Latin hip hop, Reggaeton: The Kings of the first Reggaeton Generation
Topic: Hip hop Music

Long before Don Omar, Daddy Yankee and Tego Calderon, lived Bob Marley who brought us the Reggae beat from the streets of his Kingston home. These days, young artists hailed from Puerto Rico are pushing the envelope. There is no doubt that Don Omar, Daddy Yankee and Tego Calderon are some of the most successful artists of the new genre.

What is Reggaeton?

It fuses everything from hip hop, salsa, dancehall to rock, samba, bomba and guaguanco. It is highly influenced by the American R&B and Soul. In some of the songs, the speak over may remind you of the Gospel influences. Tego Calderon says that Reggaeton needs this kind of musical promiscuity to have a true staying power.

These artists use English and Spanish to reach out to their audience. There is a huge U.S. market ready to absorb anything new. Tego's album, The Underdog/El Subestimado shows exactly what the new genre is all about. It remains very appealing to the young group which marketers want to attract so much. All of these new artists want new control. They do not want any label company to have all rights.

Just like Univision, the Latin Music industry can only grow. Hispanics are loyal to their music, telenovelas and culture. For them, the family is very important.

What are some of the images that come to your mind as you listen to a Reggaeton song?


DADDY YANKEE LYRICS

"Lo Que Paso, Paso"
Ah ah dale mambo (entre tu y yo)
Dale mambo (daddy)
Son cosas que pasan en el barrio fino.
Esa noche contigo la pase bien
Pero yo me entere que te debes a alguien
Y tu fallaste pero ya es tarde
Y tu fallaste pero ya es tarde

Lo que paso, paso entre tu y yo [x4]

Es una asesina ella conlleva la medicina
Enganadora que te envuelve y te domina
Una abusadora ella como sabe te devora
Y si no tienes experiencia te enamora
Una especialista para q te ponga ella a la vista
Balas hechizeras un nombre en su lista
Q si es maliciosa yo q la trate como una diosa
Me engano y ahora me llama como loca

Presea dale presea si ya no estamos juntos otra
mujer me janguea
Presea dale presea que pocos son los indios y hay
mucha india en la aldea sabes
Presea dale presea no dejes pa manana no dejes
que te lo lleva
Presea dale presea ahora estas celosa porque otra
me desea ya

Esa noche contigo la pase bien
Pero yo me entere que te debes a alguien
Y tu fallaste pero ya es tarde
Y tu fallaste pero ya es tarde
Lo que paso, paso entre tu y yo [x4]

Presea dale presea si ya no estamos juntos otra
mujer me janguea
Presea dale presea que pocos son los indios y hay
mucha india en la aldea sabes
Presea dale presea no dejes pa manana no dejes
que te lo lleva
Presea dale presea ahora estas celosa porque otra
me desea ya

(dile) yo soy soltero ma y tu preseas
Yo saco otra a bailar y tu preseas
Tu comes en too laos y me preseas
Si tienes dueno ma por que preseas

(vamos a dejar esto claro ya ok)

Lo que paso, paso entre tu y yo [x4]

Ah ah dale mambo [x2]
Luny tunes
Son cosas que pasan en el barrio fino
