Monthly Playlist: Anything for Selenas Edition
Se acuerdan en la pelicula de Selena when their bus breaks down and the two cholos try to help them get unstuck? Then the one guy says the iconic line “Anything for Selenas!” That’s how we’re feeling this month. We couldn’t let April 2021 go by without celebrating La Reina, Selena Quintanilla-Perez. April 16th, 2021 marks what would have been her 50th birthday.
Selena is in many ways a patron saint of Latino culture in America. Her life story speaks to us so deeply because we can see ourselves in her story. Her legacy lives on in her music and it continues to celebrate Latino heritage and excellence around the world.
We put together a playlist of Selena’s most iconic tracks in honor. What’s your favorite Selena song?
