Despite not being physically with us, Jenni Rivera’s music is still more alive than ever, especially on digital platforms.

Today (July 2) marks what would have been La Diva de la Banda's 50th birthday, and to celebrate, Billboard has gathered the late Mexican singer's five best songs.

From “Ya Lo Sé” to “Por Qué No Le Calas,” listen to Jenni Rivera’s best songs below.


"Ya  Lo Sé"

Although Jenni Rivera was a strong woman her feelings were real.  Her song "Ya Lo Sé" is one of those songs that a woman scorned would sing to the man she loves and lost.

"Basta Ya" (with Marco Antonio Solís)

"Basta Ya" is one of the best songs written by Marco Antonio Solís. Although it has different versions, Jenni Rivera recorded it for her album Joyas Prestadas, released in 2011.

"No Llega El Olvido"

Rivera was known for singing (from the bottom of her heart) rancheras about spite and "No Llega el Olvido" is the real representation. 

"Por Qué No Le Calas"

"Por Que No Calas" represents a strong woman who can face her man during the worst situations of a relationship. With phrases like “Si crees que otra si a de amarte por completo. Porque no empacas le buscas y le calas" (If you think that another woman will love you completely, why don’t you pack and look for it.), Jenni Rivera not only shows that she is strong, but motivates her fans to confront any situation. 

"La Gran Señora"

Jenni Rivera will always be La Gran Señora (The Big Lady).  The song shows Rivera’s real personality.  She was strong lady who was ready to fight and defend what belongs to her.
