Javiera Mena’s Pride Playlist Includes Queer & Feminist Anthems Like ‘Espada’ & More

In celebration of Pride month and the release of her new song “Corazón Astral,” Chilean singer-songwriter Javiera Mena shares exclusively with Billboard her ultimate Pride playlist.

The electro pop artist’s playlist includes songs like “This Woman’s Work” by Kate Bush, Buscabulla’s “Club Tú Y Yo” and her personal queer anthem, “Espada.”

But before you check out her Pride playlist below, watch the 3D animated video for “Corazón Astral,” created by Spanish director Tomás Aciego alongside Slurpty and Boldtron. In the video, two Javiera avatars face each other representing the duality of Geminis: eros in the cosmos.

“It is a journey to search for feminine pleasure and all its hidden corners,” Mena said about the song. “This an exploration of women around their sexuality which is always connected to the cosmos.”

“Corazón Astral” is the second preview of her upcoming album.

Javiera Mena’s Pride playlist:

Javiera Mena, “Flashback”

My recent single, in which I talk about the present and future, and travel in time. I can’t wait to play this song live!

Kim Petras, “Wrong Turn”

I love the lyrics – they have an open interpretation.

Cariño, “Excusas”

A very melancholic and pretty song.

Buscabulla, “Club Tú y Yo”

I really love this song and the entire album! One of my favorite albums of the year.

Kate Bush, “This Woman’s Work”

This is a pioneering song that talks about a bad experience during a childbirth.

Javiera Mena, “Espada” 

My QUEER anthem.
