This rapper duet owes its name to a street where they grew up, "calle 13" or the 13th street. These two define themselves and their style as something fluent, something that has a different sound. Their music is a combination of reggaeton with other rhythms, like bachata.
Calle 13 is Eduardo and Rene. These two have found their niche in the music world, or in the reggaeton world, to be more precise, through the success of their song "¡Atrévete Te, Te!" in their first production of the "Calle 13" album in 2005.
