Daddy Yankee Debuts “Problema” Live on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Daddy Yankee shut down traffic for the live debut of his new single “Problema.” The Puerto Rican icon performed the song during Monday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Daddy Yankee performed the song outside of downtown Miami.

Daddy Yankee performed “Problema” live from Miami. With a marching band and a team of dancers, he took over a freeway bridge leading into the city. That could’ve been a problema for local drivers, but the reggaeton music pioneer put on one heck of a spectacular show.

As if DY fans did not get enough of “Problema,” he also performed the song on Tuesday during Good Morning America. His marching band and dancers joined him for a live rendition of the hit during the daytime.

“Problema” is going viral on TikTok.

“Problema” is Daddy Yankee’s first taste of new music in 2021. He wrote it with Boricua singer Justin Quiles and the song’s producers, Dímelo Flow, BK, and Snow Mike. On the slinky track, he raps about a woman that’s giving him a hard time. DY can’t get her out of his head. The perreo breakdown at the end of “Problema” makes it one of the more exciting reggaeton releases this year.

“Problema” is going viral on TikTok thanks to the dance challenge associated to the song. Daddy Yankee’s music going viral from dance videos actually predates TikTok. He experienced similar success with his past hits “Con Calma” and “Dura.”

During last month’s Premio Lo Nuestro awards, Daddy Yankee gave the first live performance of his hit “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta” with Marc Anthony. That was one of the show’s highlights as he did a one-two step alongside the salsa music giant.
