For years, we have enjoyed "Como La Flor," a song that definitely made a statement in Selena Quintanilla’s musical career. It became her first hit in the U.S., reaching No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart (dated Oct. 24, 1992).
The lyrics compare a love that ends to a flower that withers, because it does not receive the proper care.
Sadly, on March 31, 1995 Selena was fatally shot. To honor and remember Selena, Billboard has translated the beautiful lyrics of "Como La Flor," Selena's first hit in the U.S.
