KING WILLEM-ALEXANDER, QUEEN MAXIMA ANS THEIR TRIO OF BLONDE DAUGHTERS

Maxima and her mini-mes! Queen joins King Willem-Alexander and their trio of  blonde daughters for the Dutch royal family’s annual summer

It was a case of like mother like daughters today as the Dutch royal family gathered for their annual summer photo.

Queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander were joined by their trio of young daughters, Princesses Amalia, 13, Alexia, 12, and Ariane, 10, all of whom bear more than a passing resemblance to their glamorous mother – though Princess Alexia appears to have inherited her father’s red hair.

The royals arrived at the riverside spot in Warmond by boat to pose for their annual snap, and Maxima wore an appropriately nautical top for the occasion.

The 46-year-old Queen teamed her stripy top with ankle-grazing trousers and navy ballet pumps.

She wore her blonde hair down and completed her outfit with oversized white drop earrings and sunglasses.

She and King Willem-Alexander looked proud as punch to pose with their daughters to be with their daughters for the day and treated them to a boat ride in Warmond

Queen Maxima’s three daughters looked strikingly similar with their long loosely-curled hair.

Eldest daughter Princess Amalia wore a long blue top with embellished detailing on the front and white skinny jeans.

The two younger siblings, Princess Alexia and Princess Ariane also kept their outfits relaxed and matched in their white blouses.

King Willem-Alexander stood up as he steered the family’s boat towards the waiting photographers who had gathered to see them.

Queen Maxima helped with the rope as they arrived and prepared to pose together.

The sun held out for their boating trip and they were able to all sit on the grass with the beautiful backdrop behind them.

BIO OF QUEEN MAXIMA

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. … Queen Máxima of the Netherlands (born Máxima Zorreguieta Cerruti; 17 May 1971) is the wife of King Willem-Alexander. On 30 April 2013, she became the first Dutch queen consort since Princess Emma of Waldeck and Pyrmont, the second wife of King William III in 1890

Máxima Zorreguieta Cerruti was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 17 May 1971. Queen Máxima is the daughter of Jorge Zorreguieta (born 1928), Secretary of Agriculture under General Jorge Rafael Videla during Argentina’s last civil-military dictatorship (1976-1983), and his second wife, María del Carmen Cerruti Carricart (born 1944). She has two brothers, a sister, and three half-sisters by her father’s first wife, Marta López Gil.

She is named after her paternal great-grandmother Máxima Bonorino González (1874–1965). Her father is a scion of the Zorreguieta family who had been landed gentry, professionals, regional politicians, and statesmen for generations. Her maternal great-grandfather was also from the landed gentry; Domingo Carricart Etchart (1885-1953) was a landowner, politician, Director of the Banco Provincial de Buenos Aires, first mayor of González Chaves, and mayor of Tres Arroyos.

She grew up in the Recoleta neighbourhood of Buenos Aires city, and studied at Northlands School, a bilingual school of the city of Olivos. She graduated with a degree in Economics from the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina (UCA) in 1995. This private university is governed by a directory of local bishops, including the current Pope Francis, then Archbishop of Buenos Aires and Grand Chancellor of UCA. During her student years, Francis presided over the traditional Mass at the beginning of classes. She later completed her studies with a Master’s degree in the United States.

From 1989 to 1990, while still in college, she worked for Mercado Abierto Electrónico S.A. From 1992 to 1995, she worked in the sales department of Boston Securities SA in Buenos Aires, where she conducted research on software for financial markets. From July 1996 to February 1998, the current queen Máxima worked for HSBC James Capel Inc. in New York City, where she became vice president of institutional sales for Latin America. From then until July 1999, she was vice president of the emerging markets division of Dresdner Kleinwort Benson in New York. From May 2000 to March 2001 she worked in the Deutsche Bank in Brussels.

BRITAIN-ROYALS-MARRIAGE

She also worked as an English language teacher to children and adults, and of mathematics for high school students and freshmen.

Máxima met Willem-Alexander in April 1999 in Seville, Spain, during the Seville Spring Fair. In an interview, they stated that he introduced himself only as “Alexander”, so that she did not know he was a prince. She thought he was joking when he later told her that he was not only a prince, but the Prince of Orange and heir apparent to the Dutch throne. They agreed to meet again two weeks later in New York, where Máxima was working for Dresdner Kleinwort Benson. Their relationship apparently began in New York, but she did not meet his parents, Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus, for some time.

The news of the couple’s relationship and eventual marriage plans caused controversy in the Netherlands, due to the involvement of Máxima’s father Jorge Zorreguieta as a cabinet minister during the National Reorganization Process, the most recent Argentinian dictatorship. Her father’s tenure as a minister took place during the beginning stages of the Dirty War, a period of repression that saw 10,000–30,000 people killed or disappeared during the seven-year military regime. At the request of the States General, Michiel Baud, a Dutch professor in Latin American studies, carried out an inquiry into the involvement of Zorreguieta in the Dirty War (roughly, 1974–83).

