10 Celebs Who Have Recorded Smash Hits with Daddy Yankee
One of the featured artists for his album Barrio Fino En Directo was Snoop Lion—formerly Snoop Dogg— who Forbes magazine named one of the “Top Earning Hip-Hop Acts of the Decade.”
How these two stars from very distinct music genres came together remains a mystery, but they did— and recorded "Mamasita,” a song that even got Roselyn Sanchez to dance with them on stage.
The reggaetón singer and Diddy took the stage the Billboard Latin Music Awards in 2015 to perform "Gasolina" together, leaving many fans (of both artists) eager for another collaboration.
What happens when reggaetón meets cumbia? Songs you can’t pass dancing along to! That’s exactly what was released when Yankee recorded "Nota de Amor" with Carlos Vives and Wisin.
Fans of these two reaggetoneros had the opportunity to watch the two perform side by side on stage for The Kingdom Tour, which took place last year. They have several songs together but one of the most famous remains "Cara a Cara.”
Before recording the hit single "El Perdón" with Enrique Iglesias, Nicky Jam had already collaborated with Daddy Yankee on several songs. In fact, together they had formed the group Los Cangris, where Yankee was nicknamed the "father of the reggaetón.”
Chino & Nacho
With this Venezuelan duo, Yankee recorded the hit song "Andas En Mi Cabeza,” which soared to the top of Billboard charts.
Wisin & Yandel
This reggaetón duo—which was considered one of the most successful in the genre— recorded with Daddy Yankee several times. One of the first collaborations was "Limbo" in 2013.
Another music artist DY has recorded repeatedly with is Farruko, whose real name is Carlos Efrén Reyes Rosado. Among their most successful collaborations is "Suena la alarma," from 2014.
Luis Fonsi and song writer Erika Ender invited Yankee to put that special "touch" of urban music to "Despacito,” which not only made it catchier but also got them to make history as the most watched video on YouTube and remain No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 16 weeks.
