Reggaeton (also spelled Regueton or with an accent) is a Latin style of music. Reggaeton is Panamanian, but has grown to be more associated with "Boricuas" (Puerto Ricans), some claiming the genre as their own. It is characterized by a certain beat called "dem bow", which is a traditional Carribean beat but was first popularized by dancehall musician Shabba Ranks's song with a title of the same name. An example of the beat can be heard on that song or simply defined as A-A-B (or ch-ch-bass) or B-B-A (bass, bass, ch). Its influences include Hip hop, techno and Reggae dancehall, and touches of merengue, salsa, bachata, bolero and other Latin music can be featured. Unlike reggae, it does not use "riddims", instrumentals created by producers who can be used by any artists, most of the time, but exceptions can be made, such as Deejay Sasha and Ivy Queen's "Dat Sexy Body", which uses the Bookshelf Riddim originating from Reggae dancehall artist Beenie Man.

After Raggamuffin (dancehall) deejays from Panama including El General and Black Apache experimented with the same beat, they began "toasting" over it (a kind of Jamaican-style rapping which occurs when talking, rhyming, or singing is done over a beat) in Spanish. It further transformed with the likes of Don Chezina, Vico C, Las Guanabanas, DJ Blass, DJ Playero, and other Puerto ricans and Dominicans who discovered this then-emerging genre, and began rapping instead of toasting.

Singles from the next millenium broke Reggaeton into the mainstream music scene, such as Panamanian rapper Lorna's "Papi Chulo (Te Traigo el Mmm)" and half- Puerto Rican N.O.R.E. (also known Noreaga)'s "Oye Mi Canto" (featuring Nina sky, Daddy Yankee, and Gemstar and Big Mato).

Finally, Daddy Yankee's tremendously successful song "Gasolina" (written by Eddie Dee and produced by Luny Tunes) reached #1 in the United States Latin music charts, and then gained huge acclaim in Colombia, Mexico, Italy, France, the UK, and Germany.

At various stages, Reggaeton has been known as "Musica underground", "Dembow", "Spanish dancehall", or "Reggae en espanol", but was then finally known as its current name in the early 2000s.

Related genres similar to reggaeton include Salsaton, Merenhouse, Bachateo, and Bhangraton. Reggaeton is like, but not synonymous to, Latin rap. This is because Latin rap defines any rap recorded by artists of Hispanic or Spanish-speaking descent who rap in either Spanish, English or both, where reggaeton has specific influences and is mainly classified by the previously stated Dembow beat.

Today, Reggaeton has gained popularity and is being much experimented with throughout Latin America, especially in countries like Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic. Unfortunately, it is one of the most plagiarized genres in the music industry.

Some prominent reggaeton artists and producers or artists that have experimented with the genre (not listed in sequence of importance) include Daddy Yankee, Wisin and Yandel, Tego Calderon, Calle 13, Bimbo, Nicky Jam, Luny Tunes, Don Omar, Eliel, Pescozada, El Chombo, Ariel, Casper, DJ Playero, Don Miguelo, Kartier, Tony Dize, El Rubiote, Franco "El Gorilla", El Sensei, Rafy Mercenario, Rakim y Ken-y, Cheka, Yomo, Naldo, Lito y Polaco, Zion y Lennox, Voltio, Hector El Father, Tito El Bambino, Trebol Clan, Ingco Crew, Baby Rasta, Gringo, Arcangel, Tainy, Plan B, Alexis y Fido, John Eric, El General, Lorna, Killer Ranks, Wise, Big Boy, Eddie Dee, Angel y Khriz, Tony Dize, Johnny Prez, Fulanito, Gem star and Big Mato, Vico C, Ivy Queen, Tony Touch, Don Chezina, El General, D'Mingo, Heavy Clan, DJ Pollo, Magnate and Valentino, Baby Ranks, Sasha, Speedy, La Sista, and others.

