Beyonce Drops Remix to J Balvin’s ‘Mi Gente’ to Benefit to Hurricane Maria Relief [LISTEN]
Beyoncé has just released a remix to J Balvin and Willy William’s “Mi Gente” and all money from the new single will go towards Hurricane Maria relief in areas hit hardest by the storm.
Bey posted the track on her Instagram with a message to fans.
“I am donating my proceeds from this song to hurricane relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico and the other affected Caribbean islands,” Bey wrote in the caption. “To help go to Beyonce.com/reliefefforts.”
Beyoncé has also supported relief efforts for Harvey victims over the past few weeks through her Bey Good foundation as well as during Bun B’s Hand in Hand telethon on Sept. 12, where she gave a rousing, emotional speech.
“During a time where it’s impossible to watch the news without seeing violence or racism in this country, just when you think it couldn’t possibly get worse, natural disasters take precious life, do massive damage and forever change lives, leaving behind contaminated water, flooded hospitals, schools and nursing homes,” said during the telethon, which earned an estimated $55 million. “Natural disasters don’t discriminate. They don’t see if you’re an immigrant, black or white, Hispanic or Asian, Jewish or Muslim, wealthy or poor. It doesn’t matter if you’re from [Houston neighborhoods] Third Ward or River Oaks, we’re all in this together.”
