Daddy Yankee Retires from Music Career and Chooses a Spiritual Path

In a surprising turn of events, reggaeton sensation Daddy Yankee has declared his departure from the music scene to dedicate his life to religion. The 46-year-old Puerto Rican superstar, celebrated for global chart-toppers like “Despacito” and “Gasolina,” shared this life-altering decision with fans during the final performance of his La Última Vuelta (Last Lap) world tour.

“Living a successful life is not the same as living a life with purpose,” expressed Daddy Yankee to the crowd, emphasizing his newfound devotion to faith. “For a long time, I tried to fill an emptiness… that nobody could fill,” he added, attributing his salvation to faith. “That’s why tonight I recognized and am unashamed to tell the world that Jesus lives in me, and that I will live for him.”

This marks a dramatic shift for Daddy Yankee, a prominent figure in the reggaeton genre, known for his sexually charged, street-smart style that emerged in Panama and Puerto Rico in the 1990s. The artist, born Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez, has been a key ambassador for reggaeton, achieving international success with hits like “Barrio Fino,” “Con Calma,” and “Rompe.”
