Keke Palmer, a multi-talented star, is known for her acting prowess, having collaborated with some of the most prominent filmmakers in Hollywood. However, her talents don’t stop there. She’s also a singer, and over time, Palmer has demonstrated her remarkable performance skills, including her ability to flawlessly cover Selena’s iconic “Amor Prohibido.”
A recent video circulating online showcases Palmer belting out “Amor Prohibido.” “I’m going to serve you a slice of Selena, this one’s for you,” she declared, before launching into a spot-on rendition of the song. The internet was abuzz with praise for Palmer’s performance, particularly her impressive Spanish accent. One viewer humorously commented, “Keke just morphed into QueQue.”
This isn’t the first time Palmer has flaunted this specific talent. Back in 2019, while promoting the movie “Hustlers,” Palmer and Jennifer Lopez bonded over their mutual admiration for “Amor Prohibido.” The duo appeared on ABC’s “Strahan, Sara and Keke,” where Sara Haines encouraged Palmer to perform in front of Lopez. “You had a dream about singing in front of Jennifer… Let’s complete the circle, Kekes,” Haines suggested.
Initially, Palmer appeared a bit apprehensive, but she mustered the courage and delivered a fantastic performance. Lopez, visibly delighted, joined in, and the two shared a joyful moment. Later, Palmer took to Twitter to reminisce about the experience, giving a shout-out to Selena. “That movie was so special and still is. Long live Selena and all the hearts she touched,” she tweeted.
