Selena Quintanilla, the queen of Tex-Mex and her legacy in 5 covers

This post is also available in: Español (Spanish)

25 years after the loss of Selena Quintanilla, we give you 5 covers to remember the queen of Tex-Mex

March 31 marked the 25th anniversary of the assassination of the queen of Tex-Mex, Selena Quintanilla. But hey, we are not here to mope or recap her life; we want to show off her legacy. Damn you Yolanda Saldívar (b****!), but we won’t get into her, we rather honor la Reina with these tunes.

Moreover, her legacy as we mentioned, has been recognized by contemporary artists who have performed covers of her songs and made musical tributes to the queen. Some are unexpected and others go hand in hand with the genre that Selena popularized in life.

Platonica – Como la Flor

This punk rock cover made by the Peruvian band is one of the examples of Selana’s impact on Latin America. Especially since she is often linked exclusively to Mexico, Colombia and the United States.


Cuco – La Carcacha

Cuco, one of the most popular contemporary artists, has something in common with the queen of Tex-Mex. Both are children of Mexican migrants and are referred to as Chicanos in popular slang.

At one of Cuco’s concerts, he performed his own version of La Carcacha, a 1992 theme. The video shows the excitement of all the audience who, despite their young age, know the song perfectly.


Los Abandoned – Como la Flor

Another cover that is not exactly in the context of Latin music is that of the band Los Abandoned, founded in California with Latin members influenced by Spanish music. Thanks to this, their version of Como la Flor is one of the most enjoyable Selena covers.


Panteón Rococó – Si una vez

A Mexican band could not be left out of this list! Furthermore, Pantheon Rococó who recently released a version of Si una vez with all their ska-style instrumentation has been making music history for years.


Moderatto – Amor Prohibido

Finally, Moderatto chose to make Amor Prohibido in their unique style and it suited them perfectly. Especially because their rocker, metal and pop style is very ad hoc to the love lyrics… and the broken heart tune.


Kumbia Kings – Baila esta Cumbia

Last but not least, just because it makes us dance and feel good, Baila esta cumbia Kumbia Kings style. In addition to the close relationship with Selena, Abraham Isaac Quintanilla II’s homage in this production captures the singer’s wonderful essence.

What are your favorite covers?

Long Live the Queen!
