Drake pays tribute to Selena Quintanilla

Rapper Drake has paid tribute to Latin singer Selena Quintanilla nearly 20 years after her death.

The Fancy hitmaker took to Instagram.com to post several photos of himself in the recording studio wearing a white shirt with the Mexican-American icon's face airbrushed on it.


In one of the pictures, Drake wrote the caption, "They'll be talkin' 'til I meet Selena," a line from his OVO label rapper King Louie's track Til I Meet Selena.


According to Complex magazine, the tribute shirt was created by artist Darien Bruze as part of his Fallen Angels of R&B collection, which is slated to also include TLC's Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopez and Aaliyah.


Quintanilla was murdered on 31 March, 1995 at the age of 23 by the president of her fan club.
