Yandel Is The First Latino To Perform At An HBO Fight
Over the weekend, Saturday, November 21, Puerto Rican reggaeton artist, Yandel, hit a major career milestone.
“La Leyenda” was spotted clinking glasses of D’Usse, a cognac drink made in France, with hip pop stars, Jay Z and Beyoncé at the Cotto vs. Canelo fight. Many people worldwide were anticipating this big match as Mexican boxer; Canelo Alvarez was finally facing Miguel Cotto, a Puerto Rican boxer.
After Yandel gave an outstanding performance at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, he became the first Latino artist to perform live from an HBO pay-per-view boxing match. But all this wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the reggaeton artist signing with Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports, Cotto Promotions, and TIDAL weaponry.
A few months back, the Boricua signed a deal with TIDAL to live stream his upcoming concert taking place on December 12 at the Convention Center in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
“I am really excited and thankful for opportunity to work with Cotto Promotions, Tidal and Roc Nation. It is an honor to become the first artist to represent not only my country, but also my music in an event of this magnitude with major sports and entertainment figures that I truly admire. This is without a doubt a new milestone in my career and an inspiration to continue to offer my fans music experiences with the quality that my audience deserves,” said Yandel in a press conference.
“The Legend” must be feeling at the top with this new accomplishment and we, as a Latino community must be feeling very proud.
Keep up the great work Yandel, you are a true admiration to all your fans.
