Catalog Time Capsule: Daddy Yankee “Barrio Fino” (2004)

Barrio FinoWelcome to Throwback Thursdays, a monthly spotlight on a gem from The Orchard catalog that was released a long, long time ago.

Album: Barrio Fino
Artist: Daddy Yankee
Released: 2004
Genre: Latin / Hip-Hop / Reggaeton

2018 has been a massive victory lap for Puerto Rico’s “King of Reggaeton.” Daddy Yankee kicked off the year with a Grammy performance and eight wins last month at Billboard’s Latin Music Awards, thanks to his 2017 crossover mega-hit “Despacito,” which he co-wrote and performs alongside Luis Fonsi.

So naturally, we’ve been cranking the platinum-certified Barrio Fino, DY’s breakthrough 2004 success featuring “Gasolina” [#10 on Billboard‘s “50 Greatest Latin Songs of All Time”]. It was the first reggaeton album to reach #1 on Billboard‘s “Top Latin Albums” and it’s still fire. 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥🔥 🔥 🔥

The Orchard is proud to distribute El Cartel Records, Daddy Yankee’s own imprint, including El Cangri.com (2002), Barrio Fino (2004), El Cartel: The Big Boss (2007), Talento de Barrio (2008) and Mundial (2010).
