All the proceeds from the remix will be used to help those affected by recent natural disasters.
Beyoncé has teamed up with Colombian star J Balvin on a remix of his already wildly successful song. The original “Mi Gente” video has already racked up nearly 900,000,000 views on YouTube since being released in June. In less than 24 hours, the remixed version has already broken 1,000,000 views. The song is being used to raise money to help the people that have been affected by the recent natural disasters in the Caribbean and Mexico. When the song was released, Beyoncé announced that all the proceeds she makes from the song will be going to help Puerto Rico, Mexico, and the other Caribbean islands suffering right now. She has also set up a separate fundraising effort here.
Beyoncé broke the news of her collaboration with J Balvin in one of her funky videos on Instagram.
Beyoncé sings in both English and Spanish on the song, which is accompanied by a compilation video of people dancing to the original.
