7. Barrio Fino En Directo (2005)

Daddy Yankee – Barrio Fino En Directo (2005, CD) - Discogs

“This album was huge when I was a kid. The Snoop Dogg collaboration and the G-Unit collaboration, respectively, were kind of what brought the second wave of reggaetón to America in the mid-2000s. To this day, the best moments on the record are liable to set a (worthwhile) party off effortlessly. It doesn’t really even matter if you can’t understand a lick of what he says, the energy is there, and that’s all that matters.”

6. King Daddy (2013)

“The king of reggaetón, Daddy Yankee, returns with his 6th studio album.

Daddy Yankee - DY Mundial (Deluxe Version) 2010

“Daddy Yankee is turning out to be one of my favorite groups. I like a lot of the music which comes from the Caribbean. Of course, there is nothing like being in Puerto Rico and listening to the sounds of the islands. I can’t wait to get back there someday.”

3. Talento De Barrio (2008)

Daddy Yankee - Talento De Barrio | daddykool

“The focus of this album is understood and the album is well-executed, since its atmosphere is nothing more than simply listening to it at parties, discos, dances, in the neighborhoods, for people who want to listen to music for entertainment, for people who only consume rarely some music, and this formula works perfectly”

2. Prestige (2012)

Prestige: Daddy Yankee: Música

“he quality of lyrics and music is tremendous; Daddy Yankee writing and those of La Nazza defeating the competition with their tremendous production. There are some issues that I really didn’t like very much, but I understand the need to evolve with gender. The good songs of the album + the songs of Yankee in the various mixtapes made by De la Nazza + the collaborations that Yankee has made with other artists this 2012 as with Farruko, J Alvarez, Arcangel, Gotay, and Jory have made this 2012 the year of Daddy Yankee and El Cartel!”

1. Barrio Fino (2004)

Daddy Yankee - Barrio Fino - Music

“Barrio Fino is one of the hottest albums ever made by a reggaeton artist. Daddy Yankee did his thing on this album and he deserves all the credit he got for it. He is also the finest of all reggaeton artists. Hope he keeps up the good work.”
