I’m not completely into the idea of people covering Selena Quintanilla. I mean, what’s the point? Can anyone really come close to the original? However, when I heard a reworked version of one of her classics, “Si Una Vez,” I was all ears.
Back in April, we told you that Play-N-Skillz had released a cover of Selena’s “Si Una Vez,” featuring Leslie Grace and Frankie J.
Great video, right?
Then came the bilingual version of the song featuring Becky G!
While this is a cute video, you can’t get the full effect… until now.
Billboard reports that a live performance was filmed in late May at Rosedale Park in San Antonio, Texas. Here’s the whole crew singing it live:
Here’s the star-studded lineup: Becky G, Play-N-Skillz, Frankie J and Kap-G. Billboard also reports that the Spanish version peaked at No. 22 and is currently at the 50th position. Will Becky G’s presence help nudge the song to a high position the way Justin Bieber did with Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito”?
By the way, this isn’t the first time Becky G has covered Selena.
Here she is singing “Como La Flor” and “Baila Esta Cumbia.
And who can forget Becky G imitating Selena on “Sabado Gigante”?
She’s had a lot of practice and it’s paid off!
