Texas native Brigitte Mena is releasing her new single, “Honeybee,” today which was inspired by the ending of a long-term relationship. Centered around a metaphor between a bee and its flower representing a relationship between two people, Mena says, “I saw myself as that flower, feeling this emptiness/depletion after a new relationship didn’t work out. The bee had this sense of freedom to depart and take what it needed from the flower. I felt stuck or rooted like the flower at the time, and thus the song was born.”
“I feel like so many of us struggle with attachment in relationships. I hope that when people listen to this song, they know that they are not alone in this battle and that our past experiences are what help us grow and shape who we are. I’ve always struggled with attachment, but I think it’s important to not repress our emotions and find ways to manage/grow from these internal conflicts.”

Brigitte Mena was born to be a storyteller, and her vehicle is music. The singer-songwriter’s heartrending tunes tell raw, personal tales enveloped in atmospheric, catchy melodies. But the artist has her sights set on much more than producing pop-rock tracks. Armed with her versatile voice, a pen and a penchant for crafting compelling songs, Mena strives to strike a chord with audiences and tell relevant, resonant stories.
Mena started crafting original music in high school and founded her first rock band as a freshman at Southern Methodist University, where she studied Music and Psychology. Mena’s music studies helped her hone her craft, while her work in psychology gave her an avenue to explore her interest in human behavior. Instead of choosing one passion over the other, the artist decided to merge the two roads ahead of her. By using her talents as a musician, Mena shines a light on topics like behavior, mental health, relationships, and identity.
Her debut album Maslow, released in 2018, explored Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and heralded the arrival of a distinctive new talent, showing audiences across Texas what’s possible when talent meets a one-of-a-kind voice. Mena can be seen in shows across DFW, and released her sophomore album, Element in August 2020. While her bandmates, sound and style have evolved over the years, her resolve to tell powerful stories has remained. “I create a story that is relatable to a wide range of listeners,” she says of her music. “These are songs I think we can all resonate with in one way or another.”
