"Dame un beso" (English Translation: Give Me a Kiss) is a song written by A.B. Quintanilla and Ricky Vela who were both in the band at the time.[1] Selena's brother "AB Quintanilla" was tired of the same old songs that his father would choose and write that AB took over and wrote almost all of Selena's songs.[2] "Dame Un Beso" was released on Selena's third album Alpha in 1986 from "Manny Labels".[2] Soon after its released, Selena then 15 appeared on the Tejano Music Awards that same year and won an award for both "Female Vocalist of the year" and "Performer of the year"[citation needed]. For that success "Dame Un Beso" was released as a vinyl, LP, and EP in 1986. Selena's third album Alpha led Selena to win the award for "Female Vocalist of the Year" at 1987 Hispanic Music Awards. "Dame Un Beso" has been released since after Selena's death in 1995. Selena's father still released the song in today's albums.[3]
