Ven Conmigo (English: Come With Me) is the second studio album by Tejano singer Selena y Los Dinos. The album includes a musical variety of rancheras, cumbias, ballads, and pop.

A.B. Quintanilla, the producer, enlisted the participation of David Lee Garza, an accordion player for the title track, "Ven Conmigo". The group recorded "La Tracalera", a cover version of a song by the original Dinos, and "Aunque No Salga el Sol" in 1984. The song "Baila Esta Cumbia" was an instant success in the U.S. and crossed over later on to Mexico.[citation needed]

The album cover was photographed in black and white because Selena dyed her hair jet black the night before and got some on her face.

Ven Conmigo was Selena y Los Dinos's first Gold album.[citation needed] A remastered version was released in 2002.
