Daddy Yankee, real name Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez, is a Puerto Rican singer, songwriter, rapper, actor, and record producer. But not only that: He is the artist who coined the word Reggaeton to describe a new musical genre. Although he first aspired to be a professional baseball player, a severe injury made him focus on a musical career. In 2004, Daddy Yankee introduced Reggaeton to the world when he released his internationally acclaimed single Gasolina. His album Barrio Fino became the top-selling Latin music album of a whole decade. Since then, Daddy Yankee has sold around 20 million albums and won numerous awards. Last year, he collaborated with Latin pop singer Luis Fonsi on the single Despacito, which grew into a worldwide hit and smashed sales records everywhere.
