In a move destined to be met by a chorus of “YASS” and cure your post-Pride depression, Argentine reggaeton diva Ms Nina’s newest single features vocals by her current ride or die, makeup guru King Jedet. Released the same day that Nina and La Favi performed in Madrid’s Plaza de España to capacity crowds as part of the World Pride festival, “Reinas” is the summer jam for you and your gender inclusive girl gang. Lyrics lay down an invite to gozar, in addition to giving helpful suggestions to the retrograde haters whose insults are just making you giggle at this point.
“Venga baila con nosotras/Si no te gusto, pa’ que molestas?/Todas somos reinas/En secreto está la fuerza/Anda, goza con nosotras/Si no te gusto, ahí está la puerta.”
Produced by Douster, the radio-ready tropical bop is not the first time its two artists have linked — Nina and the King donned matching sweater dresses for Nina’s last single “Traketeo” and the perreo singer guested on King’s YouTube makeup series. Nina’s proven herself committed to featuring queer people in her music and videos, an overdue development in a genre that, like every other school of music, has featured homophobic voices throughout its history.
