|Don Omar chronology|
King of Kings is Don Omar's second studio album. It was released on May 23, 2006 three years after his debut studio album The Last Don. Songs in this album are deep and worthy of reflection, especially for sociopolitical-minded Latinos. But it also includes songs that can fire up the party, most evidently on the explosive Beenie Man collaboration "Belly Danza." Spearheaded by Eliel, the sprawling 18 tracks of King of Kings exhibit a surprising variety; songs like the hit lead single, "Angelito", are moody and different-sounding, though still unquestionably reggaeton in style. King of Kings: Armageddon Edition is the deluxe re-release of Don Omar's King of Kings released on December 19, 2006.
