Outsourced Bloggery #53539: Reggaeton Contemporáneo

From my Trinidadian spy bredrin inna PR —

Marshall to the Wayne,

Que hay, brother? (said in a boricua accent…loved how these chaps drop the ‘brother’ in spanglish)

I don’t know if it’s just me, but reggaeton game is jus getting jiggier, and a lot of today’s hits have influences from southern bounce (tamo a lo loco) to electronica (‘sexy movimiento’)…am sending you the names and youtube links (most are the videos) of some of the current big tunes…LOVE de voltio, dred…de man flow on dat jus wicked for days. Otherwise, went to Festival de Claridad (heard of it?) and Calle 13 and Tego both performed…mash up de place.

– Pa’que la pases bien (Arcangel):

– Tengo tantas ganas de ti (Arcangel):

– Sexy movimiento (Wisin y Yandel):

– Anoche son contigo (Wisin y Yandel):

– Donde estas el amor (Wisin y Yandel):

– Tamo a lo loco (Voltio):

    Wow, that’s a brilliant one! And possibly the trendiest of the lot – do you think that’s a real sid station or are they sampling something?
