Are you a Selena superfan who has obsessed over every clip of the late Tejano singer? Here’s one you haven’t seen. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History has just released a Selena interview that was “lost” for more than 20 years. Recorded by the TV show “Tejano USA” in April of 1994, the two-minute clip features Selena Quintanilla talking about her Grammy win for Best Mexican/Mexican-American Album and her three-episode stint on the popular telenovela “Dos Mujeres, Un Camino.” The end of the interview may give you chills as Selena plugs her “new video” for a song called “Amor Prohibido.” Also of note: the host’s expert-level Spanglish game.
According to the Smithsonian, the interview was found in a television camera that was donated to National Museum of American History by KWEX-TV, a San Antonio-based TV station owned by Univision.
All the proceeds from the remix will be used to help those affected by recent natural disasters.
Beyoncé has teamed up with Colombian star J Balvin on a remix of his already wildly successful song. The original “Mi Gente” video has already racked up nearly 900,000,000 views on YouTube since being released in June. In less than 24 hours, the remixed version has already broken 1,000,000 views. The song is being used to raise money to help the people that have been affected by the recent natural disasters in the Caribbean and Mexico. When the song was released, Beyoncé announced that all the proceeds she makes from the song will be going to help Puerto Rico, Mexico, and the other Caribbean islands suffering right now. She has also set up a separate fundraising effort here.
Beyoncé broke the news of her collaboration with J Balvin in one of her funky videos on Instagram.
