Daddy Yankee is helping Puerto Rico, where he was born and still lives, with a $1 million donation toward hurricane relief. That is on top of the $300,000 he already gave to local organizations and his efforts to fly in much needed supplies. The star returned to the island on Sept. 28 after being on tour and had an emotional reunion with his wife and kids, his rep told People. He's been married to Mireddys González since 1994, and the two are parents to daughters Yamilet and Jesaaelys and son Jeremy.

"As a Puerto Rican who lives on the island, I felt the call, that the rebuilding of my country has to be for a long term," he said in a statement. "In this initial phase, I want to make sure that every person has a plate to eat. In the long run, my commitment is work to ensure that the largest number of families on the island have a safe roof."

The reggaeton artist revealed his $1 million donation will be divided among Feeding America, Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross, and local organizations in Puerto Rico. "Honestly, I just got up and my heartbeat was like a crazy adrenaline rush," he continued. "I said, 'I got to do something. I got to do something because I live there, my family's there.' I asked myself, 'Okay, what can I do right now? Gather supplies, get everybody involved, and try to bring all the supplies to Puerto Rico.' That's what I'm working on right now with the community, my fans, and everybody in a position of power to donate for Puerto Rico." The 40-year-old is yet another artist who has joined the efforts to rebuild after the catastrophic damage left behind by Hurricane Maria.

Daddy Yankee has donated $1 million toward relief efforts in his native island of Puerto Rico, PEOPLE confirms.

The 40-year-old rapper, who was born in San Juan, returned to Puerto Rico Thursday, reuniting with his wife and children after being on tour, a rep for him tells PEOPLE.

The rep says it was his first time seeing the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria.

On top of donating $1 million, the rapper has already given $300,000 toward local organizations, and is currently in the process of flying supplies to the island.

“As a Puerto Rican who lives on the island, I felt the call, that the rebuilding of my country has to be for a long term,” he tells PEOPLE in a statement. “In this initial phase, I want to make sure that every person has a plate to eat. In the long run, my commitment is work to ensure that the largest number of families on the island have a safe roof.”

 

The “Despacito” singer, who lives in Puerto Rico full time and whose real name is Ramon Ayala Rodriguez, said the $1 million will be divided among Feeding America, the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity and local organizations.

Speaking to PEOPLE recently, the musician said that what is occurring in Puerto Rico is “unbelievable.”

“There’s no power and no communication in Puerto Rico,” he said. “Right now everybody is trying to rebuild the country, waiting for help. Right now, we got at least one more week for water and food, but after that it’s going to be chaos. We don’t want that.”

“Honestly, I just got up and my heartbeat was like a crazy adrenaline rush. I said, “I got to do something. I got to do something because I live there, my family’s there.” I asked myself, “Okay, what can I do right now? Gather supplies, get everybody involved and try to bring all the supplies to Puerto Rico.” That’s what I’m working on right now with the community, my fans and everybody in a position of power to donate for Puerto Rico,” he continued.

“Help is on the way. Everybody is involved right now — it’s a long process,” he added. “It’s a big mobilization of supplies. We have the government mobilizing different emergency groups in Puerto Rico, everything that we the artists are gathering as well. It takes a strategy and infrastructure to make that happen and we are organizing. But help is on the way.”

His donation is already on top of 10 trucks full of supplies donated by his fans at his concerts, according to the AP.

When you read the names of the artists who are set to perform at the third annual Tidal X Brooklyn concert, you are going to audibly gasp. JAY-Z, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, and Daddy Yankee are just a few of the stars coming together on Oct. 17 to raise awareness and funds to support the relief and recovery efforts for the natural disasters that have struck the world in the last few weeks. According to a press release, 100 percent of the proceeds of the concert will be donated to organizations including The Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort for Puerto Rico, Global Giving, All Hands Volunteers, Kids in Need Foundation, Direct Relief, One America Appeal, Greater Houston Community Foundation, American Civil Liberties Union, Miami Community Foundation, Habitat For Humanity in Puerto Rico, and more.

The concert will be hosted by radio personality Angie Martinez at Barclays Center in New York City and is set to have special appearances from Rosie Perez and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Many of the names taking the stage have already donated to hurricane relief, including J Lo, Daddy Yankee, and Fat Joe. Bacardí, one of the presenting sponsors, has also donated $1.3 million to the Tidal X Brooklyn charities on top of the $3 million it gave to Puerto Rico, Florida, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and Mexico this month.

