Decoding “Despacito:” An Oral History Of Latin Music by Leila Cobo released
Decoding “Despacito,” tracks the stories behind the biggest Latin hits of the past fifty years and is reported on and written by Leila Cobo, Billboard’s V.P. of Latin Music and the world’s ultimate authority on popular Latin music. From the Salsa born and bred in the streets of New York City, to Puerto Rican Reggaetón and bilingual chart-toppers, this rich oral history is a veritable treasure trove of never-before heard anecdotes and insight from a who’s who of Latin music artists, executives, observers, and players. Their stories, told in their own words, take you inside the hits, to the inner sanctum of the creative minds behind the tracks that have defined eras and become hallmarks of history. The book is out March 2nd and has already received positive feedback with the Kirkus Review stating it is “an entertaining oral history of the songs that put Latin culture on the map.”
