Daddy Yankee is having a busy 2010. Not only did his new album, Mundial (Sony), drop today, but he just signed on to play a boxer in the film Pleasant Ave, which begins shooting in Puerto Rico at the end of the year.
The reggaetonero will get a chance to fine-tune his acting (and singing) skills on the CBS soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful from June 1–7, during which he’ll perform songs from the new record, including “Grito Mundial” and “Que Es La Que Hay.”