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony continue to prove exes can still be friends. The two have come together and formed Somos Una Voz (We Are One Voice), an alliance joining big names like Alex Rodriguez, Bruno Mars, Daddy Yankee, Ed Sheeran, Jada Pinkett Smith, Luis Fonsi, Maluma, Narciso Rodriguez, Pitbull, Ricky Martin, and Vin Diesel to work together "to rush food, shelter, medicine, power, and communications to those in need from the effects of the recent natural disasters," according to a press release.

As part of their initiative, the alliance launched a GoFundMe campaign that has so far raised over $30,000. "Together, our alliance members reach more than 1 billion followers on social media across the planet. Just imagine what we could do with big and small donations from the people we reach, our corporate friends and ourselves. That's it. That's the big idea. Together, we can become one powerful voice that brings hope and relief to the people that need it most," says its website.

Marc Anthony spoke about the alliance and all the support they've received on Good Morning America, saying, "You'll be hearing from us soon with some major announcements coming up in the next week. If anybody is listening, just know that we are coming, just know that we care. We are here, ready, willing, and able." Jennifer herself donated $1 million from the proceeds of her Las Vegas residency to help hurricane relief in Puerto Rico.

On Sunday, Jennifer Lopez joined New York governor Andrew Cuomo in a press conference announcing she was donating $1 million from the proceeds of her Las Vegas show to aid hurricane relief in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

First in Spanish and then in English, Lopez, 48, shared her announcement in a speech that was live-streamed on Twitter.

“Alex Rodriguez and I, who are both New Yorkers, are utilizing all our resources and relationships in entertainment, sports and business to garner support for Puerto Rican and Caribbean relief efforts,” Lopez said.

In addition to her own personal contribution, Lopez announced that the New York Yankees and the MLB “have both committed to join us in giving a significant contribution to this cause.”

Lopez shared that together with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, they were working to spearhead “additional relief efforts” to “rush the relief that our brothers and sisters in Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean desperately need.”

She announced she was also working with Dallas Mavericks owner and Shark Tank star Mark Cuban and Dallas Mavericks Puerto Rican player J.J. Barea to send over two airplanes filled with supplies and generators to San Juan, Puerto Rico — they’re just waiting for air clearance.

“I’ve been so moved by the initial responses,” she continued. “They have been overwhelming, nobody has said no. Anybody we’ve have called is right there asking what they can do. They’re all very eager to help.”

#PuertoRico needs our help. Thank you @JLo for joining us today. https://t.co/VFHVcMu4To

— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) September 24, 2017

In her speech, Lopez confirmed that she still has not heard from all of her family members in Puerto Rico.

“My cousin and I and our family still haven’t been able to hear from all of our family over there and we are concerned for them and for everybody on the island,” she said, echoing the news she revealed on Thursday.

“The conditions are dire,” the star told PEOPLE. “We need to do as much as we can to help the people of Puerto Rico.”

In the meantime, Lopez is doing everything she can to help raise awareness and money for Puerto Rico in the aftermath of the devastating storm.

“Jen and Alex are making personal phone calls to their celebrity friends and heads of corporations and asking them to donate either funds, planes or money to get supplies to Puerto Rico,” says a source.

Lopez, Rodriguez and Anthony are among other stars with ties to the island making impassioned pleas for donations and aid. Ricky Martin, “Despacito” singer Daddy Yankee and Rosie Perez are also using their star power to help raise awareness and money.

“What’s on my mind is what’s going on in Puerto Rico. The devastation is beyond belief,” J Lo said in an Instagram post backstage from her Las Vegas residency show. “Me and my cousin still haven’t been able to hear from our families over there.

“What’s foremost on my mind and many others is trying to figure out the best way to help,” she added. “Today, Puerto Rico needs our help. I urge you to support and donate to the efforts of the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Areizaga. Together we can help rebuild our island, and the Caribbean.”

Hurricane Maria caused devastation as it passed over Puerto Rico on Wednesday, including in the colorful La Perla neighborhood, best known to non-residents as the location showcased in the music video for Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s summer hit “Despacito.”