Zorreguieta claimed that, as a civilian, he was unaware of the Dirty War while he was a cabinet minister. Baud determined that Máxima’s father had not been directly involved in any of the numerous atrocities that took place during that period. However, Baud also concluded that Zorreguieta was almost certainly aware of them; in Baud’s view, it was highly unlikely that a cabinet minister would not have known about them. Even so, his possible presence at the royal wedding was debated for several months.

The couple announced their engagement on 30 March 2001; Máxima addressed the nation in Dutch (which at the time she only spoke to basic conversational extent) during the live televised broadcast.

Máxima was granted Dutch citizenship by Royal Decree on 17 May 2001 and now has dual citizenship: Argentine and Dutch.

The engagement was formally approved by the States General later that year—a necessary step for Willem-Alexander to remain heir to the throne.

Máxima and Willem-Alexander were married on 2 February 2002 in a civil ceremony in the Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam, which was then followed by a religious ceremony at Amsterdam’s Nieuwe Kerk (“New Church”).

She remained a Roman Catholic after her marriage

She is the first Dutch queen consort to have been born outside Europe although, through her father, she is a descendant of King Afonso III of Portugal and other noble families of the Iberian Peninsula who moved to the Argentine viceroyalty during the early nineteenth century.

Máxima’s parents were not present at the wedding; her father was told he could not attend due to his role as a cabinet minister during the National Reorganization Process, and her mother chose not to attend without her husband.

The couple has three daughters:

Máxima is also godmother of:

By a decree issued on 25 January 2002, upon the solemnization of marriage, Máxima Zorreguieta was granted the titles Princess of the Netherlands and Princess of Orange-Nassau, and the style Royal Highness was formally conferred upon her. She also became “mevrouw van Amsberg (Mrs. van Amsberg)”.

Another decree issued on the same day also granted her own personal coat of arms and a personal standard

On 13 May 2011, the Dutch parliament confirmed that Máxima would become queen consort of the Netherlands upon her husband’s accession, after a debate over her future title and style.

On 28 January 2013, it was announced that Queen Beatrix would abdicate on 30 April in favour of Willem-Alexander.[33] Máxima is the Kingdom’s first queen consort since Princess Emma of Waldeck and Pyrmont, the second wife of William III. She is the first Dutch queen consort to have been born as a commoner, and the first to have been born outside Europe.

DADDY YANKEE NEW SINGLE “SHAKY SHAKY”

  13723906_10154392493742490_631844479836406853_o

Daddy Yankee did more than anyone to establish reggaeton as a marketable music style during the early 21st century. Yankee’s success was so phenomenal in the wake of his 2004 mainstream breakthrough, Barrio Fino — and in particular the international hit single “Gasolina” — that he transcended cultural boundaries and genre trappings. He became more than just a reggaetonero, having transformed himself into an international name brand by the time his 2007 follow-up album, El Cartel: The Big Boss, was released. Daddy Yankee’s name, image, and music were used to sell soft drinks for Pepsi and footwear for Reebok, as well as a syndicated show for ABC Radio Networks (Daddy Yankee on Fuego) and a feature film for Paramount Pictures (Talento de Barrio). Daddy Yankee indeed had become a business empire, of which the primary asset — his music — remained independent from major-label control: he keenly operated his own independent label, El Cartel Records, and chose to partner with labels such as Interscope only for purposes of marketing and distribution. Although the business side of Daddy Yankee threatened to overshadow his music, Barrio Fino stands tall as the definitive reggaeton album of its time. Boasting a pair of fantastic hits, “Gasolina” and “Lo Que Pasó, Pasó,” the album was a standard-bearer, influencing a legion of followers and establishing the production duo Luny Tunes as reggaeton’s hottest hitmakers. Barrio Fino was also the first reggaeton album to reach number one on the Top Latin Album chart, a position it held for roughly a year’s time while selling over a million copies in the United States alone.

