He Trained Beyonce To Sing In Spanish For ‘Mi Gente’ But He Gives Blue Ivy All The Credit For Making It Happen

Coast City is a Latin music duo made up of Jean Rodriguez, Luis Fonsi’s brother, and Danny Flores, a Sony music artist and producer. The two have been behind the albums of some of Latin music’s most celebrated acts including Prince Royce and CNCO. But, Rodriguez has another point of pride in music…

Jean Rodriguez, member of Coast City, is responsible for Beyoncé’s part in the “Mi Gente” remix.

“I didn’t know I was working with her until day of because they kept everything under wraps,” Rodriguez says. “That was interesting because it added to the butterflies because I had no idea who I was working with.”

All Rodriguez knew was that he was going to be working with someone who was massive in the music world. But there was one thing he was about to learn and that’s that Blue has a lot of pull when it comes to her mom’s projects.

“The deal maker, the decision was actually Blue [Ivy],” Rodriguez says.

“I’m not sure about right now but at the time, ‘Mi Gente’ was her favorite song,” Rodriguez says. “She kept asking for it. Even when we recorded it, Blue was there during the session just jumping around and dancing. She was really the decision maker.”

Blue was so instrumental in getting Beyoncé on the ‘Mi Gente’ remix that she was given a shoutout in the song.

Rodriguez explains that the line, “Azul are you with me” is in honor of Blue getting her mom to sign on for the project.

“I would give her a high-five right now,” Danny Flores says about convincing Blue convincing Beyoncé to work a single that would help so many people. “I’m sure she just loved the song. It’s song that kids get into so I would definitely give her a high-five.”

This isn’t the first time Coast City has worked close with J Balvin.

Flores and Rodriguez were there to help produce “Hey Ma” with Camila Cabello, J Balvin, and Pitbull for “Fate of the Furious.”

There is one thing in music that is not up for debate: the Camilizer fandom is one of the strongest. No matter what the pop star is doing, her fans will always show up with full support on social media and irl. That fandom is making power moves again now that Cabello’s new collab “Señorita” with Shawn Mendes is out. In less than 24 hours, the video already had 14 million views.

Camila Cabello got her fandom ready with one tweet and it worked.

Cabello’s Twitter is a powerful tool. When she tweets, her millions of followers listen. It is clear that she has learned how to harness social media for the betterment of her career and it is paying off. Tbh, she kind of deserves the success she has garnered so far. Like, she skipped her quinces so she could audition for the X Factor and the rest is music history.

Cabello stans are here to tell you that “Señorita” is a song that is here to stay.

No one is surprised to hear that Cabello was able to put out a hit. She is proving herself as a powerful musician. We still can’t get “Havana” out of our heads and it has been out for two years.

Like, this is what the Camilizer fandom is doing the rest of the weekend with this song in the background.

Low key, a lot of people will be giving this song all of their streams this weekend. Who wouldn’t want to spend the next couple days bouncing to this song?

People are crying over the new song because they have been waiting for new music.

Take some deep breaths and relax. You don’t want to miss any of the music or video because you can’t see or hear over your own sobs. Is it even worth listening if you are crying so intensely?

Fans had theories about how the singers prepared for their intimate moments on screen.

Obviously, you wouldn’t want to have bad breath when you have to kiss someone over and over again. It is also kind of cute that Mendes was so concerned that he ate mints to make sure he had good breath for Cabello.

The video and the passion between the singers is reigniting speculation that they are secretly more than friends.

Some people might call it good acting and on-screen chemistry. Camilizers call it them sharing their truth while hiding behind the facade of music and the arts. Whichever it is, they know how to make a convincing couple on the screen.

Here is the full video for Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’s “Señorita.”

Congrats, you two. Seems like you really did the thing with this video.
