After two years of being constantly on the road, it’s only now that singer-songwriter Yendry has been able to come up for air. Being on the go has meant not always having the time to reflect back on how far she’s come. But these days, the 29-year-old is working on remaining present and is grateful for all she’s accomplished thus far — making a name for herself as an artist with hit singles in a number of genres and collaborating with the likes of Damian Marley and J Balvin.

“I was recently creating a PDF of everything I did in the past two years, and I realized it was a lot,” Yendry tells POPSUGAR. “When you’re in it and you’re just working, sometimes it’s hard to just stop, breathe in, let in, and realize what you have achieved. I’m definitely feeling good — a little bit tired —but it’s a good tired.”

It’s clear that Yendry, who was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in Italy, is having a moment. And on Friday, May 19, she dropped her latest single, “La Puerta,” accompanied by the official music video. The song is her first ballad, and it’s inspired by the loss of her grandfather.

Indeed, prioritizing her own mental health has even inspired her mom to consider finding a therapist too, Yendry shares. “I’m just happy that at her age — she’s 50 — coming from a different generation and warming up to that,” she says. “I love that.”

Taking care of herself has allowed Yendry to be even more vulnerable and personal in her music, which is partly how “La Puerta” came together. After opening up one day in the studio to producer Fede Vindver, the song magically came together.

“We were taking a break, and Fede Vindver was playing some chords on the guitar, and it always happens like this . . . He’s like, ‘How do you feel right now?’ And I was like, ‘I would love to have a window or a door where I can just teleport myself somewhere and just give [my grandfather] a hug and then come back,'” she remembers. “And Fede goes, ‘OK,’ and starts writing the song.”

The two worked together all day to write the song’s lyrics after developing a ballad-like melody. Yendry was intentional about keeping the lyrics very open, so that it could be relatable to anyone who has experienced any kind of loss. “I cried when I recorded it. I never had to record the vocals again, because the first time we made it, that was it. The emotion was there. All those feelings were in those vocals,” she shares. “It was definitely a therapy session.”

Traveling has also allowed Yendry to express herself through fashion more — and she’s recently been receiving recognition for that. In the past year she has sat front row at numerous Fashion Week shows in New York, Milan, and Paris, with Kenzo, Acne Studios, and Balmain being just a few of them. And has managed to effortlessly fit in alongside recognizable celebs like Pharrell and Tyler the Creator. Yendry says she intentionally wears some of her favorite designers to red carpet events or award shows as a way to honor their work.

Part of Yendry’s signature style is also her long, gorgeous curly hair, which she cares for using mostly natural Dominican hair remedies. She says it’s difficult to travel with expensive products, so she instead turns to “natural stuff.”

“Sometimes instead of curl cream, I’ll just use coconut butter. It works, and sometimes, I’ll make a mask with avocados and a little bit of olive oil and just put it in,” she says. “Sometimes we think we have to spend money for it to be healthy, but in DR, you can just get avocados or papaya and we have good coconut oil and coconut butter. We’re the best at hair care.”

Yendry explains that her aunts have a salon in DR where they make their own products. “There’s an oil they used to make with rosemary oil, ginger, and cinnamon and now the whole rosemary thing went viral on TikTok, but I’ve been using it for years because they make it,” she explains, adding that she even sees herself eventually starting her own natural and sustainable curly hair line.

In everything she does, Yendry is extremely proud to be representing the Dominican community — and she wants to collaborate with more Dominican artists in the future. On August 12, she’s scheduled to perform at the Orgullo Dominicano event at Summerstage in Central Park with fellow Dominican artists Prince Royce and Vicente García.

“I’m kind of old school, so I would love to work with Juan Luis Guerra. We can make something cool that’s modern and old school,” she says. “I feel like there’s a new wave of Dominican artists. There’s something going on there.”

Yendry herself is undeniably part of that new wave, and in large part, because she always thinks about representation. She remembers back to her 2020 single, “Nena – A Colors Show” and the significance of wearing her curls in the music video.

“I did not expect people to feel represented by me because I was wearing my curls or because I was wearing something different. It’s just a consequence of [what happens] when you do things you believe in with intention,” she says. “I really take this seriously. The fact that I’m still listening to Ella Fitzgerald’s music even if she’s not here, that’s crazy to me. This means that when I leave, my music is going to stay and that’s why I take it so seriously . . . I’m just putting a part of myself into the world and putting it here in case I leave earlier than expected.”

Lyrics

Sigo tratando y no lo consigo
Un recuerdo no se borra
Así na’ más
Y meno si es contigo
Y sigo, le digo que estoy bien a mis amigos
Cuando tengo una buena semana
Llega el domingo
Y es como si vuelve a empezar
Dime adonde se va el tiempo que se pierde
Y los besos que un día te deje de dar
Me arrepiento es poco
La sangre me hierve
Porque ahora que te fuiste se que pude hacer más

A veces pienso
Si una foto farera mas que un recuerdo
Como una puerta que se puede abrir
Entrar por un abrazo y salir, calvez así
No me dolería
Como me duele cada día
Porque sin ti podría sobrevivir
Pero no vivir

Y quien me va a quitar el frio
Dime Dios mío
Como se quita este vacío
Este vicio de esperar siempre tu llamadas
Y de imaginar que tu eres en la almohada
Mirando en un cajón encuentro tu ropa
Y la película que siempre quisimos ver
El rompecabezas que te di de regalo
Que por faltas de tiempo dejamos de hacer
Dime adonde se va el tiempo que se pierde
Y los besos que un día te deje de dar
Me arrepiento es poco
La sangre me hierve
Porque ahora que te fuiste se que pude hacer más

A veces pienso
Si una foto farera mas que un recuerdo
Como una puerta que se puede abrir
Entrar por un abrazo y salir, calvez así
No me dolería
Como me duele cada día
Porque sin ti podría sobrevivir
Pero no vivir
