This article examines how Ivy Queen deploys particular codes of masculinity and femininity in her music and performances. By drawing comparisons with other singers, I analyze what this deployment reveals about gender and its role in reggaetón, in music more generally, and in mass culture. I argue that Ivy Queen's particular engagement with gender opens up a space to interrogate gender norms and their relationship with power in the consumption of mass cultural forms.
