Ven Conmigo (En:Come With Me) was the third album released by rising Latina superstar Selena, on November 12, 1990 for the CAPITOL/EMI Latin label. This album, was the first to market Selena as a solo artist, no longer identifying her albums, with Selena Y Los Dinos, though they were still very much a part of the mix. The album itself sold 50,000 units in America, and was certified Gold by the RIAA. Another 242,802 copies were sold on Amazon.com, verifed from their sellers rank.
The group re-recorded "La Tracalera", a cover version of a song by the original Dinos, as well as "Aunque No Salga El Sol" which they had originally recorded, in 1984. The song "Baila Esta Cumbia" was an instant hit in the U.S., and later crossed over to Mexico. Ven Conmigo was the group's first Gold album.
