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.

It Looks Like We All Have A Lot More In Common With Becky G Than Just A Love For Mayores

Becky G recently sat down for an interview with Billboard’s “Growing Up Latino” and we just fell in love with the Mayores singer even more.

Like I had no idea we had so much in common.

In the interview, she discusses her favorite Spanglish slang, childhood games, and her pride as a Latina musician. It’s so good!

Becky G we are here for you living your best life and owning your identity. We need more of this!

Many on Twitter were so grateful to hear her speak up as a Latina and to have a role model they can identify with.

Growing up Latino, often the only role models you see are white ones or negative depictions of Latinos – characters created by Hollywood and the media.

So a huge shout out to Becky G and all the other incredible Latinos and Latinas helping change that.

Many were happy to see a woman celebrating her cultural heritage.

We couldn’t be more proud of the singer for speaking up.

The “Sin Pijama” singer herself took to Twitter to promote the interview and proudly proclaim her identity, which she says is a huge part of who she is as a performer.

Also, can we talk about how she used to play ‘tag’ as a kid growing up and how pozole and aguachile are her favorite foods?! #SAME

She’s helping empower women and girls just like her while trailblazing a whole new world for future generations of Latinas.

We feel you. We’re doing the same.

Becky G is also making headlines for her recent collaboration with Zayn Malik for “A Whole New World,” from Aladdin.

People are living for this track and all that it means for the Latino community.

Now excuse us while we stream “A Whole New World” for the rest of the afternoon.

Seriously, this song is so good.

Becky G, thank you for being who you are and empowering the next generation of Latinos and Latinas.

The “Sin Pijama” songstress will be singing alongside pop-R&B star Zayn. Last week, the former One Direction member released a music video for the English version of the song, which he performed with newcomer Zhavia Ward.

The video — sans a magic carpet ride — shows Zayn and the previous contestant on FOX’s The Four singing the romantic ballad during a rainy evening in Manhattan.

“The selection of artists, producer and tonal direction was critical for the success of updating a classic song like this,” president of Walt Disney Studio’s Music & Soundtracks Mitchell Leib said in a statement. “Zayn’s vocals are like no other and his artistic imprint immediately brought a contemporary and diverse presence.”

According to Becky, “Un Mundo Ideal” is set to release on Friday, with a music slated soon after, and fans can barely tame themselves.

Aladdin hits theaters on May 24th. You can preorder the soundtrack here
