With their distinctive reggaetón balladry and infectiously catchy songs, Rakim & Ken Y are the newest hit duo on the reggaetón scene. Once you hear the melodic voice of Ken Y on the hooks and Rakim's commanding lyrics, it is hard not to become hooked on their music. Winners of the El Draft 2005, an American Idol-esque competition that allowed fans to vote for their favorite reggaetón artist on the CD, Rakim & Ken Y have made chart topping hits of every single they have sent to radio. In less then two years they have transformed themselves into the two leading men of romantic reggaetón and have no intention of giving up their titles anytime soon. With the single "Dame Lo Que Quiero" and the chart-topping "Down," they have been able to create their own unique brand of reggaetón. Their first effort, Masterpiece, charted at Number Two on Billboard's Top Latin Albums, and sales of their work have been very consistent. With their catchy, romantic and edgy songs, Rakim & Ken Y are making sure they keep a permanent residency in the reggaetón genre.
