Beyoncé Just Dropped A “Mi Gente” Remix To Benefit Mexico And Puerto Rico


Beyoncé added her voice to the hit song Mi Gente on Thursday and said proceeds would go to disaster relief efforts in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and other Caribbean islands.

 

“I am donating my proceeds from this song to hurricane and earthquake relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico and other affected Caribbean islands. To help go to https://www.beyonce.com/reliefefforts/,” she wrote on Instagram as well as her website.

The song came with a new video, featuring people dancing and the bobbing heads of Beyoncé, J Balvin, and Willy William guiding viewers through the lyrics.

 

The Colombian and French duo’s hit has become one of the most successful fully Spanish-language songs in the US ever. As of this week, it had reached No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100, and it had more than 890 million views on YouTube

The new song comes as Beyoncé has been raising money for hurricane relief under her #BEYGOOD banner.

The Houston native donated to relief efforts after Hurricane Harvey hit, and she encouraged her fans to do what they could to help.

“My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help,” she said in an August statement to the Houston Chronicle.

Since then, she’s expanded the scope of disaster relief efforts. On her website, she links to various organizations that are working on the ground in Mexico, the Caribbean, Florida, and Texas.

“We’re heartbroken by the hurricanes and earthquakes that have devastated families around the world,” the site says. “There are many ways to help. We’ve listed a few organizations that are on the ground from Mexico to the Caribbean, lending a hand to those who need it most.”

The Beyhive, obviously, loved her lyrics — in English and Spanish.
