Siempre Selena combines remixes of recordings Selena made as a teenager with a couple of later, previously unreleased tracks. Like Dreaming of You, the 1995 album that documented her final English-language recording sessions and added some concurrent Latin hits. It features the romantic mariachi song "Siempre Hace Frio" which went to number two on Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks. It also includes a remix of "No Quiero Saber" which was featured on the official Latin album for the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. Also on the album is a new version of the song "Tu Robaste Mi Corazon" with the male vocals now sung by Pete Astudillo rather than Emilio Navaira.
