Billboard magazine has ranked late bicultural music icon Selena as the Greatest of All-Time Latin Female Artists and third as Greatest of All-Time Latin Artists.
The chart is based on a formula combining all titles on both the weekly Hot Latin Songs Chart and the Top Latin Albums Chart.
Selena is also recognized in two additional charts, Greatest of All-Time Hot Latin Songs with “No Me Queda Mas” at #13, “Fotos Y Recuerdos” at #29, and “Amor Prohibido” at #46.
The “Queen of Cumbia” is also listed at #10 for the Greatest of All-Time Hot Latin Songs Artists.
Billboard Latin Music Week 2020 kicked off on Tuesday, Oct. 20. Panels, Q&As, and showcases are scheduled through Oct. 23.
Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla, told People En Español why Selena’s legacy continues 25 years after her death. “I think where we’re at now with Selena’s legacy is there’s a whole new generation that people that were fans of our music has now passed that on to their children and their children are passing it on to a newer generation. It’s a whole new generation finding out who Selena was, not only as an artist but as a person.”
