Songwriters do not get enough credit for the amazing works they do for the music industry. Some musicians write and sing their own works while others enlist the services of super talented writers who have shaped the music industry from behind the scenes.

Some songwriters feature on the music they write; others remain non-performers. The influence of Black female songwriters has shaped the music industry. They continue to produce hit after hit.
