I watched Selena the Series: Part 2 a few nights ago.
It was so insightful. I stayed up until 5 am because I just couldn’t stop watching. As a fan of the Tejano singer, I didn’t know a lot of that behind-the-scenes information that they shared. It really went in-depth with the struggles she faced as she grew into her fame.
While Part 1 went into her early years and portrayals of her sibling’s stories, Part 2 focused on Selena and her marriage. In the movie, they only had a small window to show her life and the life of the rest of her bandmates, Los Dinos. This series allowed fans to really see who Selena was.
I absolutely loved the song, Dame Un Beso. It was the first time hearing it and it quickly became one of my favorites. Those earlier songs from Selena Y Los Dinos were an eye-opener into why they made it as far as they did and why Selena was so popular from the beginning.
It always makes me sad because you know how it all ends up. It still seems so senseless that her life had to end that way. The great thing is we can still listen to her music and honor her amazing talent that way.
