Keke Palmer covering Selena’s “Amor Prohibido” at Comic-Con is all we need

Keke Palmer is making quite a name for herself as an actor. From Akeelah in Akeelah and the Bee, to Chilli in VH1’s TLC biopic, and now as the intelligent and strong-willed Zayday Williams in Scream Queens.


Palmer is also a singer, though her acting career has taken priority lately.

But in an interview at San Diego’s Comic-Con, Palmer demonstrated both her singing prowess, Spanish-speaking skills, stellar taste in music, and great love for the hugely missed Selena Quintanilla-Perez with an impromptu cover of “Amor Prohibido.”


Palmer broke out in Selena’s classic 1994 hit when she was asked which song she performs best at karaoke. (Such a perfect choice). The interviewer didn’t immediately recognize the song from Palmer’s stunning cover, but we’ll let it slide.

Please feel free to release a Selena cover album any time, Keke.
