The Internet is still in shambles less than 24 hours after Beyoncé released another surprise track, this time in both English and Spanish featuring her eldest child, Blue Ivy.

They appear on a remix of “Mi Gente” by J Balvin and Willy William. The track is being used to benefit disaster relief in multiple areas of dire need.

“I am donating my proceeds from this song to hurricane and earthquake relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico, and other affected Caribbean islands. To help go to https://www.beyonce.com/reliefefforts/,” Bey wrote on Instagram as well as her website.

 

The original song “Mi Gente,” from the Colombian and French duo, has become one of the most successful fully Spanish-language songs in the US ever, according to Buzzfeed. It currently sits at No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100, and it had more than 890 million views on YouTube.

The Beyhive’s reaction to the remix is perhaps summed up by the tweet below:

The remix comes as Beyoncé has been raising money for hurricane relief in Florida and her hometown of Houston under her #BEYGOOD charity arm.

A video for Bey’s “Mi Gente” remix was also released last night, featuring various people dancing and the bobbing heads of Beyoncé, J Balvin, and Willy William bouncing on the written lyrics.
