100 thoughts on “A New Medellin: How J Balvin and Medellin Pushed the Culture of Reggaeton | Complex News Presents

  1. Lo nacido como la SALSA Y EL REGGAETON fundado por los boricuas de NY y de PR se a convertido la música favorita de toda latino America . Que orgullo 🇵🇷🗽

  2. Not for nothing when Nicky Jam gave us that black carpet album after a long hiatus from making music I appreciate that project till this day!

  3. For the culture Latino gang where y'all at 🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻🇸🇻. Leave your flag deja tu bandera

  4. El epicentro sigue siendo San Juan lo lamento. Medellín no tiene artistas urbanos así, son todos pop los que suenan de alla. Nos inventamos el trap también acá, allá que trap hay.

  5. Wow llo apollo el latino y me gusta que el latino se una pero no se puede tapar el sielo con la mane el boricua es el cual por que todo esto existe lo que pasa es que no querian aseptarlo al prinsipio… tienen que darle el credito mas a puerto rico y ser realista es como la salsa es de cuba pero el bori la llevo mundial

  6. Please stop saying Medellin is the Capital Of Reggaeton. You can say that with Carolina, Puerto Rico the city where everything started

  7. Seriously cried of joy on how much their milestone was and how they enjoyed and had faith every step of the way! The last song needs to be recorded!!

  8. 5:44 lmaoo its been opened way before Mi Gente. Colombians been popping with Reggaeton since like 2013-14 internationally.

  9. Le falta muuuuuuucho sobre la música y la escena de Medellín, el hip hop es de calidad pura y no se ve ni un poco de el en esta reseña…

  10. Mi Gente is not Reggaeton, original is an Afrobeats track called "Voodoo Song" created by Willy Willaims. J balvin jumped on it and marketed it as Reggaeton. Most Modern Reggaeton songs are Afrobeats. Everyone trying to sound like Drakes and wizkids one dance. Latino's Hijacked Afrobeats from Nigerians.

  11. Complex have to go to puerto rico where reggaeton was born and talk to the people who really struggled to make this happend no one would support it in the bigginng that guy with the white sweat shirt is rong saying what hes saying be real and support the real ones that worked hard in the beggining for this be real and saying reggaeton artist were corny and repetitive and no style wow you deserve a slap in the face you a hippocrat

  12. Wrong again it is Black music ORIGINATED from Jamaica and Panama then Puerto Rico made it popular in the so called Latin American countries. Btw, we can't forget Amerikkka using Colombia to infiltrate against Venezuela. Colombia should be ashamed for letting Amerikkka into bullying and tricking them against their neighbouring country Venezuela.

  13. Seeing this after being at a J Balvin concert yesterday!! Gotta say proud of these guys for putting that latin style/vibe on the map! #latinogang

  14. Colombians are dreamers and they always keep their faith up 🙏🏽Regardless of their circumstances, we make the best out of any situation. It’s a whole different vibe out there. Love my people 🇨🇴💗

  15. Que caspa esa música y el trap! Me tienen hasta la coronilla. Y soy de Medellín.

    Even though I am from Medellín, I really dislike this obnoxious music and not just reggaeton but Latin trap. Fuck it.

  16. Los Boricuas lograron lo que querian desde los tiempo de vico C. Que nuestra musica dominara a el mundo y lo logramos y ahora nuestros hermanos Colombianos tambien estan poniendo nuestra musica en Alto y espero que todos los Latinos tambien lo logren Sea de donde sea ….. De parte de los padres del genero 🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷

  17. i remember when nicky jam used to sing his songs in manrique and you could find him eating in el diamante every saturday, the j balvin iconic hit when i was a child with obra de arte, when he used to rap with crudo means raw. que chimba saber que colombia y medallo es conocida a nivel mundial gracias a todos estos grandes artistas. la re buena pa todos. 👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻

  18. I wasn't born in medellin…but I grew in bello…and when I was 14 I moved to Boston,Massachusetts….Panama was big in those days….Puerto Ricans made international an colombian made it universal.
