Biography

William Omar Landrón (born February 10, 1978 in Puerto Rico), better known as Don Omar, is a reggaeton singer. He is one of the most well known reggaeton artists in Latin America. His cross over success in the U.S. has given him more exposure to English speaking Reggaeton fans, making him one of the more recognizable faces of Reggaeton along with Daddy Yankee and Tego Calderón. Don Omar's popularity is currently rising and he recently appeared on MTV. Omar is best known for his songs "Dile" and "Dale Don Dale" from his first album The Last Don and "Reggaeton Latino". His songs center around life and love; some examples of these would be "La Recompenza" (The Reward), "Pobre Diabla" (Poor Devil (fem.)) and "Aunque te Fuiste" (Even Though You Left).

His debut album, The Last Don, sold over 350,000 units in South America. Both "The Last Don" as the live edition of it have been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Worldwide, The Last Don: Live [CD & DVD] sold over one million copies, according to the official website. His debut single, "Dale Don Dale", sold over 100,000 copies in South America. He received the awards for "Latin Pop Album of the Year" and "New Artist & Latin Rap/Hip-Hop Album of the Year" by the Billboard Latin Music Awards in 2003. The Last Don: Live [CD & DVD] was also nominated for "Urban Music Album" at the 2005 Latin Grammy Awards

He started his career after facing many obstacles when Héctor Delgado (from the duo Héctor y Tito) gave him an opportunity to be a backup singer. After that, he sang in a live concert with Héctor and Tito in 2003, which was released later as a CD and DVD, which included the songs that became instant hits, Baila Morena and Amor de Colegio.

In 2005, Don Omar released the reggaeton album "Da Hitman Presents Reggaeton Latino", which broke the record for "Highest First Week Sales for a Reggaeton Album" by selling over 31,000 units in its first week, resulting a debut of #61 in The Billboard 200. Wisin y Yandel held that record until "Reggaeton Latino" was released.

The first single released from Reggaeton Latino, "Dale Don Dale [Remix]" , which features rapper Fabolous, debuted at #1 on the crossover chart.

He is currently signed to VI Music through Universal Music Latino.

In early 2006, the Governor of Puerto Rico, Aníbal Acevedo Vilá publicly mentioned interest in having Don Omar participate in a program against School Desertion. However, the Secretary of Education has rejected Don Omar sponsoring it due to his lyrics. The local press has also mentioned that Omar himself did not finish High School.

Currently has his own record label "El Orfanato" (The Orphanage) and had a magnificent performance in the 2011 Latin Music Billboard Awards where he received the Award for Latin Rythm Airplay.

    Put your hands up
    Moving only the hips
    Turn half around

    Dance to Kuduro

    Who's going to control the power of this wicked feeling that now gets through your veins,
    and the heat like the sun that can't let you be still at the beat, babe
    Who's going to stop this feeling that makes your hips lose control as you dance,
    This fire burning inside you slowly is gonna get you wild

    Put your hands up
    Moving only the hips
    Turn half around
    Dance to Kuduro
    Don't lose your breath now
    Because this has just started
    Move your head
    Dance to Kuduro

    Move your body, this here is so crazy
    Morena, come to my side
    No one is going to be still
    I want to see you, come on, shake to kuduro
    Move your body, this here is so crazy
    Morena, come to my side
    No one is going to be still
    Oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi,
    Come shake your hips, let's dance kuduro

    there's a couple of mistakes on the lyrics, one of them is

    Ta issa morena o loira vem balançar kuduro

    correct is,

    seiya morena o loira vem balançar kuduro
