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.