However, as the Caribbean island begins its struggle to get back on its feet in the days following the storm, the Daily Beast took some heat on Thursday for using the pop song as a lens through which to view the human suffering.

The piece, titled “Famed ‘Despacito’ Neighborhood Destroyed by Hurricane Maria as Puerto Rico Struggles in the Dark” from writers Christopher Dickey and Pablo Venes, has been slammed by critics for being insensitive toward the people whose lives were destroyed, and to a part of the world that existed long before “Despacito” brought it to a wider audience.

“Hey @dailybeast where do you get off with this bulls— headline/framing,” GQ contributor Joshua Rivera wrote on Twitter.

One paragraph equating the song’s sexually charged lyrics to the tragedy experienced by the people of Puerto Rico was singled out as the most objectionable portion of the story.

“There’s a line in ‘Despacito’ where Luis Fonsi sings about making love on the beach in Puerto Rico ‘until the waves scream, ‘Oh Lord!’ (‘Hasta que las olas griten ‘Ay Bendito!’) But as the waves and wind screamed on Wednesday it was the people who were crying and praying,” the section reads.

“It’s almost as if one shouldn’t use a reference to a pop song when reporting on a horrifying natural disaster!” wrote one user. Another simply shared a screenshot of the passage with the caption, “ughhhhhhh.”

After 16 weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, ‘Despacito,’ by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, featuring Justin Bieber has been dethroned by Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do,” just one week after its release.

The Spanish-language smash hit tied with Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s 1995 “One Sweet Day” for the longest run at the No.1 spot. If the track had stayed at the top for one more week, it would’ve made history as the longest-running song at No. 1 of all time. But the possibility dwindled once Swift released her long-awaited song—the Grammy winner’s first solo single in three years.

This single is the first off of Swift’s forthcoming album, Reputation, which is set to drop on Nov. 10th. It soared from the 77th spot on the chart, where it debuted, to No. 1. It also earned the highest weekly streams and sales for a song in 2017.

Last week, Mariah Carey and Taylor Swift fans banded together on social media to help Swift’s song get to the top spot in hopes of putting the ‘Despacito’ phenomenon to an end and not letting it surpass Carey’s record. They urged fans to stream the song as much as possible with one user tweeting, “All fandoms must unite to stop Despacito from breaking Mariah’s record by buying and streaming Taylor Swift’s new song.”

Ending that streak wasn’t a difficulty for Swifties after its strong start. “Look What You Made Me Do” immediately broke records, garnering the most YouTube global streams in a span of 24 hours, according to Billboard.

Taylor Swift dethroned Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” on the No. 1 spot of the Billboard Hot 100 with her song, “Look What You Made Me Do,” and fans rushed to social media to thank the singer for stopping the “Despacito” takeover.

“We knew the only person who could stop the evil that is Despacito was Taylor Swift. We knew and we were right,” one user tweeted.

“Thank you @taylorswift13 for stopping that crap of a song called “Despacito” from breaking @MariahCarey‘s legendary @billboard record,” tweeted another.

Indeed, “Despacito” logged its 16th week at No. 1 on Sept. 9, matching Mariah Carey’s and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day,” which reigned for 16 weeks from 1995 to 1996. It was the longest command in the chart’s archives. Now, on the new Sept. 16 list, “Despacito” dropped to No. 2, which “Look What You Made Me Do” taking the top spot.

“Look What You Made Me Do” also launched with the top weekly download sales this year: 353,000 in the week ending Aug. 31. Swift is the 13th woman with at least five Hot 100 No. 1 singles. Carey leads the pack with 18 No. 1 songs. Swift has also now topped the Hot 100 with the first single from each of her last three albums: “Look What You Made Me do,” “Shake It Off” and “Never.”

Swift is also the first woman to top the Hot 100 this year. “Look What You Made Me Do” is the first song by a woman unaccompanied by a male artist to rule the Hot 100 since Adele’s “Hello.”

Taylor Swift‘s “Look What You Made Me Do” dominated the charts and the conversation in the music world last week, but its reign is now being threatened… by another Taylor Swift song.

Early Sunday morning, Swift released the next single off her upcoming “Reputation” album titled, “…Ready For It?”, and the song has quickly soared to the No. 2 spot on the iTunes download charts and given the pop star the top two spots on the list. The two songs topped Logic’s “1-800-273-8255” and the big hit of the summer, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito.”

