As if we needed another reason to love Kat Von D, the LA-based tattoo artist went and did this.
In a recent Facebook post, the Mexican-born Argentinian shows her beautiful Spanish and her pipes with “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.” Covering a Selena song is always nerve-wracking because you want to do the queen justice…and daaaaamn, Kat Von D nail-ed IT!
She has a couple videos on Instagram where she is showing off that hidden singing talent of hers, so we shouldn’t be too surprised. There’s really only one question left to ask, “Why hasn’t Kat Von D pursued a singing career?” The world may never know, but for now she got us like…
It has been 25 years since Selena Quintanilla was killed by Yolanda Saldívar. Since then, Selena’s fandom has continued to grow as younger generations have discovered her music. In honor of the late singer, a tribute concert is happening on May 9 and here is the information we have so far.
Music is taking a moment to honor Selena with a 25th-year tribute concert.
SelenaXXV is happening at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The concert is bringing together some of the biggest names in Latin music to give fans a night to remember centered around La Reina of Tejano music.
The concert is happening on Saturday, May 9 in San Antonio because texas is the only place to have this concert.
Selena’s place in Latin music history is undeniable. She was the first major Latina musician to start breaking down barriers for future Latino artists to rise in mainstream music. Her crossover songs brought our culture and experience to mainstream music audiences.
Here are a few of the artists you can expect to see at the SelenaXXV concert:
There’s no way you can have a tribute concert to a Latin music legend without Mr. Worldwide. The Cuban musician has spent his career bettering his community and giving Latino representation around the world. Who better to keep the hyped energy for the concert that Pitbull?
Los Tucanes de Tijuana
We are definitely feeling this norteño take on Selena’s classics. The band is wildly popular for their solid and incredible norteño sound and we can only imagine what they will prepare to honor Selena. Mexican legends giving praise to a Mexican-American legend is everything.
The Inglewood native already showed her respect and love for Selena during her last concert in Texas. The singer belted out a beautiful rendition of “Dreamin’ of You,” one of Selena’s most famous songs. It just seems like a natural choice to have Becky G back in San Antonio for more Selena tributes.
The former Fifth Harmony band member took the stage during the 2019 Miss Universe pageant to sing a medley of Selena’s songs. Fans of the pageant and of Selena were ecstatic that Selena was getting some recognition during one of the biggest pageants in the world.

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.
