With the release of Daddy Yankee’s new single “Ven Conmigo,” featuring Prince Royce, the king of reggaeton is officially back, reminding us why we love him.
DY has been hard at work in the studio, and we have an exclusive behind-the-scenes look!
“You’ll see a new Daddy Yankee collaborating with different people,” teases Yankee, who’s busy putting the finishing touches on his next album, Prestige, due this summer. “The new single with Prince Royce—it’s a summer anthem. I can guarantee you that.”
Yankee has lost an impressive 30 pounds and toned up in preparation for his next movie role. “I drink lots of water and do one and a half hours of cardio every day because at the end of this year I’m planning to shoot the new movie and the main character is a boxer,” Yankee tells us.
“Boxing has always been a part of my life since I was a kid, along with baseball,” adds the super-fit reggaetonero. Given the box office success of the semi-autobiographical Talento de Barrio in 2008, we don’t doubt many will head to see Yankee transform himself into a Macho Camacho of sorts in 2012.
But before that, he’s going to treat us to some new party music. Check out the single “Ven Conmigo” below, which officially comes out today and be sure to enter our contest to win two autographed copies of Daddy Yankee's Latina magazine covers!
