Selena is on top of an album chart once again, 23 years after her untimely death in 1995.
The late Latin music icon’s album, Ones, originally released in October 2012 featuring 20 of her chart-topping hits, reached to the top spot of the iTunes Latin Albums chart on Wednesday.
Selena continues to dominate the top Latin album charts over two decades since she was murdered by her fan club president in March 1995.
According to Billboard, the “Queen of Cumbia” currently holds the top spot on the list of the 25 biggest selling Latin albums over the past 25 years, with her Dreaming Of You album selling almost 3 million units. Selena’s Amor Prohibido album is fourth on the list with over 1.2 million units sold.
In April 2017, Selena won Top Latin Albums Female Artist of the Year, for the second straight year, at the Latin Billboard Music Awards, solidifying her as one of the most iconic and beloved figures for Latinos, with her many albums, books based on her life, a make-up collection, a movie and so much more.
Universal Latin Entertainment released a limited-edition special purple vinyl release of the Ones album in August 2016.
