Reggaeton star Daddy Yankee has Akon and the Black Eyed Peas' Fergie and will.i.am in his corner on "The Cartel: The Big Boss," due June 5 via El Cartel/Interscope. The first single is the Scott Storch-produced "Impacto," an English remix of which will feature Fergie.

Other guests on "The Cartel" include Jim Jones and the Pussycat Dolls' Nicole Scherzinger. Production was supplied by Akon, will.i.am, Mr. ColliPark, Eli "El Musicologo", Tiny Tunes, Diesel and Menace.

"The Cartel" is the follow-up to Daddy Yankee's 2004 breakthrough "Barrio Fino," which reached No. 1 on both the Top Latin and Top Tropical Albums charts. It featured the hits "Gasolina," "Lo Que Paso, Paso" and "No Me Dejes Solo."

Meanwhile, the artist is slated to make his film debut in "Talento de Barrio," due later this year. He is also in the midst of launching a charitable organization, Fundacion Corazon Guerrero.
