Selena Quintanilla Perez
Also known as the queen of tex-mex, Selena was undoubtedly one of the greatest exponents of Latin music, her songs continue to be played on many radios around the world, and keeping in mind the legacy that the singer has left, this is not surprising. If you don’t know who this extremely talented artist was, right now it’s a good time to find out about her story, the new Netflix series called “Selena: the series” shows her artistic career in detail, and it also let us watch an important part of her Personal life.
Selena was not only an icon of the genre she pioneered, but she also greatly facilitated the exposure of many Latin artists that emerged after her tragic death; All this has only made the expectations of the fans who adore the artist continually grow, but is this show just a gift from Netflix for the Selena fans, or is it also capable of pleasing the general public?
How good is the series?
It is important to mention that, as mentioned before, the show does not focus exclusively on Selena’s artistic career, but shows what the life of the Quintanilla family was like, always in a smooth way, without trying to be too dramatic. We constantly observe how what reigns in the family is the union, despite all the adversities that they go through; However, as the series continues, we observe how the tone changes little by little until we reach the last episode, where the approach is clearly cruder than that of the rest of the series.
Despite being a biographical series, the way it is told can be very entertaining, it is a show that seeks not only to tell what the artist’s life was but also to entertain the viewers, even those who watch it without knowing the singer’s story.
Another important aspect to mention is the fact that this series is authorized by the Quintanilla family, which means that the events we see on the screen are very similar to those that have taken place in real life. On the other hand, unlike what many may think when hearing about the series, the first season does not tell the whole story of Selena until the day of her unfortunate death, but focuses on her first steps as an artist, as well as at the beginning of his rise to stardom; However, season two will focus on the artist’s legacy, what it meant to her fans, and how painful and heartbreaking her death was.
The show is highly recommended for all those who want to see a new version of the story, although it is true that what we see on it may not surprise those who are very familiar with the singer’s life, it is definitely worth seeing a different version with the Netflix production in between, plus, it may turn out to be very interesting for those who do not know the history of this iconic artist.
