"Detrás de Mi Ventana" (Behind My Window) is a Latin pop song by Mexican recording artist Yuri from her studio album Nueva Era (1993). The track was written by Guatemalan singer-songwriter Ricardo Arjona. It was released as the lead single in Latin America and the United States, peaking atop the Billboard 's Latin Songs chart, becoming the third number-one song in the chart for the singer and the first for Arjona as a songwriter.
Guatemalan singer-songwriter Ricardo Arjona received a proposal to join Sony Music in 1991, and before the release of his first studio album with the label, Del Otro Lado del Sol, Arjona wrote several songs to be recorded by other artists, such as the performers of the soundtrack for the Mexican telenovela Alcanzar una estrella: "La Mujer Que No Soñé" ("The Woman I Never Dreamed Of") by Eduardo Capetillo and the title track sung by Mariana Garza. Arjona was asked to write a song for Mexican singer Yuri to be included on her new album, produced by Alex Zepeda, and Arjona submitted "Detrás de Mi Ventana", a song about a failed love relationship between a bored housewife and an absent husband, which was later named a "ribetting ballad" by John Lannert of Billboard magazine.
