Joaquina Shares 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Her | Billboard

Joaquina shares 5 Things You Didn’t Know about her, including insight on her first album and her single, “pesimista.”


Hi friends, I’m Joaquina and these are five thing you may not know about me. Number one, my favorite food is pasta and milanesa, in no specific order. Separate, together, whatever, in any form, made any way, any preparation, always. Number two, the last song I released is called “pesimista,” but it’s actually a love song. And I think it’s a bit of an ironic title, but I thought it was funny to name it that on purpose. Number three, I think I have very poor time management and I’m trying to get better at that. I have learned to do my makeup anywhere possible, the bathroom, the car, on the street, in a dumpster, in a restaurant. No mirror? Doesn’t matter, I’ll use my cell phone camera. No cell phone camera? Doesn’t matter, I’ll use my imagination. You have to problem solve and here we are. In fact, I think my eyeliner is the only thing in my life that I do fast, that’s the truth. Number four, I am making my first album and the whole process has me feeling absolutely crazy, in every sense of the word, crazy with love, but also crazy because I am very obsessive when I write and my brain never stops thinking about the songs. And I think all the songs on the album were written in hotel rooms, in my room, in airplanes, in cabs, in cars, I think in everywhere but a studio.
