Beyoncé Releases Remix of J Balvin’s “Mi Gente”, Donates Song Proceeds To Charities
New Reggaeton act J Balvin has skyrocketed to the top of the charts with his current hit single, “Mi Gente” featuring Willy Williams.
Today, the Colombian recording artist drops a massive exclusive remix as the current mega-star singer/actress Beyonce joins the song in support of natural disaster relief.
Beyonce informed her fans on her website about the new remix, telling fans that the proceeds from the remix will be donated to hurricane and earthquake relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico, and other affected Caribbean Islands.
Upon the release of the new version of the song, a video quickly followed, exclusively on Tidal, that features a worldwide all-star cast of celebrities dancing to the hit single.
Celebrities include soccer all-star Cristiano Ronaldo, DJ’s Martin Garrix, Diplo, and Steve Aoki, viral sensation Salice Rose, Victoria Secret’s Jasmine Tookes, and many more.
The original track was release back in June. Mi Gente is the third fastest song to reach 500 million views on YouTube, and currently exceeds750 million while resting in the top five of Spotify’s Global Top 50 chart.
Mi Gente is a remake of Willy Williams’ prior song, “Voodoo Song”, a song that was released two months before Mi Gente.
J Balvin is currently on the U.S. leg of his Energia Tour, with seven sold out concerts in Atlanta, San Jose, Los Angeles, Miami, and Houston.
