The Truth has been documented here:
Reggaeton blends reggae and dancehall with Latin as well as hip hop beats and originated in Panama. Puerto Rico is more popular because they're part of the US Market.
Yes reggaeton is dying in the U.S. because Reggaeton artists are 99.9% Puerto Ricans and they dont want to give a piece of the pie, in other words they are greedy and they just stick to themselves. For example some Reggaeton artists include (daddy Yankee, Wisin y Yandel, Jowel y Randy, Zion y Lennox, all PUERTO RICANS) they are only a few of main ones and they are greedy they dont want to help new…
Reggaeton is a mixture of Latin and Caribbean sounds to create a wonderful genre of music. It is said to have begun around the 1960s-70s in places like Jamaica, Puerto Rico, and Panama.
