Yandel Is The First Latino To Perform At An HBO Fight, Because Jay Z


Over the weekend, veteran Reggaeton artist Yandel hit a major career milestone. The Dangerous artist was seen clinking glasses of D’Usse with the likes of Jay Z and Beyoncé at the Miguel Cotto vs. Canelo Alvarez fight. After delivering a ground-breaking performance at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Yandel became the first Latino artist to perform live from an HBO pay-per-view boxing match. What’s more? It’s all because of Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports, Cotto Promotions, and TIDAL weaponry.

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.”