The reggaeton is a RITTIM (not music as some cockfags call it) that was originally born in PANAMA, it's derivated from an african music called "raggamuffin".
when the panama channel was under construction, many puerto ricans who worked there heared the raggamuffin, when they got back to puerto rico they teached the raggamuffin to everyone, in the year 1982 the reggaeton was invented IN PANAMA, but it was never too succesfull, however some years later the puertoricans who were back from panama and had listened to reggaeton, stole it from there and mix it with raggamuffin, causing the reggaeton to "evolutionate" into what it is today: a poor "music" that have the same rittims in all the song (PUM PURUM PUM PUM).
and if you read some stupid people deffinitions, they will try to defend of this fact saying "all the latin music have the same rittim" THAT IS NOT TRUE!
just something that an idiot invented to defend his pseudo-music.
95% of the reggaeton lyrics speak about wild sex (it even endure and condone sex among people who havent even reached the 15 years), getting drunk, going to "partys" and all that shit, the other 5% is still stupid, but at least not only about sex, however it speak of inmature love relationships, or things like that, making it really stupid.
the reggaeton have an even dumper dance called "perreo", derivated from the wild dog sex, you can see a dog fucking another dog, next day you see the same dog fucking OTHER dog, so the word perreo is like a style to fuck the bitches one day without getting really commited with them.
perreo is just "having sex with clothes", it's not even deserved to be called a dance, and the worse part of this its that its just danced by fat and ugly bitches who know they will never get a dick inside they're pussys, and by rapers or guys who cant get close to the pretty girls.

reggaeton is the prove that humanity is decaying, since "Daddy yankee" is the god-father of a kid called "miguelito"
now "miguelito" is called "the heir of daddy yankee"
he's a 8 YEARS OLD KID, and in his first video (recorded when he was 7) called "MONTALA" (montala means "ride it" in spanish)
the song lyrics was just about this
"YA LLEGO MIGUELITO VEN Y MONTALA!" (miguelito's here, come and ride it!) singed by the 7 years old kid, in the video the kid is touching the ass of many horrible bitches dancing (most of them ditn even looked 18), so reggaeton is a corrupting music.

the "reggaetoneros" are just idiotic people, who dress like gangsters but are nothing but a bunch of possers, they say that the rockers and basically anyone who doesnt listen reggaeton or dislike it, it's because they are "jealous" that what tooked 60 years to the rock, reggaeton made it in five, and this is shit, because the rock becamed a world-wide phenomenum after 3 years of being created, reggaeton has 20 years old and it's not even world-wide yet!

the singers think that the only thing that matter's is the money and the way they dress, they dont sing to share a message, they do it to get money.
the reggaeton has repetitive lyrics, rittim, horrible singer voices and does not even uses instruments.
but fear not, because the reggaeton it's just another stupid fashion that will end from one day to the other, like the hippies or the 80's music.
"Einstein goes to a party, and he find's a guy, he starts a conversation with him

Einstein: greetings! can I know your IQ?

the guy answer him "400", so einstein began to talk about hidrology, sistem engineering and calculous.

Einstein find another guy

Einstein: greetings! can I know your IQ?

the guy answer's him "100"
they began to talk about biology, astrology and cartography.

he finds another guy and make him the same question, the guy answers "80" so they began to talk about politicians, world hunger and countrys.
he fins ANOTHER guy and make him the same question, as usual the guy answers "70" so they began to talk about sewers and cleanning.

and finally he find's a guy and ask him

Einstein:"Greetings! can I know your IQ?"

guy: MY I-what?

Einstein: Have you listened daddy yankee's latest album?

A whole genre of music that consists of one single beat, reggaeton is a first of its kind. Reggaeton is probably the only genre of "music" that contains "songs" that can only be distinguished from each other by the lyrics (when they can be understood). "Songs" consist mainly of the universal reggaeton beat, an angry puerto rican yelling about something, and an annoying air horn sound.

Note: This music genre will be short lived, so get as much as you can now. I predict that this fad will end in 4 - 5 months (which is not soon enough).
All of those $9.99 Reggaeton CD's that only people with no taste in music buy.

Reggaeton is a Puerto Rican mixture of dancehall and hip-hop. I really don't like it but girls like it since you can dance to it. They often play a little reggaeton on the radio Friday nights on the premier rap/r&b station around where I live. I can't understand what they say but it is most likely about girls and dancing.
Reggaeton is an overrated genre made that has recently gone more commercial. It has gotten to the point that NORE makes reggaeton songs and Lil' Jon has a reggaeton remix of "Gon' Do Shit" with Daddy Yankee.

I'm sorry for most of the confusion people have now a days, but reggaton didn't originate from Panama. When Boricuas first started singing Perreo or Dembow they called it reggaton because it was much easier to say and the word perreo sounded too street. Back in Panama, when the people heard this, they rebelled and said that Puerto Rico had taken their music, but really it was different. Panama just had a way different type of beat also called reggaeton. In conclusion, reggaton is just a name, not the beat of the music.
Panameno: "Hey, those Puerto Ricans stole our reggaeton!"
Boricua: "No we didn't that's perreo, we just named it reggaeton. It's not the same beat anyways."
Panameno: "Oh"
