3. "Mi Ex Tenía Razón"
Karol continues to explore different genres on the album in her 3rd track “Mi Ex Tenía Razón”, where the Colombian singer ventures into a folkloric genre. Karol goes on to not only dedicate but claim the song is inspired by the late singer Selena Quintanilla.

The song tells a story on how Karol’s ex was indeed right -- she couldn’t find another man like him; instead she found someone better!

"S91" will have you crying in the club.
