Product Description

The King Of Reggaeton, Daddy Yankee, returns withhis new album El Cartel: The Big Boss . After international platinum success with his first 4 albums, Daddy Yankee released, El Barrio Fino , which went Platinum in the U.S alone, and solidified himself as the leading pioneer of the reggaeton movement. El Cartel: The Big Boss is the follow-up studio album everybody has been waiting 3 years for. Having enlisted super-producers such as will.i.am and Scott Storch, Daddy Yankee more than lives up to the hype and delivers his most multi-dimensional and complete album to date. This is the explicit version.

Amazon.com

If the reggaeton revolution slowed for a second and you're not sure why, consider the comings and goings of Daddy Yankee: Three years have passed since he lit a Latino fire under the non-Latino world with "Gasolina," and despite the best efforts of vast clusters of tough-talking, body-rocking followers, only he, apparently, can keep it stoked. El Cartel: The Big Boss is a 21-track thrill ride destined to restore reggaeton's lost luster. The first few minutes creak--as intros go, "Jefe" is on the longwinded side--but from there it's a riot of bump-bumps, nemesis-bashing, and quick-tongued braggadocio. All credit to DY for again climbing atop a swirling mass of beats and remembering to swagger appealingly on the way up, but the small army of producers and friends who line up to pay the big boss respects on this disc also deserve their props: Fergie makes an impact on the Scott Storch-produced "Impacto" without forcing it in an overly mainstream direction, "Papi Lover" with Pussycat Doll Nicole Sherzinger busts out a cool bhangra-ragga vibe, and Will.i.am winds up "Plane to PR," a slight but contagious ode to Caribbean senoritas, tight. --Tammy La Gorce

Customer Reviews

This record sounds like an R-n-B or pop album.
Roberto
What I especially like about the tracks on The Big Boss is the skillful way that DY experiments sound but somehow manages to stay true to his reggaeton roots.

It's been three years since Daddy Yankee's turbo-charged "Gasolina" roared to the top of the charts and signaled the mainstream arrival of reggaeton, the down-and-dirty Latino rap style cultivated in the urban barrios of Puerto Rico. The revved-up single triggered predictions of a hip-hop crossover and a new Latin music craze.

But the craze never came and the race for a crossover has since been canceled.

Now, Yankee returns with his first full studio album (in stores today) since the charismatic and disciplined rapper was crowned most likely to lead that elusive crossover bid. The Big Boss has thrust his engines in reverse and signaled the genre's new direction: A reggaeton retrenchment.

But not a retreat.

Like a good politician in shaky times, Yankee is playing to his base with 21 tracks that mostly stick to reggaeton's irresistibly bouncy rhythms and chest-thumping themes: sex, partying, nationalism, barrio loyalty and, as the title suggests, brash bragging about who's the best.

The new work gains a little hip-hop/R&B luster with the help of non-reggaeton collaborators such as will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas, Nicole Scherzinger from the Pussycat Dolls and Fergie, who's featured on the first single, "Impacto," produced by Canadian hitmeister Scott Storch.

Yet with the exception of a duet with Akon on the taut, politically defiant "Bring It On," the star power Doe's provide the best moments on a CD that could have been trimmed by a third.

Daddy Yankee (born Ramon Ayala) leaves no doubt that he still has the skill and style that made him stand out from reggaeton's crowded rank-and-file.

I have been listening to this genre since the begining on 1992 out of the "marquesinas" when it used to be called "underground" and artist such as Vico C, DJ Playero, DJ Adam and The Noise were out there selling Casette Tapes. This genre have progress since then, what used to be a form of a bunch of friends hanging out have transform to what we listen on this CD, just like evolution adapt an overcome this genre have adapted to the times. The tracks on this album have different beats that we are not used too in this genre, DY came out fresh adapting his style and this genre to a whole new level. Themes like "Bring it on","Papi Lover", "Plane to P.R." are on a whole new level in this game targeting U.S. audiences. Themes like "El Jefe" brings a new twist to the Genre. If you expect to dance to the rythm of "Dem Bow" you might as well hang it and dont buy the CD, if you were expecting "Gasolina 2" hang it because thats yesterday's news, today's news and tomorrow's will be different. I highly recommend this Album because it means a change in the Genre that in some articles it's been said that people are getting ready for its funeral, hang your Suits people because just like RAP and HIP HOP this genre is here to Stay.

I've spent the last 3 days listening to El Cartel: The Big Boss, and I'm happy to report that Daddy Yankee's latest is actually very good. Back track- I picked up Barrio Fino about this time in '05, and truthfully, it took about 3 months to grow on me. Since then, however, it's become one of my all-time favorite CDs, and I still enjoy listening to it. Fast forward- The Big Boss grew on me in about three minutes. What I especially like about the tracks on The Big Boss is the skillful way that DY experiments sound but somehow manages to stay true to his reggaeton roots. The CD doesn't try to be too hip hop and seems to be tailored to an "American" audience without pandering. I found the blend of English and Spanish languages well thought out, playful, and pleasant. When I hit [REPEAT]- Bring it On, Papi Lover, Plane to P.R., Impacto (sin Fergie), and Me Quedaria. Anyway, as some would say "it's Daddy Yankee, so you know it's going to be good!"

El Cartel is a hot cd. It has a different flavor of reggaeton that makes you want to dance endlessly. Impacto of course is the most bangin' track on the cd. Some of the tracks are in English, which allows the non Spanish speaking audience the opportunity to truly appreciate this genre of music and Daddy Yankee's extreme talent. As Daddy Yankee says the King is back!

Get Ready Ladies and gentleman to a whole nother round of beef between Don Omar and "DY". I've waited patiently for this album and came out to be decent, but right off the bat you kno Daddy is lookin for fire and adds more wood with his first Track "Jefe." That Track has such a powerful beat and a lyrical stance sayin he aint goin nowhere, that he is the KING. His cockiness flows all ova the track, but thats what shows he still has it at battling and defending himself.

Alot of tracks on this album catch me production wise, more then lyrically. Reason being, Daddy Yankee is still the same with his quick lyrics on some tracks, which is fine, but much harder to understand now. He seems to stress his accent more and takes pauses before the next word which is annoyin sometimes but like i said the production makes up for it. Example, "En Sus Marcas Listos Fuera" is quick paced like some of his olda tracks with a ridiculous beat that will surely get the parties pumpin. It has such a catchy beat but tryin to hear da words is a struggle. Track 3, "Cambio", another catchy party pumpin beat talkin about people in da club and him cambiando da females. Now the Hottest Reggaeton track here is Fuera De Control, its an infectious beat that gets you perrando to death with a female/male and talks about this shorty who is like no other, who is FUERA DE CONTROL. Now the Lead Single Impacto and its remix are without a doubt infectious tracks dat get you pumped up, but dis is better lyrically cuz he is quick and you understand him more. "Ella Me Levanto" has a hard beat and describes about a shorty dat played him but the next came up and lifted his up world up, strong song without a doubt. "El Celular" has such a decent hip hop beat with a crazy electronic beat that has a tiny trance like flow in da back.
