reggaeton is not actually just Puerto Rico's version of reggae...if you do the research you'll find that reggaeton first came around in panama as "spanish reggae". It has evolved to become "perreo", "dembow", or just "reggaeton"

An aberration of rap and reggae, translated into vulgar Spanish. Sexually-oriented lyrics make Reggaeton extremely popular, but in the end, the people behind it have no talent, creativity, and NO SENSE OF RYTHIM.

A type of music mostly popular in the Latino countries as well as the U.S.A. Reggaeton is said to be "half rap;half reggae.

In my opinion, reggaeton is full of friggin lyrics exploiting women... yuck.

Contrary to popular beleif, reggaeton is NOT spanish reggae. It is spanish RAP with reggae/dancehall beats. Sometimes the rapping is spanglish, spanish with some english thrown in here and there.

This music style is growing in popularity with artits like Daddy Yankee (who is leading the genre right now), Noriega, Don Omar and Luny Toons.
Take a good listen to how a person in a reggae song speaks, then do the same to a reggaeton song, then a rap song. You'll find that a regaeton song has a reggae beat with rapping.

Popular reggaeton songs include:
-Gasolina
-Dale Don Dale
-Oye Mi Canto
-Rompe

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...
