A bevy of high-profile guests pops up on Amor, Familia y Respeto --Sheila E., Chris Perez, Nu Flavor, Fito Olivares, even talk-show host Cristina--but A.B. Quintanilla y los Kumbia Kings remain front and center on their inspired debut album. Much like he did with his late sister Selena, Quintanilla fuses the traditional cumbia sound with reggae, rap, rock, and dance music on songs such as "Azúcar," "Fuiste Mala," and "Reggae Kumbia," turning the Tejano sound on its head. The group also dabbles in old-school R&B on "Together," featuring vocals by the late Roger Troutman, and "U Don't Love Me," a silky crossover-hit ballad. Amor, Familia y Respeto also features "Oh No," a sweet cumbia cowritten by Selena that she never had the chance to record, but which her brother included here as a tribute. --Joey Guerra
