Here Are 9 Selena Covers That Show The Late Singer’s Continued Impact On Music Today
There is a reason we all still love and sing Selena songs to this day. Everyone from Kat Von D to Jackie Cruz have covered Selena songs and each is just another reminder why we all love La Reina.
Kacey Musgraves gave Selena a fitting tribute during her concert at Rodeo Houston.
The Grammy winner was raised in Texas so her love for Selena is real and deep. She grew up listening to the Tejano singer and it shows in her ability to sing in Spanish for adoring fans.
Camila Cabello also gave Selena a great tribute at the same venue.
Obviously, a young Latina like Cabello is very familiar with Selena and her iconic music. It has been 24 years since Selena took the stage at the Houston AstroDome and the year has inspired artists to give her a special shoutout when in her state.
Jackie Cruz totally blew us away with her modern take on “Como La Flor.”
She had all of us screaming, “Como La Floooooorrrr” and opened our eyes to this talent we didn’t know she had.
Paulina Rubio made everyone emotional during her version of “Fotos Y Recuerdos” during Selena Vive.
Me still: ? ?
Thalía belting “Amor Prohibido” proved to all of us that Selena’s music is definitely here to stay.
TBH, it was probably the first song any of us could sing all the way through.
Even Selena Gomez, named after the Tejano pop star, had to cover “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” during an early concert.
Seriously, Selena permeates ALL of pop culture, from Selena Gomez to Beyoncé.
“Dreaming Of You” sounded so dreamy when Bruno Mars treated his audience to an unexpected tribute.
Just when you think you can’t love Bruno Mars any more, he goes and does that.
Even Suzette Quintanilla appreciated Adrienne Bailon’s “I Could Fall In Love” cover.
It makes total sense Kumbia Kings did a “Baila Esta Cumbia” cover and they did it so much justice.
Get it, boys! Selena would be proud.
Little Becky G even did a medley of four classic and instantly recognizable Selena songs.
She hit “Como La Flor,” “Baila Esta Cumbia,” ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” AND “Techno Cumbia” in ONE medley and her hand gestures were on point.
And, let’s not forget the woman who brought Selena to life on the big screen covering “No Me Queda Más” like only she can.
We see you J.Lo and we appreciate you.
