List of Best Colombian Trap Artists & Reggaeton Artists

With the global rise of Latin music, more specifically urban Latin music, in which is often referred as urbano music, Colombian reggaeton artists have risen to the top of the charts and moved up the ranks as some of Latin America’s number one urban artists.

The home of the legendary singer Shakira, famous actors and actresses Sofia Vergara and John Leguizamo, globally renowned football (soccer) players, and the world’s former most famous narcotics trafficker of Pablo Escobar, but today the light shines on Colombian reggaeton artists. Despite consisting of numerous of genres, varying from region to region, like cumbia and vallenato, the reggaeton and trap music scene of Colombia has arguably became number one.

While Puerto Rico was the pioneer and is still the leader of reggaeton and trap music, Colombian trap artists have been building their own successful music scene in South America. Some of the first emerging Colombian reggaeton artists were the likes of J Balvin, Farina, Wolfine, Karol G, and Yelsid during the 2000s, which was greatly followed by the likes of Maluma, Feid, Kevin Roldan, and Andy Rivera during the 2010s.

As mentioned, Colombia is a country that is rich in its local culture of music, popular forms of music like cumbia producing legends like La Sonora Dinamita, Pastor López, and Rodolfo Aicardi, while other forms of music have a deep history of indigenous and African roots. A new mark in the history of Colombia music has been the international stardom of several top Colombian reggaeton artists, with a long enough reach that stretches from Latin America to the United States to Europe.

Beginning his career during the mid-2000s, J Balvin has surfaced as one of the world’s most popular artists. The accumulation of awards and accolades, along with off the chart sales, J Balvin has commercially reached an amount of success only few Latin artists have ever obtained. Right behind J Balvin’s impact in Latin music has been Karol G and Maluma. With Karol G being in the public’s view since a teenager, the beauty of her growth in music has been on displayed since her earliest releases of songs like “En La Playa” to now with an extensive list of hits like “Tusa,” “Bichota,” “Culpable,” “El Makinon,” and “Provenza.”

The triple threat of J Balvin, Karol G, and Maluma, whose distinctive talent has propelled his music to crossover through various fanbases of Latin music, has now given Colombian trap and reggaeton artists the opportunity to be in the conversation for the world’s top Latin urban music singers and performers.

From freshman and sophmore artists like MTZ (Manuel Turizo), Blessd, and Ryan Castro  to the veteran icons of Feid, Farina, Kevin Roldan, Reykon, and Andy Rivera reaching the stars and leaving a trail of unthinkable success in Latin music, while also setting the standards and blueprint for urban music in South America, Colombian reggaeton artists have transformed the genre into a global sensation.
