Ivy Queen's 2003 hit "Quiero Bailar" combined Reggaeton with Reggae when her producer Ivan Joy sampled Reggae's riddim Liquid produced by Jeremy Harding. The song became the first Spanish song to reach #1 on on Miami's WPOW Rhythmic Top 40, an American radio station based in Miami, Florida that did not usually play Spanish music.
