Daddy Yankee turns 35 today! After countless of international hits, the Puerto Rican star has paved the way for many reggaetoneros throughout the years. We are celebrating El Jefe's blazing career by counting down our top 5 favorite music videos. Which one is your favorite?
1. Daddy Yankee: Rompe
In 2005, El Cangri’s gritty and addictive track “Rompe” hit the streets in full force! The hit single held a steady three-month run at the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Latin Tracks. We love the video’s military style (directed by Jessy Terrero) to go along with Daddy Yankee’s sharp lyrics.
2. Daddy Yankee: Gasolina
You must have been under a rock if you didn't hear Daddy Yankee's "Gasolina" playing non-stop in the summer of 2005! The hit song, produced by Luny Tunes, off of the Puerto Rican reggaetonero's album "Barrio Fino" received countless of nominations for the Latin Grammy, Latin Billboard, and MTV Video Music Awards. Years later, this single continues to be a staple in the reggaeton genre.
3. Daddy Yankee: Pose
Who doesn’t feel like a supermodel when “Pose” is blasting in the background? The hit single, off of Daddy Yankee’s “Talento de Barrio” album, was the party anthem of 2008. Relive the club hit and strike your pose!
4. Daddy Yankee: Impacto
In 2007, Daddy Yankee released "Impacto" and everyone in el barrio was hooked! The track was even nominated for "Song of the Year" at the 2008 Premios Lo Nuestro. Later The Big Boss dropped a remix featuring Fergie from The Black Eyed Peas. We love both versions, but we'll keep it classic for his cumpleaños!
5. Daddy Yankee: Grito Mundial
In 2009, Daddy Yankee dropped "Grito Mundial" as the first single off of his ninth album "Mundial." The victorious and upbeat track played for many 2010 World Cup promotional clips. Dale!
