Goku de la Boca 83 Posted February 23 Share Posted February 23 What's your take on it? Did it explode in popularity in your country after Despacito? Obviously in Peru Spanish music is popular, it feels needless to say. More interestingly, reggaeton exploded in popularity in Canada after Despacito. It seems to be a fad as it does feel like it's beginning to fall slowly again, but a few artists like Maluma and J Balvin were both very popular. I know in the UK and Australia that Despacito was a one-off. In Canada though it became very popular after that, and it was mostly because us Latino's finally got a bit more attention and we started dominating the party, pretty much. With how many of us were about in the USA and Canada, it makes sense. Also a lot of the best artists in all 3 genre's come from The Bronx, especially the Puerto Ricans and Dominicans. So technically it's American music anyways. My take is that I ONLY ever listen to Spanish music. I have a few bands I still go back to in English, but all my music now is Bachata, Reggaeton, Cumbia, Merengue and Salsa. Even Argentine rock still gets the spotlight from me. Also, I just wanted to throw in that Bad Bunny IS the biggest star in the world right now, but that's only because of his massive popularity in the USA I think.
