Album Notes and Credits
Notes & Personnel Info
|Released in 1995, the same year she was tragically shot, DREAMING OF YOU was the first of Selena's posthumous releases. Prior to her death, Selena had been something of a cultural icon in Latino communities, admired as much for her status as a positive cultural role model as for her breezy, catchy dance-pop.|
|Like many of Selena's albums, DREAMING OF YOU balances ballads with bouncy, Latin-inflected grooves, a combination that had gained her popularity with young Latino listeners and traditional Tejano fans alike. The news of the singer's death brought her music to wider attention among North American audiences, so the album struck a chord across different cultural communities, a fact reinforced, no doubt, by the album's mix of Spanish and English lyrics, and her duet with David Byrne on "God's Child."|

- 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "...Any of her five English-language ballads on DREAMING OF YOU could've been made for a sweet VH1 crossover..."
- "[A] multiplatinum marvel....It definitely maps out the sainted singer's omnivorous appetite."
- "...Whether belting out traditional ballads or tropical fantasies, Selena evokes lust and passion..." - Rating: B
- "...at once a brief recap of her cumbia-flavored, Tex-Mex excellence and a poignant glimpse of the exploratory English-language path her career was beginning to take....her musical language flowed between South American cumbia, Caribbean reggae/dancehall, and...a kind of Latino urban contemporary..."
Customer Reviews of Dreaming Of You (Bonus Tracks)
Dreaming of You is the highly-anticipated release from murdered singing sensation Selena, who was tragically shot to death by her fan club president on March 31, 1995. Months later EMI Records released her to-be English-language debut and it skyrocketed to No. 1 (becoming the first Tejano album to reach No. 1 on American music charts), and broke sales records while introducing Selena to a whole new audience. Dreaming features the English hits Selena had been recording for her crossover record, like "I Could Fall in Love," "Dreaming of You" and "Captive Heart." This CD is a must-have and an essential recording from an essential, superlative artist who not only opened up the market for Latin-Americans, but continues to be one of the most influential and noteworthy performers in music today.
