Aja’s ‘Brujería’ Is The Anthem For All Of The Brujas Who Are Just Living Their Best Life

This bruja anthem is everything queer Latinxs didn’t know we needed.

Aja left all “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestants gagging when she dragged Valentina during the season 9 reunion special. Between her and Farrah Moan, they did not let Valentina win the Miss Congeniality award without renaming it Fan Favorite. Now, a year after her season, Aja has given us a bruja anthem for the summer and it is banging. The lyrics will conjure up ideas of brujería and santería that you might have forgotten you possessed. The stand out queen from season 9 has made a name for himself in the hip hop music world and is definitely not slowing down. The music video takes through a bruja’s journey of self discovery as she learns her powers and owns her brujería. This self-discovery is something that Aja thinks all people can benefit from.

“I think anybody could be a witch, or a bruja. Like Yemaya, being witchy is a quality that can be channeled from within,” Aja told Paper Magazine. “Lyrically for “Brujería,” my goal was to combine witch references in the media with actual historic witch figures, like Marie Laveau. People often view Santería and brujería as some kind of dark art, but the practice of both are really quite beautiful. It was fun to try to connect my religion to mainstream examples of witchcraft like ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ and ‘Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.'”

Aja was adopted by Puerto Rican a family in New York when she was a young child and grew up around Puerto Rican culture. It is clear from her lyrics and music video shows how much her upbringing influenced her perception of Latinidad.

Fans are feeling Aja’s brujería taking over their bodies.

Like, same though.

They are even letting Aja control them from beyond.

That’s one way to get your fandom in your corner forever.

The fans have spoken and it is clear that this song is everything for them.

Get it, Aja!

People On The Internet Are Finding It Hard To Accept That This Is Fifth Harmony’s Final Performance Together

Earlier in March, Fifth Harmony announced that they would be taking a break and venturing off into their solo projects. However, out of respect to their fans, the girl group promised that they would finish performing at all of the remaining shows they had included in their tour dates.

It was this past Friday on May 11th that the band took stage together for the last time (that is until they re-unite as a group again). Even though they made it clear that this was only a temporary break, the pictures and messages they shared on social media made it seem like it was a goodbye for good.

Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei took to Twitter to express her love and gratitude for the women of this group.

💜 💔 💜

Similarly, Ally Brooke and Lauren Jaregui showed their love for their group members with a nostalgic picture post.

Looking at the pictures will make any fan emotional.

Side note: who else noticed that Camila Cabello is nowhere in their posts?

Even though it felt like a permanent goodbye, member Dinah Jane shed a bit of hope with the caption that she shared with her Twitter post.

But will there really be a “next time”?

In honor of their last show, Harmonizers took the time to reminisce on Fifth Harmony’s early “X-Factor” days.

Yassss. Those vocals!

Even though fans already knew that this final performance was coming, it was still a hard pill to swallow for most.

¡Quiere llorar! ¡Quiere llorar!

But despite these tears of sadness, people on the internet are showing their support for Fifth Harmony’s decision on taking a break.

Wishing the best of luck to these talented women. ✨

Overall, Harmonizers are grateful for the time they did have with Fifth Harmony.

This is where you say, “Don’t be sad that it ended. Be grateful that it happened.”

And Fifth Harmony is just as grateful for their loyal fans.

It is all love from the women of Fifth Harmony and their fans.
