In 1989, Jose Behar, the former head of CBS Discos, signed Selena with EMI Latin, a record company founded by Behar. Selena became EMI Latin's first artist. Behar later said that the reason he signed Selena was because he thought he had discovered the next Gloria Estéfan.
Also there were reggaeton artists like DJ Flex and Tito el Bambino under this label. In 2009, EMI Latin ended its partnership with Televisa, moved from Miami to Los Angeles, and was renamed to Capitol Latin.
After Universal Music Group's acquisition of EMI Music in 2012, Capitol Latin was merged with Universal Music Latin Entertainment. The Capitol Latin record label continues to be distributed by Universal Music Group.
