Brujas is a featured (Girl Power Academy) Music recommendation…

Frasqueri describes herself as having an alter ego collective named “Princess Nokia” In an interview with Bullet Magazine, she explains,

As Princess Nokia I can project the multi-dimensional aspects of myself that I could not express with the name Wavy Spice. I can venture into any realm of music or character of my choosing without confusion. I’m making worldly music—music that will talk to all kinds of people. Banjee girls in Harlem, teen brides in the Middle East, gay boys in East Asia. Labels no longer matter. My new music is cosmic and three-dimensional, and it will really speak of who Princess Nokia is. Princess Nokia is sound. It is progression. It is all that I am.

The Brujas “Princess Nokia” (music video) is being posted here for NO COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.

LYRICS:

I’m your supreme
I’m your supreme

[Verse 1:]
We is them ghetto witches
Speaking in tongue bitches
Fall on the floor
Got sage on the door [x4]

Talk shit, we can cast spells
Long weaves, long nails
Corn rows, pig tails
Baby fathers still in jail

Good witches, I fuck with
Bad bitches, we run shit
4 bitches, 4 corners
North, East, West, South shit

Good witches, I fuck with
Hopped off of my broomstick
Witchcraft, bitch craft
Black magic, it’s nothing

[Chorus:]
Orisha, my alter [x3]
Got coins on the counter

[Verse 2:]
I’m that Black a-Rican bruja straight out from the Yoruba
And my people come from Africa diaspora, Cuba

And you mix that Arawak, that original people
I’m that Black Native American, I vanquish all evil
I’m that Black a-Rican bruja straight out from the Yoruba
And my ancestors Nigerian, my grandmas was brujas

And I come from an island and it’s called Puerto Rico
And it’s one of the smallest but it got the most people

[Chorus:]
Orisha, my alter [x3]
Got coins on the counter
[x2]

Don’t you fuck with my energy [x8]

[Verse 3:]
Casting spells with my cousins
I’m the head of this coven
I’m a shapeshifting bitch, you don’t know who you loving
Better light you a candle
I heard the nighttime was black

And if you don’t watch your step the greatest bitch will be back
I cast a circle in white and I can vanquish your spite
And if you hex me with hate then I’ma conjour the light
Your evil ways put no fight

I ain’t no queen of the night
I’m a bruja, I’m a bruja, and I’ma dress in all white

I’m your supreme [x8]
