Beyonce lends her voice to hurricane relief efforts


BEYONCE lent her voice to hurricane relief efforts by featuring on a remix of J. Balvin and Willy Williams' new song Mi Gente.

The 36-year-old powerhouse sings on the Spanish track, with proceeds made from the single going to hurricane relief efforts for those recovering from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.

Beyonce, who hasn't released any new music since the birth of twins Sir Carter and Rumi in June, said in a statement: "I am donating my proceeds from this song to hurricane relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico, and the other affected Caribbean islands."

While the lyrics Beyonce sings are in Spanish, they translate as: "With mine, everyone moves, I have the party in my genes, I am the queen of the children, My people do not stop, nobody here wants to go, If the rhythm is in your head, Now let go and move your feet, I love it when the bass sounds, We started to level up."

After revealing news of the track, Beyonce shared a video of herself dancing along to the tune.

The single is the latest effort from Beyonce, who has been supporting hurricane victims through her BeyGood foundation.

She also took part in the Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief telethon on earlier this month, sending a pre-recorded message in which she shared her heartache at the devastation caused in Texas.
