Facebook Selena Quintanilla-Pérez (April 16, 1971 – March 31, 1995), known mononymously as Selena, was an American singer-songwriter, fashion designer and entrepreneur.

She landed her first major recording contract with EMI Latin in 1989 and released her debut album with them that same year. Her brother and principal record producer, A.B. Quintanilla III, began writing materials for Selena to record. "Como La Flor", the lead single for Entre a Mi Mundo (1992), peaked at number six on the U.S. Billboard Hot Latin Tracks. It launched Selena's Mexico tour which expanded her fan base and gained critical acclaim from critics who cite it as being her signature song and as well as being a fan favorite recording.

(1993) album garnered her first Grammy Award for Best Mexican/American Album, becoming the first Tejano recording artist to win a Grammy.
