Despacito Writer Aims to Raise The Profile of Latin Women in Music

Erika Ender, the Panamanian singer-songwriter who co-authored the global hit Despacito, is aiming to be a spearhead for Latin women to advance within the music industry, according to a report by the Latin American Herald Tribune.

“I’ve reached unimaginable heights, but women are not on a par with men in the music industry,” she said. “There are very few of us, but we are doing a good job.”

Ender was inducted into the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2017, making her the youngest woman to ever be on the list. As a result, she has seen that women are underrepresented on Latin hit lists, and intends to change that with her new found fame.
