After Quintanilla’s death, she became known as the “Queen of Tejano” and won many posthumous awards and honors that broke new records.

When it comes to sales “The music industry is a Superstar economy… the top 1% account for 77% of all artist recorded music income” (Mulligan). Artists who would fall under this 1% criteria mostly belong to the pop genre, such as Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, and so on. Notwithstanding drama-related reductions in popularity, artists such as these, and several others of “superstar” status, are the ones providing a great deal of the profits for the pop industry.
