“Enamorada de ti,” an album featuring well-known artists in posthumous duets with slain singer Selena 17 years after her death is now on sale.
The Capitol Latin record label announced in a communique that the production has three acoustic numbers and the iTunes edition includes the song “Is It the Beat,” a remix recorded by Juan Magan as a bonus track.
Selena was the stage name of Tex-Mex singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez, born April 16, 1971, in Lake Jackson, Texas, and murdered by Yolanda Saldivar, the president of her fan club, on March 31, 1995, in Corpus Christi.
In 1995, Selena made history by becoming the first artist to simultaneously have five Spanish-language albums among Billboard’s Top 200 Albums.
The new album includes collaborations by Cristian Castro, Don Omar and Selena Gomez.
In March, Chris Perez, the guitarist to whom the singer was married when she was killed, published a book in which he tells his story of love with the queen of Tex-Mex music in both Spanish and English.
