Is Reggaeton Just Rap in Spanish?

What is the difference between 'Reggaeton' and 'Latino Hip-Hop'?

There is definitely a sound that can easily be recognized as Reggaeton, namely rapping or singing over a den bow style track.

But the sound is changing by increasingly fusing elements of dance, electronica and pop.

Therefore what is Reggaeton?

To add to the confusion, all of the heavy hitters; Daddy Yankee, Tego Calderon, and Don Omar have many songs that are, what would be considered 'Latino Hip-Hop'.

Is Reggaeton just another way to say Latino Hip-Hop?

Wishing you continued success!
