Camila Cabello Honors Selena Quintanilla At Houston Rodeo By Singing “Dreaming Of You”
Move over Kacey Musgraves, Prince Royce, and Cardi B. There’s another artist paying tribute to the reigning queen of Texas. It seems like everyone stopping in Texas is paying tribute to La Reina, and for good reason. We’re in the middle of Selena’s historical 24th anniversary of her performance at the Houston Astrodome. So if an artist comes to town and doesn’t honor the late Tejano singer in some way, there will be hell to pay.
Camila Cabello is the latest artist to honor Selena Quintanilla At Houston Rodeo.
The Cuban singer showed up in full rodeo attire on Tuesday night, which reminded us a ton of Cardi B’s cowboy outfit that she wore in Houston. However, the “Havana” singer went all black with rhinestones with her outfit. It is definitely giving us the same vibes as Selena’s iconic black and bedazzled bustier that we all remember all these years later.
She looked stunning in her cowboy chaps. Are we sure she isn’t a true Texan?
“Thank you, Houston Rodeo!” Cabello wrote on social media. “I went up there and was so nervous, every time I saw a yellow NBTS hoodie I was so relieved lmao, thank you for always making me feel supported and loved, I love you guys so much!!!!!! PS, how can I sign up to be a cowgirl.”
It’s been interesting to see which song an artist covers and whether they sing in Spanish or English. Cabello did a rendition of Selena’s first English crossover song “Dreaming Of You.” Definitely a good choice to go with a fan favorite that is also one of the most iconic songs of all time.
Here’s Cabello’s cover of Selena’s “Dreaming Of You.”
Cabello wrote: “55,001 souls dreaming of Selena last night at the Houston rodeo. We love you, Selena 🌹” Yes, we do. It seems like most of the people at Cabello’s concert felt the same way. Basically, if you are in Texas right now, check out the artist at Houston Rodeo because chances are you will get a great Selena tribute out of the deal. So worth it.
Obviously the Texas fans were here for it because, well, anything for Selenas.
We wish we could have been there to experience the magic. Cabello is Cuban-Mexican-American and it is clear that Selena is one of her inspirations. The way she was able to capture the emotion of the song and give everyone a tearful moment remembering the queen of our childhoods and her iconic music.
It was definitely too much emotion for one night.
The emotion really reads through the video. You don’t even have to know Cabello to feel completely enthralled with the beautiful rendition of “Dreaming Of You.”
Meanwhile, some people are getting a little too into the brief performance.
Take a deep breath and think about that for a second. There really isn’t a need for a new Selena movie since the original is so good. Like, no need to fix what isn’t broken.