Born Ramón Ayala (aka Raymond) on February 3, 1977, in Río Piedras, the largest district of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Daddy Yankee grew up in a musical family. His father was a bongosero (i.e., a salsa percussionist), his mother’s family included numerous musicians, and he himself sang from an early age, with a knack for improvisation. As Daddy Yankee grew older, he took an interest in Spanish-language hip-hop, especially the socially aware raps of Vico C, and he became increasingly drawn into the street life of his neighborhood, the Villa Kennedy housing project in San Juan. The “Yankee” moniker arose from the Puerto Rican slang for “someone tall, who is big in what he does” (according to a 2005 interview with Billboard magazine); “Big Daddy” is thus the rough English translation of Daddy Yankee. He got into reggaeton just as it was taking shape in the early ’90s, when San Juan DJs would spin hip-hop alongside dancehall reggae while vocalists would freestyle over the beats. This convergence of hip-hop, dancehall, and freestyling proved popular in San Juan, most notably at the Noise, a long-running club night that spawned a collective of DJs and rappers. Besides the Noise, the other key proprietor of proto-reggaeton was Playero, a mixtape DJ/producer with whom Daddy Yankee got his start, debuting as a featured guest on Playero 37 (1992). A few years later, at age 18, Daddy Yankee made his full-length album debut, No Mercy (1995), again working with Playero. Little came of No Mercy, however, and he continued to work the reggaeton underground for the remainder of the ’90s. Toward the end the decade, he began performing alongside Nicky Jam as a duo and had one of his songs, “Posición,” a collaboration with Alberto Stylee, featured on the 1998 One Tough Cop soundtrack.

Beginning in 2000, Daddy Yankee furthered his career significantly with independently released albums. El Cartel (2000) and El Cartel, Vol. 2 (2001) came first, each laden with featured guests in mixtape fashion; however, El Cangri.com (2002) was the one that really gave his career the boost it needed to break outside Puerto Rico. Driven by “Latigazo,” a single that found airplay in Miami and New York, El Cangri.com climbed all the way to number 43 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart despite no major-label backing whatsoever (released instead by VI Music, a Puerto Rican indie). In the wake of this success, Daddy Yankee assembled Los Homerun-es (2003), a Top Ten album comprised of odds and ends, including a newly recorded hit single, “Segurosqui,” as well as some old Playero tracks from a decade prior. Reggaeton was on the cusp of breaking big-time at this point; touchstone albums such as Don Omar’s The Last Don (2003), Tego Calderón’s El Abayarde (2003), and Luny Tunes’ Mas Flow (2003) were making significant impacts in Miami and New York, in addition to Puerto Rico, and a wave of lesser albums were being released also. The stage was well set for Daddy Yankee’s mainstream breakthrough, Barrio Fino (2004), which was released in July 2004 (by VI Music in conjunction with Universal Music Group Distribution) and debuted at number one on the Top Latin Albums chart. The first reggaeton album to reach the number one spot, Barrio Fino would dominate the top of the Latin albums chart for roughly a year’s time, lodged there well into 2005. It sold over a million copies in the U.S. alone during this chart reign.

 13882284_10154473199397490_7067697433757994254_n

The long shelf life of Barrio Fino was partly on account of “Gasolina,” a party-oriented single whose appeal was so phenomenal that the song itself became synonymous with reggaeton in the minds of many (and perhaps remains so), especially English-speakers who were unacquainted with the music style. The appeal of “Gasolina” was such that it’s been compared to “Macarena,” another Latin party song that broke through cultural boundaries to become a dance club staple internationally. It took “Gasolina” awhile to become a craze, several months after the release of Barrio Fino, in fact, yet by November 2004 it had broken into the Billboard Hot 100 and eventually made it all the way to number 32 a couple months later (a genuine Top 40 hit, albeit a novel one). On the Latin charts, though, “Gasolina” didn’t even break the Top Ten, only reaching number 17. Rather, “Lo Que Pasó, Pasó” was the album’s big hit on the Latin scene, charting at number two. Barrio Fino spawned a few other singles as well: “Sabor a Melao” (featuring salsa superstar Andy Montañez), “No Me Dejes Solo” (featuring Wisin & Yandel), and “Like You” (an English-language song). The success of the album was such that it catapulted Luny Tunes — an industrious duo who’d produced half the album, and all the key hits — to stardom of their own, as they became widely recognized as reggaeton undisputed go-to hitmakers. The success of the album also drew significant major-label attention. Machete Music, a Universal company specializing in Latin urban, signed a deal with Daddy Yankee to re-release Los Homerun-es in March 2005 (and later Barrio Fino in December 2006). Meanwhile, VI Music cashed in with Ahora le Toca al Cangri (2005), a live CD/DVD recorded in Puerto Rico in 2003.

