Netflix’s ‘Selena: The Series’ Leads To Massive Increase In Spotify Streams Of La Reina’s Music

Selena has been dead longer than she was alive, yet her legendary status is only strengthening. La Reina de Tejano Music continues to reign supreme and the latest Spotify Wrapped proves it. Streams of Selena’s music skyrocketed this year and we love to see it.

Selena’s music continues to spread around the world in 2020.

Selena’s music is timeless. Her heartfelt music, in English and Spanish, has transcended culture and race to speak to people around the world. Twenty-five years after her death, Selena fans are still going strong and passing that legacy down to the younger generations. The new Netflix series has reignited that love of Selena to incredibly high proportions.

Streams of Selena’s music on Spotify increased 260 percent.

That’s not a typo. People streamed Selena’s song 260 percent more than the month before because of the timelessness of this singing queen. The spike in Selena streams come after “Selena: The Series” was released on Netflix. The family-approved tv show received a lot of backlash from Selena fans because of the wigs and storyline. However, the show did bring music lovers back to her.

Fans are proud to have helped Selena break this record.

According to Spotify, three songs were the most loved by Selena fans. Two of the songs had the biggest growth in listeners. Those two songs are “Como La Flor” and “Amor Prohibido,” which saw 250 percent and 150 percent increases, respectively. “El Chico del Apartamento 512” joined in to be the three Selena songs to break into the top 200 Spotify songs.

Once again, Selena proves that she is more than a queen of Tex-Mex, she is a queen of music.

The lasting legacy of Selena is something we are still talking about because it still matters. She has remained relevant decades after her death and that is not an easy feat. As 2020 comes to a close, it is impressive to know that Selena is still going strong.
