singer Luis Fonsi, released the hit song "Despacito" in 2017.

Since "Macarena" in 1996, it became the first Spanish-language song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

The single was a hit in the world.

On April 20, 2017, YouTube's "Despacito" video became the most watched video in YouTube's history.

Daddy Yankee became the first Latin artist to do so on Spotify in June 2017, the first Latin artist to do so. 131 awards have been received since his inception as a teenager in 2004.

He has received 5 Latin Grammy Awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards, 14 Billboard Latin Music Awards, 2 Latin American Music Awards, 8 Lo Nuestro Awards, an MTV Video Music Award, and 6 ASCAP awards.

He was named by CNN as the "Most Influential Hispanic Artist" of 2009 and 2006, and he was included in Time 100.

Personal life

Ayala has kept the bulk of his personal life private, although he avoids discussing it in interviews. He has said he avoids doing so because such details are the only part of his personal life that is not revealed, namely, a "little treasure." In an interview with Mara Celeste Arrarás in Al Rojo Vivo in 2006, he discussed his friendship with his wife Mireddys González and his children. He said that his marriage is solid because he and his wife are "friends above all" and that he has avoided other temptations because "weakness is the reason for many artists' deaths." He met his wife when they were younger, and they married at a young age of 17. Yamilette Ayala González was born as a result of the union. His first daughter was born when he was seventeen years old, which he described as confusing at first, adding that raising a daughter at that age was a difficult one. He has a son, Jeremy, who was born in 1998, and another daughter, Jesaaelys, who was born in 1996.

In 2007, Daddy Yankee became the spokesperson for the environmental group "Yo Limpio a Puerto Rico," founded by Ignacio Barsottelli. With the tag "Tómatelo en Serio, Recycle for Puerto Rico," Yo Limpio, PepsiCo, and Wal-Mart announced a joint effort to encourage recycling in Puerto Rico among the island's general public and schools, including Daddy Yankee, who became the main spokesperson. In the elementary, junior high, and high school categories, this initiative introduced a recycling competition among public and private schools from around the island. The initiative was implemented at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores around the island, where customers were able to deposit recyclable items.

Following Hurricane Maria's devastation in Puerto Rico, Daddy Yankee donated $100,000 to the Food Bank of Puerto Rico. The funds were distributed to approximately 9,000 people on the island.

After winning the MLB HR Derby on July 8, 2019, Pete Alonso received the HR Derby medallion.


Daddy Yankee Career

Musical career

Ayala was intended to become a professional baseball player but he was shot in the leg while taking a break from a studio recording session, and he was often regarded as one of the pioneers in the reggaeton style. The bullet was never removed, and he attributes this experience with his ability to pursue a musical career. He appeared on the 1994 DJ Playero's Mixtape, Playero 34, with the song "So Persigueme, No Te Detengas." No Mercy, his first official studio project as a solo artist, was released in Puerto Rico on April 2, 1995 by White Lion Records and BM Records. Earlier in his career, he attempted to imitate Vico C's rap style, including DJ Playero, DJ Nelson, and Tempo, which all aimed to imitate other artists in the genre, in order to create their own style with the Dembow groove. He eventually deviated from the popular rap model and became one of the first artists to perform reggaeton. Daddy Yankee appeared in several of DJ Playero's underground mixtapes that were unveiled by the Puerto Rican government due to explicit lyrics; these songs would later become one of the first reggaeton songs ever recorded. DJ Playero and Daddy Yankee will be credited with inventing the word "reggaeton" to describe their music on the album Playero 36 in 1994.

In the 1997 song "The Profecy," Daddy Yankee collaborated with Nas, who was a source for Ayala's Ayala, the group Boss had collaborated with the rapper Nas, who was a mentor for Ayala.

Both albums were successful in Puerto Rico, but not so much throughout Latin America. Daddy Yankee released nine music videos in those years, including "Posición" featuring Alberto Stylee, "Tu Cuerpo En La Cama," starring Nicky Jam, and "Muévete Y Perrea."

Daddy Yankee formed "Los Cangris" with Nicky Jam in 2000 and released several hit singles together. In 2004, Yankee and Nicky Jam disintegrated due to personal issues and cultural differences. Daddy Yankee and Nicky Jam reunited in 2012 and appeared in various concerts together.

Daddy Yankee released Los Homerun-es, his first charted single ("Settle"), five new songs, and 12 remixes of DJ Playero's albums songs in 2003. "Seguroski," his first charted single after six of them, was later charted.

Barrio Fino, Daddy Yankee's new album, was produced by Luny Tunes and DJ Nelson, among others, and El Cartel Records and VI Music released it in July 2004. It was the most awaited album in the reggaeton community. Since being a kid, Daddy Yankee has loved salsa music, and this has led him to the inclusion of genres other than reggaeton on the album. "Melao" was the most popular of these cross-genre singles, in which he performed with Andy Montaez. The album was described as his most complete, and with it, he intended to offer a variety of reggaeton and other genres to the English-speaking audience. Barrio Fino was accompanied by an international tour with appearances in a variety of countries, including the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Panama, Peru, Honduras, Honduras, Spain, Colombia, Venezuela, Venezuela, and the United States. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the album has sold over 1.1 million copies in the United States alone, making it the country's seventh best-selling Latin album. In addition, the book had sold over 2 million copies in Latin America and around the world.

Daddy Yankee was also featured in N.O.R.E. at the time. "Oye Mi Canto," a hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and a record for a reggaeton single at the time. "Mayor Que Yo" and "Los 12 Discpulos" were two other popular featured singles.

Daddy Yankee received numerous international awards in 2005, making him one of the most well-known reggaeton performers in the music industry. Lo Nuestro Awards within the "Album of the Year" category, which he received for Barrio Fino, was the first award of the year. In this case, he performed "Gasolina" in a performance that was described as "innovative." Barrio Fino also received the "Reggaeton Album of the Year" award in the Latin Billboard, where he performed a mash-up of three of his songs in a duet with P. Diddy on April 28, 2005.

Artists from various music genres covered "Gasolina," the album's success. "Los Lagos," a Mexican banda band, did a cover with the original beat but changed the song's lyrics, resulting in a controversy. The group's rep had sought the copyright permission to perform the single and translate it to a new music style, but the lyrics were not allowed to change the lyrics; no one was obligated to change the lyrics; legal action followed. Daddy Yankee's lawyer said that having his song broadcast was a "honor," but that it must be done in the right way."
