Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, the beloved Queen of Tejano music, continues to make waves decades after her terrible death.
Her legendary album ‘Amor Prohibido’ has passed a significant milestone, cementing its status as a seminal work in Latin music history.
According to Chart Data, ‘Amor Prohibido’ has now received an incredible 41x Platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), making it the second most certified Latin album in US history.
 
The importance of this achievement cannot be emphasized. ‘Amor Prohibido,’ released in 1994, is a timeless gem that captivates fans with its fusion of Tejano, cumbia, and pop elements. 
 
Selena’s record not only demonstrated her extraordinary singing talent but also her ability to connect with listeners on a deeply emotional level. 
 
The songs such as the title tune “Amor Prohibido,” “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” and “No Me Queda Más” continue to captivate audiences around the world, crossing linguistic and cultural boundaries.
Passing the 40x Platinum level demonstrates Selena’s ongoing impact and the unshakable dedication of her following, known as “Selena’s Army.”
Her influence in the music industry reaches well beyond her untimely demise, and the continuous success of ‘Amor Prohibido’ serves as a poignant reminder of her enduring legacy.
Surprisingly, ‘Amor Prohibido’ currently ranks just below another Selena record, ‘Dreaming of You,’ which holds the title of the highest certified Latin album in RIAA history.
 ‘Dreaming of You’ was released posthumously in 1995 and remains a moving homage to Selena’s life and career, with a mix of English and Spanish tunes that demonstrated her flexibility as an artist.
