After the original music video for Play-N-Skillz “Si Una Vez” released that was sleek, professionally shot and got millions of views on Youtube, a new lyric video popped up this week that is a lot more laid back, and features Becky G and Kap G. Word up, my G. There’s something dope about seeing these artists looking chill and enjoying themselves, intercut with their fans dancing and singing, too.

Becky G took part in the remix of Play-N-Skillz “Si Una Vez” supplying her own selfie-vid for the lyric video.

She killed it!

This Spanglish version of the song released back in February shortly after the original version with Winsin and Leslie Grace, but it didn’t seem like there were plans originally to release a full video. The video comes as a pleasant surprise, with everyone looking like they’re kicking it at home and recording bits and pieces on their phones. The fans really do make the video special as they’re dancing and singing their hearts out. This Spanglish version of “Si Una Vez” is a remix, and a bit of a tribute, to Selena’s original song by the same name.

Folks on Twitter were making sure to remind us all that Selena was the OG behind this song.

Serious fans were suspicious about letting Selena’s name be tarnished.

Other’s thought only parts of it were good.

Selena’s fans are very protective of her legacy.

Some fans sent in clips for the lyric video and weren’t notified that they were put in the final cut. They were freaking out.

Chiquis And Becky G Release Video For Spanish-Language Version Of Dolly Parton’s Hit Song ‘Jolene’

Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” is arguably one of the most iconic songs in American music. We have all heard bits and pieces of the song growing up because it is just that iconic. After almost 50 years, “Jolene” has another Spanish-language cover brought to us by Becky G and Chiquis.

Spanish-speaking country music fans have a new cover to celebrate.

Becky G and Chiquis have released the music video for their Spanish-language cover of the American classic song “Jolene.” Originally released by Dolly Parton in 1973, “Jolene” is one of those songs that have become a timeless classic of American music.

Country music is quickly becoming a favorite genre in the Latino community. There has been a 25 percent increase in Latino support of country music. When you consider how many Latinos live in the south in states like Texas, it kind of makes sense.

Rolling Stone magazine claimed that it was the first Spanish-language cover of the song.

The magazine got called out on Twitter after claiming that this was the first Spanish-language cover of “Jolene.” The cover by regional Mexican music divas Becky G and Chiquis is good but it is not the first.

The first Spanish-language cover of “Jolene” is by Las Chicas del Can.

The Dominican group recorded “Youlin” in 1985 and the merengue take on the song is really fun to listen to. The version from the girl group is a very different take and feel on the song as compared to Becky G and Chiquis. The two songs are very different and both are very fun to listen to.

Either way, fans of country and regional Mexican music are here for this.

The music video is an animated rollercoaster with Becky G and Chiquis playing tough mujeres doing their thing. The music video is set up like a comic book because we all know that the most amazing superhero stories are comic books. Tbh, these two looked perfect in their tough acting roles.

If you want to listen to the original “Jolene,” here it is.

Truly, this will probably remain one of the greatest American classics of all time.

Becky G Performs Tribute To Selena At San Antonio Concert

It has been 25 years since Selena Quintanilla was killed by her fan club president Yolanda Saldívar. Despite the time we have spent without La Reina of Tejano music on this earth, her fandom and power continue to grow every day. The proof is in the number of covers and tributes to her and Becky G is now one of the artists.

Becky G used part of her concert at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo venue to honor a Texas great: Selena Quintanilla.

The Inglewood singer followed a playbook that many artists have used when playing in Texas but giving Selena a little bit of love. It has become a tradition for artists to do special renditions of Selena’s hits when they are performing at a Texas venue.

The Texas audience was muy excited when Becky G began to sing “Dreamin’ of You.”

Several artists who have passed through Texas have taken a moment in their concert to cover a Selena song. Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves, and Camila Cabello all sang Selena music during their Texas concerts last year and the effort was super appreciated by Texas fans.

Even fans who couldn’t go to the concert are sharing their love and appreciation for the performance.

Legit, Becky G did that in San Antonio. Selena holds a very important place in musical history and even more important place in the hearts of Latino music lovers. She was the first big recognition Latinos had in the music world, especially with her English crossover.

Good job keeping Selena’s legacy alive, Becky G.

It has been 25 years since Selena was killed by her fan club president Yolanda Saldívar. In the 25 years, Selena’s star has continued to grow. She continues to win music awards because of ho much Latinos love her music and what she represented. She recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was immortalized with a wax figure by Madame Tussauds.
