Selena-I Could Fall In Love (CD Single)-Frontal
"I Could Fall in Love"
is the first single by American singer Selena from her last studio album Dreaming of You, released in October 1995 by EMI International.

Song informationEdit

The track was written and produced by Keith Thomas and was selected as the first single to be released posthumously, after the singer's death in 1995. The song was very successful on the Latin market in United States, peaking at number 2 on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks, but was unable to chart on the Hot 100 due to the song not being physically released as a single, which was accomplished with the next English single from the album, the title track "Dreaming of You". It's possible that the song would have been able to reach the top spot on the Hot 100 had the physical release occurred.

This single has been covered by Jennifer Lopez — who portrayed the singer in the film Selena — as a tribute to Selena at her Puerto Rico concert Let's Get Loud in 2001. Additional performances have been made by Im Tae Kyung on his 2004 album "Sentimental Journey", Gloria Estefan for Selena ¡VIVE! in 2005, American Idol season 3 semifinalist Lisa Leuschner on the album Reality, and also by Latin star Ana on the album Amor Latino. Most recently, it has been covered by American Idol season 10 finalist Karen Rodriguez on top 13 week.

Critical receptionEdit

The song received very positive responses from critics. The song is also one of Selena's signature songs.

Music videoEdit

The video has clips of Selena's music videos, award ceremonies, concerts, and photos. It is the first single to be released posthumousy.
