Now, Everything You Need to Know About Reggaeton…
What do you think of when you hear boom-ch-boom-chick? Say it aloud a few times in a row and you’re actually making the signature beat of a popular type of music called Reggaeton. This style of music originated from Puerto Rico and started out being called Underground, because back in the early 1990’s it was mostly played at clubs and was not widely known. Reggaeton has many influences from all over Latin America and the world. The first part of the word Reggaeton, Reggae, refers to a style of music from Jamaica, but Reggaeton is also influenced by Spanish Reggae from Panama, Dancehall from Jamaica, Hip-Hop from New York, Salsa from Cuba, and Bomba also from Puerto Rico.
Once Reggaeton came out from underground and began to be played on the radio, some people thought that this music was inappropriate because the lyrics can contain controversial or violent themes. It’s important to understand that Reggaeton serves as a way for Puerto Rican youth to express their feelings about urban life and social problems like racism, poverty, and crime. Another unique aspect of this music is, unlike other “crossover” music that has become popular in non-Spanish speaking regions, Reggaeton continues to mostly be rapped or sung in Spanish. Currently, Reggaeton has become one of the most listened to music genres around the world and its popularity is still growing. Here are some of the most well known Reggaeton artists:
