Daddy Yankee Quits The Music Industry

In recent news, Daddy Yankee has announced that he has quit the music industry to dedicate his life to religion, specifically to Jesus.

According to the Gasolina rapper, this will be his last year of performing and he will then proceed to hang up his microphone.

The star, who is often referred to as the King of Reggaeton, has had considerable success over three decades with eight albums released.

He recently put out his LP, titled Legendaddy, and wrapped up his trek La Meta (The Goal) in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

After singing the last song, the musician announced to his fans that he was going to be stepping back from the spotlight for good.

He went on to add that he is not ashamed to tell the world that Jesus lives in him, and from now on, he is going to live for the man, too. 

In the words of the singer, he has tried filling a gaping hole in his heart for the last couple of years that has been bothering him.

He revealed that he had tried to find purpose and meaning in his life. The star disclosed that sometimes his life would make him happy, but other times, he felt incomplete.

Thus, Daddy Yankee read the Bible, and it spoke to him. He recalled that the holy book has a passage that questions what a man will gain from this world after forfeiting his soul. 

The passage had a profound impact on the singer, who decided to devote his life to religion in the years to come.

The 46-year-old also gave a speech on YouTube in the previous year, saying that his marathon in the music industry will soon be coming to an end.

In the statement, he thanked fans for the love and support they have shown him, which has allowed him to enjoy all the success in the world. 

From now on, the Puerto Rican music icon revealed that he will be going to be going by his real name, Ramon Luis Ayala Rodriguez. 

Moreover, he shared how people often tell him that he created a genre across the globe. But he tells them that his fans allowed him to open doors he could not have imagined and be where he is today.

The farewell record released by Daddy Yankee in March was a combination of a wide range of singing styles that he believes have defined his career throughout the three decades.

It is no secret that the music star has sold over 30 million records and is well-known for his hit song from 2004, titled Gasolina.

It was the first reggaeton track that was nominated for the Latin Grammy Award as part of the Record Of The Year. 

The 46-year-old is going to be leaving on a high note, especially since he scored a global hit with Luis Fonsi back in 2017 when the pair put out Despacito. 

The same song was later remixed and featured Justin Bieber, a pop megastar. Consequently, the track went on to top the charts in no less than 10 countries, propelling Daddy Yankee further toward success.
