Daddy Yankee fans rejoice!

Barrio Fino, the 2004 album that led Daddy Yankee to become an international superstar, is now available on streaming platforms. The release comes after the Puerto Rican superstar became the first Latin artist to hit No. 1 on Spotify as the most-streamed singer thanks to his smash with Luis Fonsi, "Despacito."

Originally, Barrio Fino was distributed by Universal Music Latino and the rights happened to be completely of Daddy Yankee, after the parties' license agreement expired. But now, Daddy Yankee and his company, El Cartel Records, reached an agreement with The Orchard for global digital distribution.

The album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart on July 31, 2004, the first reggaeton LP to hit that spot. It eventually became the top-selling Latin album of 2005, the same year that the superstar won his first-ever Latin Grammy award when the set was named the Best Urban Music Album.

Barrio Fino includes Yankee’s greatest hits such as “Lo que paso, paso,” “No Me Dejes Solo” (feat. Wisin & Yandel), “Tu Principe” (feat. Zion & Lennox) and the urban anthem “Gasolina,” which peaked at No. 32 on the Hot 100.

“Gasolina became the most famous song in the history of the Latin urban movement ... the whole world was able to know the genre of reggaeton,” said Yankee.
