Selena Quintanilla To Get Star at The Hollywood Walk of Fame



Selena’s life and career may have been tragically cut-short more than 21 years ago,  but her legacy will live-on forever…at The Hollywood Walk of Fame, in our hearts, and beyond!

On Tuesday, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced that it would be making the unique Mexican-American singer a permanent part of its Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“The Committee looked carefully at each nominee and we feel that we have selected a great group of talent that will appeal to the tastes of many fans around the world,” said TV producer Vin Di Bona, chair of the Walk of Fame Selection Committee, in a statement.

Quintanilla – known as the “Queen of Tejano music” – was shot and killed by Yolanda Saldivar in 1995. She was just 23 years old.

Her sister Suzette Quintanilla reacted to the news on Instagram.

“The world will know forever,” she captioned an image of her sister and her star.

Actress Eva Longoria, filmmaker George A. Romero and Gustavo Dudamel, director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, are also among the Latinos selected for this year’s Walk of Fame class.

In a statement to Fox News Latino, which she also shared on her Instagram account, Longoria expressed her elation for the honor.

I could never have dreamed that one day I would receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But even more ironic is that the same year I receive my star, so does my idol, my inspiration, my fellow Tejana, my fellow Corpus Christi native, Selena Quintanilla. She was the reason I even dared to dream that a better life was possible. And that that life didn’t have to distance you from where you came from. So many people become famous and leave a place without ever crediting it with the role it played in shaping their lives. Selena was proud of being from Corpus Christi, Texas. And that made me proud to be from Corpus. She blazed the way for all of us and I will be forever grateful to her for not only that but for the pure joy I felt when I got to see her perform. Her smile, her charisma, her beauty put every single person who watched her under a spell. Thank you Selena. I know I will receive my star on the Walk of Fame because you dared to dream it first. ⭐⭐⭐

She added that the honor is enhanced because its at the same time as Quintanilla.

“What makes this even sweeter is that I stand side by side with my idol Selena Quintanilla! Corpus girls representing!” she said.

In honor of The Queen of Tejano! Take a listen below at some of her greatest hits:

“Saludo A Los Haters Que Son Fieles!” – Nicky Jam Joins Jaden Smith On The Official “Icon” Remix



While Nicky Jam and Will Smith gear-up for an epic collaboration to produce the 2018 World Cup’s official song, there was yet another collaboration brewing with Smith Junior (Jaden Smith). The official remix of Jaden Smith’s summer hit song, “Icon” features Nicky Jam.

The duo hit the streets of Cartagena for the music video rapping in both English and Spanish respectively.

“I am not a Mayan, I’m a menace (menace)
It’s wild, you can lie like a professor
I don’t got the time to put you on the stretcher (stretcher)
I am here and I’m still flexing (flexing)
I am just an icon living
Start a record label, MSFTS just did it, woah
I’m Highsnob, cover five minutes, woah
We are so hot in the business (woo),” raps Jaden.

Followed by Nicky’s…”No le tengo miedo a ningún venenoso
He nacido con el todopoderoso (woo!)
Le metimos con un ritmo escandaloso
Ya no estamos en la calle ni ‘tamos vendiendo coso (Icon)
Suéltame el beat, lo destrozo
El dúo latino, so mentiroso
Pa’ to’s los envidiosos pa’ to’s los resentidos y rencorosos
Yo sé que en el fondo ustedes están muy orgullosos”

Earlier this year, Nicky Jam shared with Billboard that Will Smith was responsible for his collaboration Jaden.

The original “Icon” was included on Jaden’s 2017  SYRE album.

The Boston native Nicky Jam has been hinting on an English-language album for some time now, so expect more collabs and mainstream music from him in the months to come.
