Daddy Yankee Performs in Argentina

Buenos Aires had its dose of reggaeton after Daddy Yankee performed at the Geba Stadium. "The Big Boss" took center stage to the rhythm of "Rompe," to then continue with "King Daddy" from his legendary album "Barrio Fino" in 2004. "Gasolina," "Lo Que Paso, Paso,” “Despacito" and "Dura" were also included in the repertoire.
