Reggaeton

Reggaeton is a matter of controversy for women all over Latin America.

Usually its lyrics are about how women are a bunch of whores that just want to get laid (by men is understood), but from time to time, you find some reggaeton that maybe is not that obvious...

For example : "Atrevete-te" from Calle 13 a group from Puerto Rico

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLHuDDdo-90

The lyrics say something like :

Atrevete-te-te-te (Come on, dare !)
salte del closet (come out of the closet)
destapate (take your clothes off)
sacate el esmalte (take the polish off)
dejarte de taparte (stop hiding)
que nadie va a retratarte (no one is gonna take a pic)
levantate ponte hyper (get up, get hyper)
prendete (get on fire)
sacale chispas al estarter (make the starter sparkle)
prendete en fuego (get on fire on fire :P)
como un arte (i'm not sure of this line)
sacudete el cinturon como si fuera un whiper (shake the belt like it was a whiper)
que tu eres callejera streetfighter ('coz you are a street girl streetfighter)

so... it's ambiguous no ?

As for me, I say, if it's good dancing music, the kind that makes you just wanna get on the dance floor and shake your ass, I don't give a damn about the lyrics.

For example :

Gasolina from Daddy Yankee, Puerto Rico too

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCUO_ApQccs

The songs basically says "A ella le gusta la Gasolina, Dame mas Gasolina, Como le encanta la Gasolina, Dame mas Gasolina" (She likes Fuel, give me more Fuel, how she loves Fuel, give more Fuel), and of course, fuel is... :P

I just LOOOOVE that song to dance !
