Typical music from Puerto Rico and Central America. An urban mix of hip-hop, rap and reggae-dance. Born in the early '90s called "Underground". Back then, it had a more tropical beat, hence the 'reggae' part of the name.
During it's origin, Reggaeton was often banned from the radio and the music was distributed under the table because most of the songs' lyrics were relationed to sex, drugs and violence.
It has now evolutioned into a genuine genre, and is at its peak.
Among some of the pioneer artists are:
Vico C, The Noise, Las Guanabanas, Las Gargolas, DJ Playero, Alberto Stylee, Big Boy.
Some of today's most famous reggaeton artists include:
Daddy Yankee, Don Omar, Tego Calderon, Ivy Queen, Calle 13, Eddie Dee, Tito "El Bambino", Hector "El Father", Wisin & Yandel, Zion, Lenox, Nicky Jam, many, many more...
