Billboard’s 'El Factor Latino' podcast is breaking the biweekly schedule to time this special podcast with Selena’s anniversary. All guests recorded from home because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Twenty-five years have passed since Selena Quintanilla’s life was cut short at only 23 years old. It’s a nostalgic day for fans but also one that marks a celebration of the Queen of Tejano’s musical and cultural impact.
In this week’s Billboard’s El Factor Latino podcast, senior writer Griselda Flores and assistant editor Jessica Roiz co-host an episode with Fredy Correa, an original member of the Barrio Boyzz and touring member of Selena y Los Dinos and Latin Grammy-nominated singer Angela Aguilar, talking about the importance of Selena's legacy.
“Her personality was larger than life,” Correa, who collaborated with Selena in “Donde Quieras Que Estes” and also toured with her, tells Billboard. “She truly enjoyed being an entertainer and expressing her art to the people who appreciated and valued what she did.”
