The Song Review
The famous Columbian vocalist J Balvin and French singer Willy William collaborated and created a masterpiece. Mi Gente means “My People.” It was bound to make a mark and took the charts in all of Latin America. Moreover, it ranked on the Billboard’s Hot 100.
This number went on to redefine electronic and afro-beat with a Spanish touch. The best thing is that the world quickly picked it up. Although it was in Spanish, it still managed to turn heads. Still, Spanish is not a mainstream and global language; people embraced the song.
Transcending Beyond the Borders with Music
Mi Gente was more than just a song. Its scope is more than a mere EDM to a dance-off. In fact, the song was meant to erase the differences. When it was released, it was high time as Donald Trump’s hatred towards Mexicans was peaking. He made very disgraceful remarks about Spanish people. Moreover, he planned to build a wall on the border of the U.S. and America.
J Balvin and Willy William realized the need for something that would erase the borders. The music stood as the best option. After all, music holds the potential to unite people. Balvin took inspiration from Trump’s announcement of mounting a wall on the American and Mexican border.
Both the artists envisioned a number that would unite people rather than divide them. It will not be wrong to call it a unity anthem. Mi Gente translates to “My People” in English. Balvin dedicated the song to his people living across the globe. However, a massive count of people just loved the song despite the song being in Spanish.
Mi Gente is an anthem about shared cultural unity and pride.
Mi Gente Beyoncé’s Version
Balvin and William took another take on the Mi Gente song. This time the song featured none other than Beyoncé. The new version was released on September 27, 2017. This version topped the Hot Latin Charts.
The new version of the song was very meaningful. This is because Beyonce donated all the royalties and earnings to the relief fund for hurricanes and earthquake damage. Beyoncé’s version of the music video got over 100 million views on YT.
