Beyonce releases surprise remix to J Balvin's Mi Gente and will donate all proceeds to hurricane relief efforts
Beyonce has joined forces with J Balvin and Willy Williams for a new version of Mi Gente in support of hurricane relief efforts.
The singer, who sings in both English and Spanish on the track, is donating her proceeds from the song to charities including CEMA, UNICEF and Somos Una Voz for Puerto Rico, Mexico and other affected Caribbean islands.
It’s her first song since welcoming her twins back in June.
“I am donating my proceeds from this song to hurricane relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico and the other affected Caribbean islands,” she announced with a series of colourful Instagram posts and a video clip on Thursday night.
The original version, which pairs Colombian singer Balvin with French artist/producer Williams, was originally released in June and ended the 14-week reign of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s Despacito atop Spotify’s Global chart.
Balvin, who has been collaborated with recording artists from all genres including Justin Bieber, has millions of followers as does Beyonce with 106 million followers on Instagram alone.
One online Beyonce fan simply wrote, “Super duper shook. She is queen.”
Kim Kardashian also announced she would be donating all money from the sales of her Vogue Mexico cover to those affected by the devastating earthquake that took place in Mexico earlier this month.
“My Vogue Mexico cover comes out today! Proceeds of the magazine sales will be going towards Mexico earthquake relief through Project Paz,” Kim tweeted on Thursday.
She continued: “If you want to help, please consider making a donation to @ProjectPaz, who give every dollar raised to the victims.”
