Daddy Yankee performs onstage during the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina festival presented by Sprint at The Forum on Nov. 22, 2014 in Inglewood, Calif.

In light of Puerto Rico's catastrophic flooding and island-wide power outages caused by Hurricane Maria, Daddy Yankee is urging his fans to help those who have been affected by the storm.

"#NYC please bring tonight bottles of water, diapers, batteries! At my concert at the @FordAmpConey #ConeyIsland let's support my island," the Puerto Rican superstar wrote on Twitter, adding an emoji of Puerto Rico's flag.

On Sept. 19, before Hurricane Maria made landfall, he sent a message of love to his home, saying Puerto Rico "contigo en mi" heart.

Daddy Yankee is performing at the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk in New York Thursday night (Sept. 21) before heading to Illinois (Chicago on Sept. 22) and Connecticut (Mashantucket on Sept. 23).
