David, a blogger in Xiamen, China, shares his discovery of reggaeton and Daddy Yankee:
I just know this kind of music a few days ago…. I know this kind of music from a song of Daddy Yankee.The song is ” Gasolina”.I knew this song in Park Latin.The DJ there always play this song.And everyone in the bar like the song….During the Lunar New Year,when I was at my hometown,I downloaded some songs of him in my Mp3 player.And I fond that his songs are quite great!!!Even the songs are not in English!They are in Spanish.I have no idear about Spanish.But “Its infectious, driving rhythms and the sexy bump-and-grind dancing that it inspires” make me fell in love with his music,such as Gasolina,Lo.Que.Paso,etc.
And from a later post,
The first time I heard the song Gasolina,I was attracted.It was absolutely new to my mind.It’s just like a stranger is knocking your door.When you open it,you find she’s a beautiful girl or a hansome boy.Most reggaeton songs are in spanish.But it also can be very popular in non-spanish countries.That’s means what attract the audience is not the lyric,but the rhythm,”the rhythm that can make your hips move”,like someone says.
