Puerto Rican songwriter Tommy Torres's original "Pegadito" was a striking Latin pop ballad.  With the help of reggaetonero (eventually turned preacher) Hector "El Father", "Pegadito" became something even better: reggaeton with heart.  

Released on the down end of reggaeton's late 2000's heyday, "Pegadito (Remix)" is a classic for its incredibly unique synth production and soulful impact.  

A similar blend of danceability and feeling can be seen today in the work of Arizona moombahtonista Mendez.  Check out his rework of Brand New's "Jesus Christ" for evidence...
