by A.B. Quintanilla III


Item is available through our marketplace sellers.



A.B. Quintanilla is Selena's brother, so it only makes sense that his recordings cross the same boundaries between Tejano music and pop, dance, reggae, hip-hop, and R&B. His second album with los Kumbia Kings, SHHH!, largely continues in the vein of its predecessor, Amor Familia y Respeto, except for one major difference -- the album is split between English and Spanish tracks. Perhaps hoping for a crossover hit, Quintanilla keeps most of the English language material in an urban hip-hop soul vein, while the Spanish language tracks are more in the vein of his accessibly eclectic older work (and are tied together by a loose narrative). The two halves almost feel like different albums -- particularly since there isn't much Cumbia in the English stuff -- but Quintanilla is talented enough to come very close to pulling it off.
