Daddy Yankee Nominated for Favorite Urban Artist in Premios Juventud

2005 marked a very special year for Daddy Yankee and his reggaeton music. On February of this year he won a Premio Lo Nuestro for his production "Barrio Fino" which won the Album of the Year in the urban category. His interpretation of his musical success Gasolina was praised by millions of people that night. A few months later, on April 28th to be exact, he also won a Billboard Latin Music Award for the same album, Barrio Fino, for Reggaeton Album of the Year. Daddy Yankee captivated his fans and audience that night as he sang a medley of his songs which included "Lo Que Paso, Paso" (What happened, happened) and "Gasolina" (Gasoline) accompanied by no other than P. Diddy.

The theme "Gasoline" was nominated for the MTV Music Awards and won a Latin Grammy later that same year as well as receiving the most nominations for Premios Juventud. Didn't I tell you that 2005 was a very special year for Daddy Yankee? And last but not least, he was nominated by the young Latino community as "Godfather of Youth" of the Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City, where more than 2 million people participated.

His album Barrio Fino has crossed cultural and international borders, and has occupied prominent positions in the album charts around the world. This production was also supported with tours throughout Latin America, the U.S. and Europe, which have won thousands of fans in each region visited and interviews in major media.

In 2007 his album "El Cartel: The Big Boss came out and included great talent in music such as, The Black Eyed Peas, Akon, Scott Torch, Luny Tunes and Gocho. In 2008 we had the opportunity to discover yet another one of Daddy Yankee's talents - acting! He introduced his film "Talento de Barrio", where in addition to acting he also served as producer. This material was premiered at the International Latino Film Festival in New York. This film reached record ticket sales in just one day. In 2009 he won the award for Best Video of the Year for his song "Pose".

Daddy Yankee has become known as a leader and role model in his community, as in his genre. He has earned the support and respect of both the Puerto Rican people and the international public. His success, dedication and passion for music will guarantee a bright future for this talented exponent of reggaeton.

Daddy Yankee is nominated for Premios Juventud in the category of My Favorite Urban Artist. Will he take home the award again this? Well, we just have to wait and see if his fans came through for him once again - I have a feeling they did!

Peace and Love Candela
