In a genre dominated by male artists, Ivy Queen has managed to break out as a major star in reggaeton music. Ivy Queen tells the story of this deep-voiced woman's rise to success and fame outside of her native Puerto Rico. Her songs tell the story of domestic abuse, single mothers, and other issues women can relate to. But these aren't "poor me" songs. Ivy uses these topics to show women how they can find the inner strength they need to overcome such situations. Hers is a music of empowerment.
In Ivy Queen, the author also provides a brief history on the birth and development of reggaeton and shows how it relates to reggae and hip-hop. Ivy Queen has been around since the beginning of reggaeton, and the history of it and of Ivy Queen are eternally intertwined.
