The Little Girl From Bomba Estereo’s “Soy Yo” Video Has Bomb Life Advice: Be Yourself

Definition of a (s)hero.

Fusion recently profiled Sarai Isaura Gonzalez, the 11-year-old star of “Soy Yo,” Bomba Estereo’s latest music video. The young Latina became an internet sensation because of her unforgettable and confident performance and so, naturally, the news organization asked her to dish out some life advice to their viewers. She did not disappoint.

“It doesn’t matter what other people think about where you come from or how you look, it just matters what you think about yourself,” the wise-beyond-her-years girl said.

And while this might seem like pretty obvious advice, it’s actually much easier said than done. This little girl has figured out something that took us 20-some years to learn ourselves.

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!

This Is What A Music Video Without Music Sounds Like. Prepare To Cringe.

The two components that really piece together a music video is: 1. The music of course and 2. The visual footage that is combined with the music. But what if there was a music video without the music? Well, it’s awkward, weird, ridiculous, and overall funny AF. The YouTube channel Without Music is doing just that and they are nailing it. Here are just a few examples of their work:

1. “Finesse” by Bruno Mars ft. Cardi B


This completely changes the vibe of the music video.?

2. “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars


Without the music audio, this music video ain’t fly at all and it’s hard to do that to Bruno Mars. LOL

3. “Havana” by Camila Cabello


The sound of that man sniffing her at the beginning is soooo cringy.

4. “Fetish” by Selena Gomez


That burp at the end though! As if the sounds of her mouth weren’t enough. I can’t. Lol

5. “Hands to Myself” by Selena Gomez


Skip to 1:10 and thank me later.

6. “Sorry Not Sorry” by Demi Lovato


This video is a hot mess without the music playing.

7. “Booty” by Jennifer Lopez ft. Iggy Azalea


This is so weiiiiird! Nothing but booty smacking sound effects.

8. “Aint Your Mama” by Jennifer Lopez


Omg the beginning where she farts. ?

9. “Pity Party” by Melanie Martinez


Cringing x10.

10. “Buttons” by The Pussycat Dolls


The squeaking sound of their hands rubbing against the surface of the tunnel has me dying. ?
