There are tons of clubs in Tokyo that play hip-hop, R&B, reggae and reggaeton. While most hip-hop clubs with mix reggaeton into the regular music mix, the clubs also have special nights where the music is only reggae and/or reggaeton.

Reggaeton in Japan 2006/6/3 03:36
Hi, I usually go to Japanese clubs. Reggaeton is pretty popular in Japan. Gasolina is pretty universal. There's a new song called "meteme el bicho" and "repartiendo bicho" that are really popular in Japan. Anyone familiar with these songs?

I also know some... 2007/11/23 08:48
Yeah, I've heard lately to new hits like: "yo soy el perro y tu mi perra", "quiero meterselo a todas" and "siempre estoy cachondo". I was wondering for its meaning in english. It sounds pretty cool in spanish, but I don't know what I am singing.
Anyway, yes you can hear reggaton in Japan, that is for sure!

The titles to the songs you've mention are all sexually explicit in spanish.
"yo soy el perro y tu mi perra" means "i'm the pimp and you're my bit**", "quiero meterselo a todas" is something like "i want to fu** every girl" and "estoy cachondo" means "i'm hot".
Reggaeton songs are mostly about sex, i hope that helped.

You could ask next time to someone at the salsa bar. I used to go also to salsa bars in the past and there where some people crazy about reggeton and went they to some specific clubs somewhere else (not roppongi). I hope that helps.
To Fledermaus: Thanks for the translation!

Reggeaton 2007/12/4 14:57
um i think the guys mentioning songs above, where joking with each other,i live in puerto rico and i am planning a trip to japan,i can tell you those are not song titles,there just random vulgarities. Reggeaton is like hip hop to sing about sex,women,fighting,drugs,weapons,cars etc its mostly party music talking about how a girl and guy should dance and party together to have the best time, there's a couple of really funny ones,but there none of the above heheheh i almost passed out laughing when i read what they wrote.
