J Balvin’s hit song ‘Mi Gente’ was the song of summer and now it’s gotten even better after Beyonce contributed her vocals to a new remix.
The track, which has been released to raise money for hurricane relief efforts, is the first one she’s brought out since she gave birth to twins Sir and Rumi in June.
Bey, who gives a shout-out to her hometown Houston on the remix, can be heard singing in Spanish, English and French.
The singer revealed she was ‘heartbroken’ after Hurricane Irma and Maria devastated large areas of the Caribbean.
She wrote on her website: ‘We’re heartbroken by the hurricanes and earthquakes that have devastated families around the world.
‘There are many ways to help. We’ve listed a few organizations that are on the ground from Mexico to the Caribbean, lending a hand to those who need it most.’
Willy William also features on the track, with proceeds going to charities including CEMA, UNICEF and Somos Una Voz for Puerto Rico, Mexico, and other areas in the US affected by the hurricanes.
Beyonce also recently returned to Houston after Hurricane Harvey hit Texas.
She told a church congregation: ‘I just wanna say that I’m home. This church is my home. I was maybe nine or 10 years old the first time I sat there where my daughter is sitting. I sang my first solo here and I just wanna thank you for lifting my family up, for praying for me, and for being such an incredible example of what light and love is.’
The singer will be headlining a hurricane relief concert in Brooklyn next month with her husband Jay-Z.
