Blending Jamaican dancehall, soca and Latin hip hop, reggaeton has grown in popularity since the beginning of the 2000s. Previously an underground sound that made its name in dance clubs, reggaeton artists are now some of the biggest and most popular names in pop music today. Reggaeton is one of the first predominantly Latin-fused genres to break into the mainstream in the U.S. What separates the best reggaeton artists from other pop artists is their ability to perform live. The top reggaeton artists know how to put on a dynamic live show that mixes their underground sensibility with the ability to write super catchy songs that rise to the charts. Thus, you'll find few reggaeton artists who are consider sellouts by their communities.

So, that said, what are the best reggaeton bands? For starters, any list or reggaeton artists has to include the likes of Daddy Yankee, Don Omar, Plan B, Tego Calderon and Ivy Queen. These are some of the biggest and brightest names in the genre and have become full-on superstars. If you aren't familiar with these artists, you likely know their songs.

Ultimately, it's up to you to determine who can be considered the best reggaeton artists. If you think someone is missing from this poll, feel free to add them. Vote or re-rank this according to how you feel it should look.

This list answers the questions "who are the best reggaeton bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest reggaeton musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular reggaeton bands that you might've heard of.
