“No Me Queda Más” (“There’s Nothing Left for Me”) is a song by American
recording artist Selena for her fourth studio album, Amor Prohibido
(1994). Written by Ricky Vela and produced by Selena’s brother A.B.
Quintanilla, it was released as the third single from the album in
October 1994 by EMI Latin. It is a downtempo mariachi and pop ballad
that portrays a woman who wishes the best for her former lover despite
her own agony. Praised by music critics for its raw emotion, “No Me
Queda Más” was one of the most successful singles of Selena’s career,
topping the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart for seven non-consecutive
weeks. It was the Song of the Year at the 1995 Broadcast Music Awards
and became the most successful US Latin single of 1995. Billboard
magazine ranked it ninth on a list of Tejano recordings. A music video,
shot in San Antonio’s Amtrak station, received the Music Video of the
Year award at the Billboard Latin Music Awards. Many musicians have
recorded cover versions, including Mexican singer Pepe Aguilar, American
salsa singer Tito Nieves, and Mexican pop group Palomo.
