This is part of our series, The Best of the Best Music of 2017.

2017 was a breakthrough year for Latin music in the USA, with "Despacito" leading the way as one of the most played songs on radio.  For nearly the entire year, it seemed like you couldn't go anywhere without hearing the tune.  Few can deny, there is something about the reggaeton beat that is a perfect fit for a dance party — or almost any other kind of party.
