I'm trying to fill the blank label with a phrase when the dropdown is equal to SI, but it doesn't work and I don't understand why?

I put If(Dropdown1.SelectedText="SI";"¿Desde cuándo se está prestando?"), but Power Apps show me the same error incompatible type for comparison, cannot compare the types, Record, Text.

Which option I have to select "Text"; "OnSelect"; "Fill"? and then write the formula?
