Urban Latin artist Yandel is making history. It was recently revealed that he has become the first Latin artist to live stream a concert on Jay Z's Tidal.
According to Billboard, subscribers of the music streaming service will be able watch Yandel's upcoming Dec. 12 concert, which will be live streamed from the Convention Center in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The outlet also reports that middleweight world boxing champion, Miguel Cotto, will produce the event via his partnership with Roc Nation Sports to promote concert events on the island.
“I am really excited and thankful for opportunity to work with Cotto Promotions, Tidal and Roc Nation,” Yandel said in a press conference. “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."
Prior to the big event in December, Yandel will perform live from Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center during Cotto’s historic match against two-time world champ Canelo Alvarez. The Nov. 21 event is slated to be distributed via HBO pay-per-view.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Yandel will hit the stage at the first-ever Latin American Music Awards show in October. Other names confirmed to perform for the show include actor and singer Jencarlos Canela, Maluma, Natalie La Rose, Luis Coronel, Mexican pop diva Gloria Trevi, Gerardo Ortiz and Italian pop trio Il Volo. CD9, a five-member boy band from Mexico will make its U.S. debut.
The Latin American Music Awards will air live Oct. 8 on Telemundo from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
It's safe to say that Yandel will be very busy these next few months as he is also prepping the release of his third solo album, Dangerous, on Nov. 6 via Sony.
