International News: Daddy Yankee retires from Reggaeton; devotes life to Christ

Posted: Tuesday, December 5, 2023. 2:30 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Renowned Reggaeton rapper, singer and songwriter Daddy Yankee announced during his La Meta tour that he is officially retiring from reggaeton to devote his life to Christ.

On Sunday night, during his farewell tour in Puerto Rico, Daddy Yankee made the announcement after performing his global hits including “Gasolina”.

“Gasolina” marked the beginning of the globalization of reggaeton and catapulted him into mainstream success back in 2004.

“My people, this day for me is the most important day of my life. And I want to share it with you because living a life of success is not the same as living a life with purpose,” he said.

The singer told fans that despite traveling the world and winning awards, a part of him felt unfulfilled for a long time.

“I have to confess that those days are over. Someone was able to fill that emptiness,” he added.

He cited the Bible verse in Spanish: “What good will it be for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?”

“That is why tonight, I recognize, and I am not ashamed to tell the whole world that Jesus lives in me and that I will live for him,” the singer said with his hand to the sky.

He announced that he would embark on “a new beginning” as Ramón Ayala, his birth name.

“All the tools that I have in my possession such as music, social networks, platforms, a microphone — everything that Jesus gave me — is now for his kingdom,” he added.

“Thank you very much, Puerto Rico, and I hope that you walk with me in this new beginning.”

The singer gave a special message to all his fans.

“To all the people who followed me, follow Jesus Christ, who is the way, the truth and the life. Just like Jesus, with his mercy, allowed me to travel the world, in your mercy, Father, I hope you allow me to evangelize the world from Puerto Rico. Amen,” he expressed.

Daddy Yankee has sold 30 million records worldwide and is one of the best-selling Latin music artists.
