Mundial (English: Worldwide) is the name of the fifth studio album and tenth overall by Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee through El Cartel Records released on 27 April 2010.[1] Mundial was nominated for a Lo Nuestro Award for Urban Album of the Year.[2] It won the Billboard Latin Music Award for Latin Rhythm Album of the Year in 2011.[3]

Background[edit]

Unlike his previous albums, he describes the album as a mixture of Reggaeton, merengue, perico ripiao, soca and dance hall. Before the release, Daddy Yankee confirmed that the album would include 13 tracks plus 3 bonus tracks on the iTunes version. The album doesn't include the tracks recorded with Luis Fonsi and Don Omar since Yankee signed for the album to be released under Sony Music and not Universal Music Group.[4] He had also recorded a new song named "Intenso" which was released on his birthday for his fans, but said that it was not going to be on the album.[5]
