RKM & Ken-Y, is a reggaeton duo formed in 2003 by José Nieves (RKM) and Kenny Vázquez (Ken-Y). The artists are renowned in the Latin music world for being the first to successfully fuse mainstream pop music with the reggaeton street rhythms of Puerto Rico and expose the style to a wide international audience.

Here are our picks for the top 20 Latin songs of the year. 20. Becky G & Natti Natasha, Sin pajama. The notion of two girls doing naughty things has been virtually non-existent in Latin music. Spanish pop star Alejandro Sanz returned three years after his last studio album with No tengo nada, a song that is spectacular in its simplicity. Remaining true to his gravelly talk-singing style and his everyman point of view, Sanz’s love ballad is a lesson in the power of humility. Reclaiming the rhythm of Puerto Rican bomba, and referencing the Latin American protest tradition and international urban genres, Odio recalls both the revisionist folk of Violeta Parra and Kate Tempest’s urgent spoken poetry. 10. Bad Bunny, Casper Magico, Darell, Nicky Jam, Nio Garcia, Ozuna, Te Boté. Te Boté was born while Hurricane Maria was passing through Puerto Rico.

The décima has its roots in 16th century Spain and represents the earliest examples of the combination of native rhythms and the lyrics and melodies from the mother country. Décima is derived from Andalusian ballads that came to Puerto Rico in the late 17th century. Décima (meaning tenth) usually consists of ten improvised lines of eight syllables each; the form quickly became popular among Jíbaros, or peasants.

Music of Puerto Rico. Music culture in Puerto Rico during the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries is poorly documented. Certainly it included Spanish church music, military band music, and diverse genres of dance music cultivated by the jíbaros (peasants, of mixed race) and enslaved Africans and their descendants. While these later never constituted more than 11% of the island's population, they contributed some of the island's most dynamic musical features becoming distinct indeed. In the 1950s, the dance-band ensemble of Rafael Cortijo and Ismael Rivera performed several original songs which they labelled as "bombas"; although these bore some similarities to the sicá style of bomba, in their rhythms and horn arrangements they also borrowed noticeably from the Cuban dance music which had long been popular in the island.
