The Woman Behind ‘Despacito’ Breaks Down The Message In Its Lyrics

Victory for all Hispanic people … story of a seductive encounter! Lyrics full of poetry and metaphors! 🇵🇷

Repeating Islands


A report by Carolina Moreno for the Huffington Post.

Behind the record-breaking global hit that is “Despacito,” there’s an often unsung heroine.

When the single first began taking shape in Luis Fonsi’s mind nearly two years ago, the Puerto Rican artist called on singer-songwriter and long-time friend Erika Ender for help. The Latin Grammy-winning artist has collaborated with Fonsi multiple times in her 25-year career, but the day the two began to co-write “Despacito” in September 2015 was a game-changer for the both of them.

“We go to his studio and he tells me, ‘I have this idea of a song called ‘Despacito’ and he sings to me the first part of the song: ‘Despacito, vamos a hacerlo en una playa en Puerto Rico, hasta que las olas griten “Ay Bendito!”’ And we started laughing,” the 42-year-old Panamanian-born artist recalled in a phone interview with HuffPost. “Then we started…

From South America to a dance floor near you: looking at the rise of reggaeton

Good news!! Hispanics making a huge mark!! 🇵🇷

Repeating Islands


From Drake and Rihanna to Mohammad Assaf, everybody wants a taste of reggaeton music, we take a look at pop music’s latest trend–a report by Saeed Saeed from the UAE’s The National.

When Luis Fonsi began composing Despacito in 2015 the creative well was almost dry. The Puerto-Rican singer had not released any new material for two years and was itching to get back into the charts.

Then came Despacito. The song that has become this year’s most popular to date, was sketched in various forms including as a cumbia and a standard pop offering.

Intrigued by the chorus’s urban appeal, Fonsi decided more attitude was needed, so he asked reggaeton stalwart Daddy Yankee to get involved. Colombian producers Mauricio Rengifo and Andrés Torres then put their touches to the song, and when the duo heard the new, improved version of the track, it was ready to…

A picture says a thousand words …. “🇺🇸 This one, a cartoon, definitely screams, #52 …. McCain’s Prime Medical Coverage …. Paid by Taxpayers 🇺🇸 …. “!!

Let the cartoon speak for itself.

As of yesterday, when he cast a procedural vote, my respect for ‘The Maverick‘ has hit a new low.



If John McCain were uninsured, his surgery could have cost $76,000
That means that if McCain happened to be one of his uninsured or under-insured constituents, and not a Senator with his healthcare subsidized by American taxpayers, he might have had to shell out some $76,000 for his surgery – more than the average annual household income in America.

A picture says a thousand words …. “🇺🇸 This one, a cartoon, definitely screams, #51 …. Transgender Military Service Ban …. Vicious 🇺🇸 …. “!!


~~July 26, 2017~~ 


This sorry excuse of a human being has always been a heartless, empty shell who throws away his personal opportunity to occupy a space in this universe.

Thought I didn't need any other reason, this action solidifies it for me.

I was never in the military but I worked with the Veterans Administration for almost 28 years. I know what these guys go through.

No need to add more burden.

You are a worthless 'human' and you prove it daily!



Drumpf Kicks Transgender Persons Out Of The Military And Becomes The Most Despised President Ever

Drumpf announced on Wednesday morning, July 26, that transgender individuals would no longer be allowed to serve in the military. With one swoop, Drumpf went overwhelmingly against popular opinion and solidified his place as the most out of touch and despised president in history.

Trump’s move wasn’t about victory or the military.

It was all about throwing his slipping base a bone.

Drumpf is falling faster than a rock in the polls, so he is doing everything that he can to hold on to his declining base of support.
A majority of Americans oppose discriminatory laws such as bathroom bills towards transgender individuals. Drumpf’s move is a step backward for civil rights, and another effort to erase the progress and achievements of the Obama presidency.

The LGBTQ community warned that Drumpf would take this type of action if he won the election, and their warnings are being proven correct. Drumpf isn’t trying to make America great. He never intended to.

He is trying to undo progress and take America back to an uglier time.

It won’t work. Progress always wins in the end.

Breaking: Condemnation for Trump Banning Transgender Service Members

‘Pseudo-policy by Twitter’ won’t stand in this country!!
‘We the people’ will stand against this new ‘atrocity’!!


Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 1.18.57 PMCNN reports – Transgender people will not be allowed to serve. In a series of tweets, President Trump blocks transgender Americans from serving in the military.

OutServe-SLDN Comments on Trump Tweets Regarding Transgender Service Members:

(WASHINGTON) July 26, 2017 – OutServe-SLDN issued the following statement today, in response to Donald Trump’s tweetstorm on open military service by transgender individuals.

“In his latest example of pseudo-policy-by-twitter, Donald Trump has shown blatant disregard for transgender service members who have been serving openly since October 2016. The disruptive burden to the military comes from indecision in a White House which itself is not focused on victory if it’s targeting service members. The readiness, effectiveness, and lethality of the Armed Services comes from the commitment of our troops – not the vagaries and bigotry of exclusionary policies.

We are committed to transgender service members. We are going to fight for them as hard as…
