The latest music genre that has swept the music lovers off their feet is the Latin urban sound of Reggae / Reggaeton. While different forms of Latin music have been continuously ruling the charts and hearts of listeners such as mambo, salsa and meringue; the journey of Reggaeton from the streets of Puerto Rico to radios and charts all over America is quite an event within the music industry.
First thing first, Reggaeton is not at all a traditional Latin sound. It is rather an urban sort of music genre that combines different musical elements from different regions. It takes the sounds of reggae and dancehall from West-Indian music and incorporates them with Latin American sounds of salsa, Latin pop, bomba, merengue, cumbia, plena and bachata. Adding a dash of urban flavor to it are contemporary sounds of hip hop, R&B and electronica. All this combine to form the base for Reggaeton that primarily attracts because of its upbeat appeal and mixture of different tunes.
Mostly referred to as sound of the youth and club friendly music, Reggaeton enjoys a huge following in United States and beyond. The combination of Puerto Rican and urban hip-hop music has made Reggaeton a craze in the United States and many artists and label are piggybacking on its rising popularity. However, for a concerned music lover, it is important to follow the historic traces of this trendy yet deep-rooted sound.
Reggaeton derives its name from the reggae music of Jamaica. It was originated in Panama as Spanish reggae in the late 1970's and got its present form in Puerto Rico in 1980's. Soon it emerged as the most popular genre of dance music in the region. Later, in the early 1990's, it took benefit of the hip-hop craze in the United States and expanded its listener base among the Latin American youth.
The mainstream exposure for Reggaeton music came in 2004 when considerable airtime helped it to reach to North America, Europe and Asia. While the Latino communities in the United States understood the specifications about the beat and rhythm of this music, casual music lovers loved the sound in totality and it became the most preferred sound of American youngsters after hip-hop music.
Back to present and we have Reggaeton as a commercially viable music genre that the whole America is dancing to. Not only America, the music has found a good place in global popular culture for years to come. Artists like Daddy Yankee, Luny Tunes, Tego Calderon, Don Chezina, Queen Ivy and others are the rock stars of the reggae world. Others like Wisin y Yandel, Bob Marley, Don Omar, Nejo & Dalmata, Angel y Khriz, Jowell y Randy and La Factoria have also contributed a lot in the development of this Latin sound.
