Kali Uchis Did a Cover of Selena Quintanilla’s “Si Una Vez” and It’s Beautiful

Colombian singer Kali Uchis paid homage to Tex-Mex queen Selena Quintanilla with a gorgeous rendition of “Si Una Vez” for Amazon Music Latin.

For Latinx Heritage Month, Amazon Music Latin’s “FLUENT” playlist celebrates Spanglish speakers

As many of us know, Selena Quintanilla became the face for those of us who grew up between two cultures and speaking both languages. Amazon Music Latin’s FLUENT playlists wants to connect fans and celebrate those who move fluidly between cultures and the universal language of music.

For Kali, this was a moment for her to pay homage to La Reina del Tex-Mex. As a Spanglish speaker herself that grew up between Colombia and Virginia, she infused her bicultural influences in this beautiful cover.

“The launch of this playlist is meant to support our community, so of course I had to pay homage to the Spanglish queen who paved the way,” said Kali Uchis. “Rest in Power Selena, we love you and you will never be forgotten.”
