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