Reggaeton has seen a boom in worldwide popularity over the last few years. At the close of 2021 Bad Bunny, a 27-year-old from Puerto Rico, was named as Spotifys most-streamed artist on the planet (for the second year running) with 9.1 billion plays, while amongst British audiences the genres success can be gauged by the fact that, in London, you can take your pick between reggaeton nights at mainstream nightclubs on any given weekend.  A vibrant, underground scene has been cultivating this music in London for the best part of two decades and, having now developed a bubbling young scene of homegrown Latinx artists, London isnt simply riding the wave that is making reggaeton the sound of global pop – its contributing to it.
