Reggaeton:
Reggaeton is a music genre which has its roots in Latin and Caribbean music. Its sound derives from the Reggae en Español from Panama. The genre was invented, shaped and made known in Puerto Rico where it got its name; most of its current artists are also from Puerto Rico. After its mainstream exposure in 2004, it spread to North American, European, Asian and African audiences.
Reggaeton blends musical influences of Jamaican dancehall and Trinidadian soca with those of Latin America, such as salsa, bomba, Latin hip hop, and electronica. Vocals include rapping and singing, typically in Spanish. Lyrics tend to be derived from hip hop.
While it takes influences from hip hop and Jamaican dancehall, reggaeton is not precisely the Hispanic or Latin American version of either of these genres; reggaeton has its own specific beat and rhythm, whereas Latin hip hop is simply hip hop recorded by artists of Latino descent. The specific "riddim" that characterizes reggaeton is referred to as "Dem Bow". The name "Dem Bow" is taken from the dancehall song by Shabba Ranks that first popularized the beat in the early 1990s, and appears on his album Just Reality.

The origin of the word reggaeton comes from combining the English term reggae with the suffix -ón, used in the Spanish language to describe something big. It may thus be translated as "Big Reggae". The term was coined by Panamanian producer Michael Ellis in the late 1980s.
There is no consensus about the Spanish spelling of reggaeton. Spanish spellings include reggaeton, reggaetón and reguetón. Fundéu BBVA recommends the fully adapted form "reguetón" and states that if the spellings "reggaeton" or "reggaetón" are used in Spanish, they should appear in italics. In 2006, the Puerto Rican Academy of the Spanish Language proposed the form "reguetón" as the normal spelling, in order to simplify the creation of derivative words.

Reggaeton:
Reggaeton ist eine Musikrichtung, die sich aufbauend auf Reggae, Dancehall, Soca, Hip-Hop, Merengue Hip Hop, lateinamerikanischen Musikrichtungen und elektronischer Tanzmusik entwickelt hat.

Die Musikrichtung hat bereits eine über 20-jährige Geschichte, ihr gelang aber erst Anfang des 21. Jahrhunderts der internationale Durchbruch. In den USA bauten seit Ende der 1990er Jahre einige Majorlabel Beteiligungen an Plattenfirmen in Puerto Rico auf, um die Musik vertreiben zu können. Auch zahlreiche Kollaborationen zwischen puerto-ricanischen und US-amerikanischen Musikern, vor allem aus der Hip-Hop-Szene, trugen zur aktuellen Popularität des Musikstils bei.
