A reggaeton original is headed to Tampa’s Yuengling Center. Today, Maxima 92.5-FM announced that Grammy-winning superstar Don Omar would be part of its annual Fiesta Maxima.

This year’s party happens at the University of South Florida on May 5, and tickets ($25-$201.75) officially go on sale as Sunday, March 3 becomes Monday, March 4 via Ticketmaster. Fans of the radio station can take advantage of a pre-sale, however, by heading to and using the code “FIESTA” from right now until March 3 at midnight.

Critics have tried to ding the 41-year-old Boriqua for lyrics about sex, violence and drugs, but let’s be honest: Anyone reading this probably doesn’t know enough Spanish to keep them from trying to dance to the tunes.

“This is an incredible win for Tampa Bay Hispanics,” 92.5-FM Program Director Nio Fernandez said in a release. “When you couple a world renowned artist such as Don Omar with one of the most festive days of the year in ‘Cinco De Mayo’, the result is a spicy celebration that can only be realized at Fiesta MAX!MA!”
