The Queen of Tejano music who influenced a generation of Latin and American singers in Northern and Latin America. Respect her and the legacy that proceeds her. My mother always played her music when I was young and I rediscovered her last year. She’s an inspiration and was taken from us too soon. Rest In Peace, queen.

The fact that she got 30 years only for premeditated murder just baffles me.

 

 

Anyways! “Dreaming of You” is THAT song and was destined to be a Top 10 English crossover hit in the states. It’s still her biggest hit here though!

And she was part of the fan club, that was stealing money from the club as well, low life :shakeno:

 

But no matter, Selena Q will forever be remembered in the music industry while the murderer is hardly with words.

Amor Prohibido is the greatest Latin song of all time.

Of course, Tea but it's sad, this beautiful talented woman had so much more to give, than taken so early.. 

 

It's just not right.

I love her so much :jonny: Her look, her performances, her talent, her songs are ICONIC. There is only one Selena.

 

Her story really moves me because she could have been way huger, but she made such an impact on American pop culture and that has spread through the world ever since her passing. I’m from the UK and no one really knows her here, but I found out about her through the internet one day and I was SHOOK :jonny: 

 

I watch this all the time:

It's not right with anyone. Even when God tries to warn them. Show them all the signs. But I won't dwell on that. Selena was the whole package. More than just singing.

No lies spotted. Every song in the OP goes hard too.

 

I'm still so mad she never got to fully develop her English crossover sound but at least she gave us gems like Dreaming of You.

I can't stop listening to/watching this video.

She moves so effortlessly.

Serving vocals.
