“Today, I’m announcing my retirement from music by giving you my best production and my best concert tour,” Daddy Yankee said in a statement, per Variety. “I will say goodbye celebrating these 32 years of experience with this new collector’s item, the album ‘Legendaddy’. I’m going to give you all the styles that have defined me, in one single album.”

Daddy Yankee continued, “This career has been a marathon,” before noting that he “finally sees the end-goal.” The “Gasolina” star added, “Now I’m going to enjoy with all of you in what you’ve given me.”

“People say I made this genre global, but it is you who gave me the keys to open the doors and make this genre the biggest in the world,” Daddy Yankee gushed. He also spoke about his influence on younger generations, “In the barrios, where we grew up, most of us wanted to be drug dealers. Today, I go to barrios and caserios, and the majority want to be artists, and that means a lot to me.”
