As part of the Global Citizen Festival this year, musicians such as Neil Young, The Foo Fighters, Coldplay and Shakira, performed live in Hamburg, Germany. In the spirit of “Global Citizen,” which is a platform that focuses on social change around the world, Coldplay and Shakira collaborated on stage to perform some of their most popular songs together. As Chris Martin was getting ready to introduce Shakira onto the stage, he told the crowd, “Now we’re going to try something musical, which could be a disaster, but it could be amazing.” But despite the doubts Chris Martin may have had about the performance (particularly singing in Spanish), as soon as he said, “…from Colombia,” the crowd started to cheer even louder in excitement. Check out how amazing this Coldplay and Shakira duet turned out as they sang along to some of their hit songs including, “Yellow,” “Chantaje,” and “Me Enamoré.”
Jennifer Lopez arguably became a household name after she portrayed Selena in the biopic about the iconic Mexican-American singer. Since then, J.Lo has become a musical, acting, and producing force in the entertainment industry. Now, at 50, the Puerto Rican superstar is on a new tour and fans in San Antonio were treated to a special cover when she belted out “Si Una Vez” by Texas legend Selena Quintanilla.
J.Lo really showed up for her San Antonio audience with her “Si Una Vez” song after admitting it was her favorite.
At the beginning of the video, J.Lo asks the audience if they want to hear a little Selena. Like, what kind of question is that to ask a Texas audience? Of course, they want to hear some Selena. After asking the crowd which song would be best she told them that “Si Una Vez” is her favorite and that sent the crowd into a frenzy.
Fans were so excited to learn J.Lo’s favorite Selena song because we all have one.
Finding someone with the same favorite Selena song as you is so amazing. Legit, one of the most telling signs of how long your friendship and relationship will last is the Selena test. Do they know who Selena is? Do they like her music? Do you have the same favorite Selena song? This is crucial
Seeing the woman who brought Selena to the big screen was one of the most touching moments for so many people.
Hearts fluttered. Angels got wings. Moods were lifted. It was a physical moment for so many people who could feel the love from the stage. It was as if Selena was on stage in J.Lo’s body giving us the concert we have been craving.
While all of the concertgoers were melting down, social media people also lost their minds over the cover.
It’s like Thalía taking time during her concert to give the fans a taste of Jenni Rivera. Who wouldn’t want to be there for that moment? It feels like a special connection between the singer and the audience as they give praise and attention to a shared icon.
This is one way to ring in your 50th birthday, J.Lo.
There is one thing everyone knows for sure, J.Lo is a force that cannot be overlooked. She is a strong and powerful singer. A recognizable actor. A successful producer. But, most importantly, she is a Selena fan who gives the Tejano singer the respect and love she deserves.
Watch the full performance below.
Thank you, J.Lo. You know how to make your shows something to remember.
Los Tigres del Norte is one band that all Mexican-Americans stan. They have a way of transcending generations and the whole family can go to a concert and jam out. That’s exactly what happened with their last concert at the Rodeo Houston, which broke Cardi B’s record attendance…by six people.
We can all remember the first time we heard “Los Hijos de Hernández” and “Contrabanda y Traiccion.” These songs are just two of the reasons the band is still a force to be reckoned with today.
Cardi B stunned Texas when she broke the all-time attendance record at the Rodeo Houston.
Cardi B got a crowd of 75,580 people to fill the Rodeo Houston on March 1. She beat Garth Brooks’ record attendance on March 18, 2018 by just three people. The record-breaking attendance is a true testament to the diversity in the Texas city.
Houston even honored Cardi B with her very own day, March 1.
Cardi B was presented with a proclamation after her show announcing March 1 as Cardi B Day. A lot fo people are saying it is because she set a record with her concert attendance but the proclamation outlines the reason for her receiving the honor.
“On the weekend of August 26, 2017, the greater Houston area experienced a life-altering natural disaster. Houstonians dealt with devastating losses due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey. Through compassionate people willing to serve during this difficult time, Houston has remained resilient in its recovery efforts. Cardi B was no exception and unequivocally expressed her support by mobilizing into action to hose the Hurricane Harvey Relief Drive on September 16, 2017.”
Just 10 days after Cardi B’s record-breaking night, Los Tigres del Norte rolled into town.
If there is any band that can get all of Houston to the Rodeo Houston, it would definitely be Los Tigres del Norte. The norteño band has been rocking out homes and families since 1968 and they show no signs of slowing down, nor should they. They remain as relevant today as they were 50 years ago and for that we salute them as if they are family.
Oh, and they totally beat Cardi B’s record for Rodeo Houston attendance by six people.
That’s right. Cardi B brough 75,580 people to the Rodeo Houston and Los Tigres del Norte arrived with 75,586 of their closest fans. Only six people were needed to officially unseat Cardi B as the most attended concert in Rodeo Houston’s history.
And some people went straight to the Nicki Minaj/Cardi B feud to share their joy with this change.
Dayummmmmm. Rodeo Houston has been hosting some of the biggest names in music lately with a slew of artists taking their shows to Texas’ largest city. Kacey Musgraves, Cardi B, and Camila Cabello are just a few of the names to recently rock the concert venue. They even gave Selena touching and, some would say, necessary tributes while performing in Houston.
People are truly wildin’ out over Los Tigres del Norte beating Cardi B for attendance.
They really did that, though. Like, they legit rolled through, saw what Cardi B did and figured they could outdo her. They did and it seemed like they didn’t even flinch when they performed to the largest-ever crowd at Rodeo Houston.
Some people are flabergasted at how quickly Cardi B lost her title.
How could you really expect a norteño band wouldn’t bring in more people than any other kind of musician in Texas? It is Texas and Mexico is literally right next door. It makes sense that the most beloved band in the Mexican and Mexican-American communities would bring in the largest crowd. It just makes sense, tbh.
Some are even asking Houston if Los Tigres del Norte will get their own day.
Surely, Los Tigres del Norte have done something worthy of a day commemorating them. However, Cardi B was presented her proclamation tied to what she did for Houston following Hurricane Harvey, not just because of her concert size.
So many musicians have made their way through Houston lately and there could be a change to the most-attended concert in the near future. We’ll just have to stay tuned to see what the future holds.
