American singer Selena has recorded material for her six LP records (five studio albums and one live album) and has collaborated with other artists for duets and featured songs on their respective albums and charity singles. After signing a record contract with Freddie Records in 1982,[1] Selena recorded 10 songs on her debut album, Selena y Los Dinos (1984). Her brother, who would later become her principal record producer, A.B. Quintanilla III, wrote two songs. Their father and manager, Abraham Quintanilla, Jr., wrote an additional two tracks. After being dropped from the label for being a woman in the male-dominated Tejano music genre,[1] Selena was later signed with Cara Records in 1985[2] and recorded 10 tracks, which remained unreleased. A year later, her brother wrote and co-wrote four songs on her 1986 record, Alpha, and band members Ricky Vela and Roger García wrote and co-wrote an additional four tracks. "Con Esta Copa", a cover by Abraham's band Los Dinos,[3] "Pero Cómo Te Ha Ido" and "Pa Que Me Sirve La Vida", were written by Johnny Herrera and Jesús Monge, respectively. The album also featured an instrumental track called "El Tejano", similar to "El Circo" found on Selena's third record Muñequito de Trapo (1987). A.B. wrote "Enamorada de Ti" with band member Pete Astudillo, while Vela wrote "Cuando Despierto". "A Million to One", a cover from American singer Jimmy Charles, was written by Phil Medley. Four out of the 10 tracks on And the Winner Is... (1987) were written by Selena y Los Dinos band members. Following this release, Preciosa (1988) and Dulce Amor (1988), were produced by A.B., who wrote most of the album's songs. Three covers, "Cien Años", "Siempre" and "Costumbres" were covers by Mexican singers Juan Gabriel and Pedro Infante, respectively.

In 1989, Selena signed a record contract with EMI Latin.[4] A.B. remained Selena's principal record producer[5] and wrote all the songs featured on the album, with the exception of "Contigo Quiero Estar", "My Love" and "Sukiyaki". The latter, which is a cover from Japanese crooner Kyu Sakamoto, was translated by Abraham and Astudillo. Selena wrote "My Love" and Mexican songwriter Alejandro Montealegre wrote "Contigo Quiero Estar". In 1990, A.B. wrote seven tracks on Selena's second studio album, Ven Conmigo, while "Aunque No Salga El Sol" and "La Tracalera" were originally recorded in 1985 under Cara Records.[6] In 1991, Salvadoran singer-songwriter Álvaro Torres wrote "Buenos Amigos" and asked Selena to be his love interest in the song.[7] Following Entre a Mi Mundo (1992), all songs were written by Selena y Los Dinos band members, including A.B., who wrote "Como La Flor", which became Selena's signature song and one of her most popular recordings.[8][9] In Selena Live!, three out of the 11 tracks were studio recordings; "No Debes Jugar", "La Llamada" and "Tú Robaste Mi Corazón" (a duet with American singer Emilio Navaira) were all written by A.B. and co-written by Astudillo and Vela, respectively. On Amor Prohibido (1994), the three number one US singles,[10] "No Me Queda Más", "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" and the title track became Selena's most popular songs[11][12] and were all written and co-written by A.B., Astudillo, Vela and Selena, respectively.[13] While the rest, excluding "Cobarde", were all written and co-written by Selena y Los Dinos band members. "Fotos y Recuerdos", which sampled American rock band The Pretenders 1982 song, "Back on the Chain Gang",[14] was written by their lead vocalist Chrissie Hynde with translation in Spanish by Vela. Selena was featured on the Barrio Boyzz' 1994 single "Donde Quiera Que Estés", which was written by K. C. Porter, Miguel Flores and Desmond Child.

On March 31, 1995, Selena was murdered by her friend and former employee, Yolanda Saldívar.[15] At the time of her death, Selena was working on releasing a cross over album that would propel her into mainstream English-language markets and expand her fan base, particularly among her English-language fans.[16][17] "I Could Fall in Love", the lead single from her crossover attempt, was written and produced by Keith Thomas, while "Dreaming of You" was written by Franne Golde and Tom Snow. Grammy Award-winning songwriter[18] Diane Warren wrote "I'm Getting Used to You", while Kit Hain wrote "Captive Heart". Two Spanish-language tracks, "Tú Sólo Tú" and "El Toro Relajo", were written by Felipe Valdés Leal and Felipe Bermejo, respectively. Selena was asked to record "God's Child (Baila Conmigo)", a duet with David Byrne, who also wrote the piece. "Only Love", written by Mark Spiro and Robbie Buchanan, was released on Selena's posthumous remix album, Siempre Selena (1996). Also released on the album, "Siempre Hace Frio", a mariachi-influence track,[19] was written by Cuco Sánchez. The soundtrack album to the biographical movie Selena, included the ballad "Where Did the Feeling Go?",[20] "Is It the Beat?" and the "Disco Medley". The latter, a cover version, was written by Norman Saleet for Australian singer Russell Hitchcock.[21] "Is It the Beat?", written by A.B. and Pamela Phillips Oland, and the "Disco Medley" were cover songs written by Frederick Perren, Dino Fekaris, Steve Greenberg, Paul Jabara, Van McCoy, Donna Summer, and Giorgio Moroder. Selena's charity effort, "A Boy Like That", which was a cover from the 1961 film adaptation of the West Side Story, was recorded to help raise funds for AIDS patients.[22] For the medley ballad,[23] "Con Tanto Amor Medley", A.B. used "Como La Flor", "Amor Prohibido" and "Si Una Vez" to create the song.[24] Selena's last known recording, "Puede Ser", a duet with Puerto Rican/Dominican singer Nando "Güero" Dominguez, was written by Selena's widower Chris Perez and A.B.[25] In 2005, A.B.'s band, Kumbia Kings, sampled "Baila Esta Cumbia", a song originally written by A.B. that featured Selena.[26] In Through the Years/A Traves de los Años (2007), Abraham included the track "Feelings", a 1978 song Selena recorded when she was six years old.[27]
