The best genre there is!
Just the basics
The music type I chose is Reggaeton. This music is most commonly listened to in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. People that are often found to be involved with this type of music is Fat Joe who was one of the first big names and PitBull who is probably the most well known Reggaeton singers.
This music first became popular around the same time that spanish reggae and hip hop came to Puerto Rico This music was created when reggae and hip hop were combined. This main stream exposure happened in 2004 when this music spread to North America and European countries. Latin dance music and electronic music had large effects on the genre through out the years.
The music today
All different types of people listen and enjoy this type of music although it is most popular in spanish speaking country. This music is still becoming popular, many people believe that this music will only get bigger over time
