The EP begins with the title track, which features a cumbia-banda twist. 

On the tracks, which include “Como La Flor,” “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” “Amor Prohibido” and others, Aguilar adds her own flair of cumbia, mariachi or banda music while keeping the songs’ essence intact. 

“I present this EP as a tribute and in gratitude to Selena,” Aguilar wrote on Instagram. “With an admiration of a Mexican / American woman who, along with her family, expressed her love for music and the stage through her dances and songs. I wish I could take your music to more girls who didn’t have the opportunity to listen to it.” 

The set wraps up with a sweet mariachi-pop medley of “I Could Fall in Love” and “Dreaming of You,” where Aguilar proudly flaunts her powerhouse vocals. 

The release of Baila Esta Cumbiacomes a little bit more than two months ahead of the 25th anniversary of Selena‘s death on March 31.
