During the first years of the genre, which was born in the most marginalized and poor sectors of Puerto Rico with Caribbean influences and European electronic sounds, it was known as “underground”, since the theme of the songs always referred to sex and violence street
Despite the fact that the “underground” and later the reggaeton were hugely successful, they also provoked some social protest by the aggressiveness and sexual content of their lyrics, and even came to demand, with relative success, the withdrawal of certain discs from the stores.
Despite this limitation, the reguetoneros joined and changed the style of their songs so that people of all ages could accept them and continue highlighting the musical rhythm.EFE
