What began as a mix of cultures and a fusion of sounds, Latin hip-hop has evolved into other Latin sub-genres. It paved the way for today’s contemporary reggaetón, Latin trap, and more.
Bad Bunny is the perfect example of the genre’s evolution with his Latin trap-meets-reggaetón sound. He is also a testament to the genre’s staying power in the public ear. In the past three years, the rapper has consistently topped the charts and taken home a number of awards with 20 more nominations still pending for this year’s Billboard Latin Music Awards.
