J Balvin and Willy William’s “Mi Gente” is a great hit and Beyonce agrees!
The track was released last June but got a special surprise remix release from the queen herself on September 28. Beyonce lent her vocals to “Mi Gente” in an effort to help hurricane affected areas by donating all the proceeds to relief charities in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean Islands.
A video featuring an array of different artists, celebrities and fan-made videos was released along with the track. From music to sports through YouTube personalities, the visual features Diplo, Brazilian singer Anitta, Cristiano Ronaldo with his son, Marcelo, Neymar, DJs Martin Garrix and David Guetta, YouTuber Lele Pons, etc. Beyonce doesn’t appear in the video except where her head floats above her lyrics with some references to her own music.
Also, is that Blue Ivy replying to her mom when she asks “Azul, are you with me?” because that was adorable!
You can find the list of charities Beyonce compiled on her website here.
