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."
