“To me this is an honor, not just as a Reggaeton pioneer but
as a Latin to take our music to so many places through the big
screen. This is just another step not just for my career but
also for the Latin community in general, this proves how we
have grown and have become stronger in the USA and in the
whole world” said the artist.
“King of Kings” presents contagious beats of ‘dance hall’,
merengue, bachata, ‘reggae roots’ and ballads stamped with the
unique reggaeton of DON OMAR and that has proclaimed him the
most popular and complete artist of urban music. Some of the
songs included on this album are: "Muñecas de Porcelana", "Repórtese",
"Infieles", "Candela", "Conteo", "Salió el sol" and the smash
hit of “Angelito”. The album includes guest appearances from
stellar artists such as Juelz Santana, Zion, Miri Ben-Arie,
Beenie Man and Macky Ranks. "King of Kings" is the evolution
of Reggaeton: music, emotions, fusions and diverse rhythms
that make this album the most complete of the year.
Currently, DON OMAR is hard at work supporting "King of Kings"
with promotional and concert appearances in Venezuela, before
traveling to Asia.
