Reggaeton the music of Panama, Latin America and Puerto Rico. Started in the 1970's in Panama but was adopted by Puerto Rico in the early 1990's.
This genre started out as the Spanish version of Reggae and Danchell music which originated out of Jamaica in the 1980's.
The Panamanian people was the first to discovery this genre of music but in the 1990's the Puertorican adopted the music and gave it the name.
This has now covered all genre of music from dancehall, reggae, hip hop, Latin Pop and Merengue among others. This music is easily identify by its unique beat.
The beat is said to have been taken from the hit single "Dem Bow" by Shabba Ranks which was released in the early 1990's.
