Daddy Yankee was released from a hospital Monday after suffering from a viral infection and dehydration.

He was ordered by his doctor at Baptist Hospital to rest for at least a week, the 31-year-old reggaeton singer's publicist said in a statement.

"Now I'm going home to rest a while," Daddy Yankee said.

He was hospitalized early Friday.

Daddy Yankee has postponed a promotional tour for his new album, "El Cartel: The Big Boss," released by El Cartel Records/Interscope.

Reggaeton is a mix of reggae, rap and Latin music styles.
