In addition to the doodled art piece, the tribute includes a play icon that when clicked plays Selena's hit "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" and displays an animation that takes you on a short minute and thirty second journey through her career.
The Global Marketing Lead for Google Doodles, Perla Campos, gave an exclusive interview to Billboard about the display that comes in the middle of Hispanic Heritage Month.
She also published a write up shouting out Selena and giving an in depth look into Selena's history and background. Campos also wrote of how Selena influenced her life and the affect Selena's legacy has had on her.
"Today we celebrate Selena Quintanilla: Mexican-American music & entertainment icon, fashion trendsetter, passionate entrepreneur, community philanthropist, and one of the people who taught me growing up that no matter who you are or where you come from, anything is possible," the article said.
So put on your headphones and get ready to bop to one of Selena's biggest hits in Google's first-ever Selena Quintanilla Google Doodle.
