A YouTube channel named "Shocking And-Upcoming" uploaded a video report stating that singer Ricky Martin, reportedly, died in a car crash on New Year's Day. However, this is an internet hoax. In the video, an officer is giving a press conference announcing the details about the car crash on a freeway.

The video was uploaded on YouTube on Jan. 3, 2015 with a description that Ricky Martin died at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time. At the time of writing this article, the video received 235,507 views.

"Multi-platinum artist Enrique Martin Morales, known by the stage name "Ricky Martin", died at 4:30 pm eastern time while driving his BMW CONVERTIBLE CAR on a freeway in Los Angeles, CA," the description of the video stated.

However, Ricky Martin is alive as his tweets from his official Twitter account kind of replied to the death hoax video report.

"Hello from #heaven," the singer tweeted the Instagram photo. The photo showcased a beach and later he shared another photo on Instagram in which he can be seen enjoying the sunset.

"#Sunset in #heaven," Martin captioned the Instagram photo. Click here to see the picture. The Latino singer's fans took to Twitter and Facebook to check if the singer is alive or dead.

Meanwhile, Ricky Martin is set release a new album in 2015. The Puerto Rican singer's new album titled "A Quien Quiera Escuchar" - "To Whoever Wants to Listen" will be released on Feb. 10, 2015.

"We're going to have a very interesting year full of music, partying and romantic times," Martin revealed (via Daily Mail).

This new album will be the singer's first album after the release of "Musica + Alma + Sexo" - "Music + Soul + Sex" in 2011. Last year in October, Martin released a single titled "Adios" from the upcoming album.
