Don't believe us? Just press play below.


"La Llamada"

With lyrics such as "I saw you with her, you can't deny it," this is the song that you should really dedicate to the person who was unfaithful to you. While you're at it, remind them not to call you!

"No Debes Jugar"

This one goes out to the person who doesn't want to settle and wants to keep playing games with your heart. "If you want me, or not, just tell me / So that I can continue my path," Selena sings.

"Si Una Vez"

With its clear message of "I regret ever loving you," "Si Una Vez" is probably one of Selena's most empowering tracks. "If I once told you that I loved you / I don't know what I was thinking, I was crazy," she belts.

"No Me Queda Mas"

"No Me Queda Mas" is the heartfelt song you'll blast at full volume when you're trying to get over an impossible love.

"Cobarde"

On "Cobarde," Selena sings about a man who's basically a coward. "You are just a coward / You lack the courage to speak to me / And you're still running away from me."

"Que Creias"

With "Que Creias," Selena lets her ex know that she's over the relationship and has moved on.

"Baila Esta Cumbia"

And this song is the one you should be singing and dancing to all day, every day, to forget about your ex!
