Break out the sage and tap into the divine feminine with this playlist in the brujería spirit.

As October nears its festive end, the witching hour descends upon us yet again. While brujería (or witchcraft) goes beyond the fringes of Halloween (see: Afro-Latino, Indigenous religious practices), there's no time quite like the frightful season to break out the sage and tap into the divine feminine.

To help mark the celebratory occasion with its own soundtrack, Billboard compiled just a few tracks to help set the weekend's tone. Some warn detractors, others play on a darker side, all possess wickedly infectious music and span genres across hip-hop, electronica and pop. 

From Princess Nokia to Shakira to Ibeyi, let the official brujas playlist help unleash your inner slayage as you flex in your black brimmed hats, wicker brooms and cat suits.

Audri Nix – "Veneno"
