Don Omar (born William Omar Landrón Rivera; February 10, 1978 in Puerto Rico [1]), is a reggaeton singer, composer, actor and producer, and a Puerto Rican businessman.. He is believed to be one of the best reggaeton artists in Puerto Rico and all of Latin America by many music critics and fans alike. Omar is best known for his songs "Dile" and "Dale Don Dale" from his first album The Last Don and "Reggaeton Latino". His songs are mostly about life and love; some examples of these would be "La Recompenza" (The Reward) and "Aunque te Fuiste" (Even Though You Left Me).