13872801_10154469751347490_8296789650817045076_n

In 2005, while the major labels were courting Daddy Yankee, the president of Interscope, Jimmy Iovine, whose roster includes Eminem, 50 Cent, and Dr. Dre, actually flew down to Puerto Rico to discuss business in person. A joint venture deal resulted between Interscope and Daddy Yankee’s own label, El Cartel Records. The first release under this partnership was Barrio Fino en Directo (2005), a CD/DVD comprised of live in-concert and newly recorded material. “Rompe,” one of the newly recorded songs, was issued as the lead single and charted even better than “Gasolina” had, reaching number 24 on the Hot 100. Moreover, it spent 15 weeks atop the Hot Latin Tracks chart. The Interscope deal was only one of many struck by Daddy Yankee at this point. He began lending his name, image, and music to everything from footwear (Reebok) and soft drinks (Pepsi) to automobiles (Citroën) and radio (ABC); he founded his own charity, Corazón Guerrero, to help ex-convicts; and he teamed with CMN (Cardenas Marketing Network, an event marketing and sponsorship agency) to mount an international tour throughout North, Central, and South America. All the while, he worked intermittently on his next album, El Cartel: The Big Boss (2007), a big-budget affair bringing together an ensemble cast of marquee-name collaborators, including pop-rap hitmakers will.i.am, Akon, and Scott Storch. The buildup to the album was well planned and pervasive, with “Impacto” (and its bilingual remix featuring Fergie) released as the lead single well in advance of the eagerly anticipated June release date. Daddy Yankee then starred in a movie, Talento de Barrio, which broke attendance records in Puerto Rico and helped fuel sales of the film’s soundtrack, which Daddy Yankee performed with a host of guests. His 2010 effort Mundial featured less hip-hop and pop, more Latin flavors, and the hit single “Descontrol.” His sixth album Prestige followed in 2011, posting several singles high in the charts, including “Ven Conmigo” and “Lovumba.”

 In 2012, when El Cartel house producers Musicologo & Menes began issuing a series of collaboration albums titled Imperio Nazza, it was only natural that Yankee would appear at some point; he finally stepped up a year later with the King Daddy Edition. which also featured Divino, Yandel, Farruko, Arcángel, and J Alvarez. Its success sparked the planning of a second volume for 2015. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi

FARRUKO IN CONCERT NOVEMBER 13 TH,2015 IN COLISEO PUERTO RICO

IMG_4850

Farruko (born May 2, 1991) is the stage name of Carlos Efrén Reyes Rosado, a Puerto Rican Latin pop and reggaeton singer from Bayamón, Puerto Rico.

At the tender age of 16 Rosado had been singing and producing songs, and utilising the music and social media site MySpace to find an audience for his music. In 2007 Rosado released his first single “Sexo Fuera del Planeta” which before long gained the singer thousands of followers on numerous social media sites. Due to this online pubic appeal, Rosado became known to radio and music industry executives who utilised the singer’s talents on other artists’ records.

In 2009 came Rosado’s debut album “El Talento del Bloque” which became popular in a very short period of time largely due to the collaborative singles “Su Hija Me Gusta”, “Ella No Es Facil” and “Traime a Tu Amiga”. Shortly after came the highly popular single “Pa Romper la Discoteca” with Daddy Yankee and Yomo, which didn’t feature on the singer’s debut.

Three years later in 2012 Rosado returned with his sophomore release “TMPR” The Most Powerful Rookie”. The album had five hit singles including the first “Feel the Rhythm” and glorified Farruko’s reputation as a talented pop and reggaeton singer. The album was ultimately nominated for a Latin Grammy the same year. Rosado’s subsequent album “Farruka Presenta los Menores” (2014) featuring a host of collaborations, expands the musician’s genre appeal with fusions into electro, neo-soul and funk.

DON OMAR IN CONCERT NOVEMBER 15 th,2015 IN PICO RIVERA CALIFORNIA

12189615_10153649026720482_5187100932408176265_n

Don Omar is a singer and songwriter born on the 10th of February 1978 who hails from Santurce, Puerto Rico. Since his debut in 1999 he has become one of the most succesful reggaeton artists in the world, with several gold and platinum albums to his name.

  • Born William Omar Landrón Rivera, Omar was a musical child from the very beginning. Soaking up the sounds of Vico C among many others, to the extent that he left behind what could have been a promising career in the protestant church to take up singing full time. He hit the ground running after deciding to pursue a singing career, appearing on a variety of underground compilation CD’s before truly finding his feet as a backup singer for Latin Pop sensations Héctor and Tito. He hit it off with them to the extent that the duos very own Héctor Delgado produced Omar’s first album, 2003’s “The Last Don”, and his life changed dramatically.

    “The Last Don” was a pretty astonishing hit for a reggaeton artist releasing his debut album. It went on to sell 300’000 copies in Latin America and, to this day, has sold over four million copies all over the world. Don Omar had arrived with style, and he was only going up from there. His second album, the aptly titled “King Of Kings”, broke him in America by reaching number seven on the Billboard 200, at the time the highest charting Reggaeton album in history.

    Since then, Omar’s had absolutely nothing to prove, and it’s allowed him to release albums at whatever pace he’d like with whatever new talent he finds. He shows the same kind of adventurous spirit that Héctor and Tito showed when working with him, passing that kind of opportunity down to a new generation of artist. He’s an artist with one eye constantly on the future, and he’s a true talent for that reason. Highly recommended.
