Cesar K-Oso spoke exclusively with Tejano Nation about the collaboration, “We needed a song that was a boy and a girl and it’s not a cumbia, nobody has done it before so we can make it our own style. So we chose Barrio Boyzz and Selena. We started recording, we started doing this groove to it and we invited Ceci Zavala to do the Selena part.”
The original song peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart for six consecutive weeks. It eventually became the sixth most performed Latin song of 1994 in the United States and was the title track from the Barrio Boyzz 1993 album release. “Donde Quiera Que Estés” was nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year at the 1994 Tejano Music Awards.
The song features a group of talented musicians as Cesar K-Oso wanted a song that would please fans of Selena, “We invited people that pretty much knew what they were doing because if you’re going to do a Selena cover, I mean you have to do it right. To be honest, Selena fans are very, very picky and they’re very honest if they don’t like something.”
“Donde Quiera Que Estés” is available now at all digital music outlets from Azteca Music Group.
