The meeting of the singer and the future superstar did actually happen, with Beyoncé revealing in an interview once: “I did actually meet Selena in The Galleria mall in Houston, but I didn’t say much to Selena because I wasn’t a celebrity and I just saw her and said, ‘Hello’ and kept it moving.
“Definitely growing up in Texas, I heard her on the radio and I think listening to her album, even though I didn’t know exactly what she was singing, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation. … I think she is a legend and I admire her.”
She continued: “And she was so talented, so I’m very happy that even though she didn’t know who I was, I’m still so excited that I got that opportunity.”
Selena: The Series is available on Netflix.