“…Ready For It?” was first teased on Saturday, as a snippet from the song was used on ESPN to introduce the Alabama/Florida State football game. The song takes a darker turn than much of Swift’s past work and describes the start of a new relationship.

“Knew he was a killer/ First time that I saw him,” read the lyrics. “Wondered how many girls/ he had loved and left haunted…Younger than my exes/ But he act like such a man, so/ I see nothing better/ I keep him forever/ Like a vendetta…”

Swift‘s “Reputation” will be released Nov. 10. Check out fans’ reaction to the new single below.

If you haven’t already heard, “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber now ties Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s 1995 smash hit “One Sweet Day” as the longest running No. 1 song on the charts at 16 weeks. The Spanish-language track has been topping charts and breaking records—such as most watched video on YouTube—all summer long but now, people are calling for the “Despacito” frenzy to end. 

If the song makes it just one more week at the top of the Hot 100 chart, it will take the throne as the longest-running song at No. 1 of all time, and Mariah Carey fans are not happy. They are subsequently rooting for Taylor Swift’s newest song “Look What You Made Me Do” to reach the top of the charts to end the “Despacito” streak.

Fans of Carey anxiously awaited the release of T.Swift’s “LWYMMD” and since it dropped, they’ve urged people to stream the song as much as possible.

Eat your heart out, Justin Bieber! On Monday, Sesame Street released its version of the Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee summer anthem Despacito where Ernie — joined by Rosita and Bert — pays homage to El Patito, which is Spanish for his rubber duckie!

“Sesame Street” continues its streak of family-friendly, on- point pop culture parodies with the new song “El Patito,” which is a cover of the popular “Despacito” and, in typical “Sesame Street” fashion, is “Spanish for rubber duckie.”

The video isn’t an exact re-creation of the music video but it does pay homage with shots of a beach. The tune is a hybrid Spanish/English track about how much Ernie loves his rubber duckie. He doesn’t sing about anything else, really.

While the song is mostly in English, Ernie does throw in a little Spanish about his rubber duckie.

“Oh, el patito, es mi favorito/Donde quiera que vaya hace su sonido/El patito es tu buen amigo/El patito,” Ernie declares in the song.

At first his partner Bert is annoyed by the song, saying “Oh no, not this song again” (which we can understand). However, by the end he admits the song is catchy and continues to sing long after Ernie is done.

The original music video by Luis Fonsi and featuring Daddy Yankee recently became the most-watched video on YouTube, and the first to hit 3 billion views. This version doesn’t include Justin Bieber, who is on the immensely popular remix track, which has been the No. 1 song in America on the Billboard Top 100 chart for 15 weeks. It’s also  on track to break the record for the single that’s spent the longest at the top of the charts.

Have you lost track of the endless headlines from this summer? Well, late-night host James Corden sings this season’s news events to the tune of mega-hit ‘Despacito’ by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee.

His ballad begins: “Song of summer/ Okay, I know the song of summer’s ‘Despacito’/ and I’m singing slowly just like ‘Despacito’/ But this song’s about more than just ‘Despacito’/ Song of summer.”

The host’s lyrics tackle Donald Trump blaming both sides for Charlottesville tragedy, the trans military ban and Scaramucci’s few days in the White House. “Donald Trump made comments that brought him shame, kept saying that both sides are to blame, after denouncing the Nazi’s slowly, slowly,” comedian croons to the beat of the summer hit.

His tune also grapples with other serious topics, including health care: “Plus GOP voted on a health care bill, but slowly found Obamacare they could not kill, and that left Senator Mitch McConnell crying, wah wah,” the 38-year-old sings.

He takes a few digs at pop culture too, singing about the confusing ending of the Bachelorette, the birth of Beyoncé’s twins and Harry Styles’ acting debut in war film Dunkirk. “And many things I did not understand like why did The Bachelorette end up choosing Bryan,” he sang.

Other mentions include O.J.’s parole, the breakup of Chris Pratt and Anna Faris and the Game of Throne leaks.

The television host ends the ditty with hopes that next year won’t be so crazy: “Next summer I hope we can take it slowly, like Despacito.”
