Ricky Vela is a known American musician, songwriter, and keyboardist.

The Selena Y Los Dinos was composed of family members, and Ricky Vela was the first non-family member to join the band. Because of the different shows and gigs they performed, he grew close with the family, and he, later on, fell in love with Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla. 

The whole Quintanilla family knew about his feelings and would be delighted if Suzette became Ricky Vela’s wife. They all pushed him to confess to her, but because he was an introvert and often shy, he never got to take his feelings across. 

As Katy Perry would say, Suzette Quintanilla, is The One That Got Away in his life. Suzette’s title as Ricky Vela’s wife remains fictitious because their love story ended before it even started. Due to that, Suzette became wife to Billy Arriaga instead of being Ricky Vela’s wife. 

When he received the news about her wedding, he was devastated and wrote No Me Queda Mas (There’s Nothing Left For Me) for his longtime crush, Suzette. After that heartbreak, a girl was never mentioned in his life until now.
