She quickly became one of the most popular artists in Tejano music, a genre that was traditionally male dominated. She got bigger exposure with her breakthrough album Entre a Mi Mundo in 1992, which made her don a crossover into more mainstream Latin pop. The success of that album and the next one made her incredibly popular in the North-American Hispanic market, even doing special appearances in Mexican telenovelas.

Her last album, Dreaming of You , a crossover into the English market that she had wanted to do since the beginning of her career, was released posthumously. A film about her life and death, also called Selena. was released in 1997.
