WHO IS HE: In the early 2000s, Don Omar managed to become one of reggaeton’s first true international superstars. In 2002 his song “Desde Que Llego” was a hit and was followed the next year by his debut album “The Last Don.” The album contained the hits “Intocable” and “Dile.” The Puerto Rican native’s songs began appearing on various compilations, the most notable being “Reggaeton Latino,” which appeared on the “Chosen Few” compilation and became a reggaeton anthem. 2006 saw the release of “King of Kings,” which topped the Latin album chart and reached No. 8 on the Billboard 200, making it the first reggaeton album ever to break into the Top 10. The album’s lead single “Angelito” was a No. 1 hit. In 2009 Omar released “iDon,” which contained the single “Sexy Robotica.”
WHAT TO EXPECT: Reggaeton superstar Omar makes his return to Atlantic City on Saturday night with a much-anticipated show at Revel’s Casino Hotel’s Ovation Hall. The Puerto Rican native became a crossover success in the early- to mid-2000s with his danceable beats, creative arrangements and mature R&B-inspired ballads. Fans can expect to hear all of their favorites including “Dile,” “Dale Don Dale,” “Reggaeton Latino,” “Le Recompensa,” “Angelito,” “Pobre Diable,” “Sexy Robotica” and “Aunque te Fuiste.”
WHAT’S NEW: Omar is scheduled to release the new album “The Last Don 2” in 2014.
