Anaconda, Billboard, and Justin Bieber: GETTY IMAGES 1C LAYBYMIC VESP RID The woman behind the No. 1 hit song, “Despacito" We’ve all heard Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” remixed with Justin Bieber, but not many know there was a woman (there usually is) behind this hit song. @ErikaEnder, a Panamanian-born Latin Grammy winner, is the first female songwriter to reach No.1 on Billboard’s Top 100 with a Spanish-language song, she said in an interview with @HuffPo. “As a woman, I’m so happy because we are like 20 men to one woman in the entertainment industry,” she said. “The fact that you can ― with hard work, with values, with talent ― get to that top 100 is amazing and it’s a responsibility.” She told the site responsibility was at the foundation of her writing process, making sure the song was respectful to women. “I told [Luis Fonsi], ‘This has to be sensual but let’s do it in a classy way — very smart and clever, so that women have their spot as the human art that we are,’” Ender said. “It’s not about the genre, it’s about the message. We have a responsibility as artists and as composers because we are impacting the new generation. Whatever we write and whatever we sing is building up a new generation, it’s making the soundtrack of everyone else’s life.” According to the Associated Press, “Despacito” has officially become the most streamed song of all time, and according to Forbes, is the third Spanish song in history to reach No. 1 on Billboard’s charts. The last one was in 1996, with “Macarena.” Thank you for being such a positive representation for Latinas, Erika ✊🏽👑
