Beyonce’s “Mi Gente” Remix Rockets Up The Hot 100

The power of Beyonce.

Queen Bey wanted her very own "Despacito," and she's got it. The Grammy award winning singer hopped on a remix of J Balvin and Willy William’s “Mi Gente” last week, and her magic touched helped the track jump from No. 21 to No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. There's no signs of slowing down, either.

Here are some numbers jargon via Billboard:

4-1 on Digital Song Sales (79,000 sold, up 436 percent, with 87 percent of its sales from its new remix) and 14-5 on Streaming Songs (28.7 million, up 50 percent), while also climbing 32-29 on Radio Songs (46 million, up 18 percent).

However, she was no match for Cardi B. Cardi's "Bodak Yellow," which topped the chart for a third consecutive week, giving her a new longevity record for a hit by an unaccompanied female rapper.

I have a feeling Bey will get that No. 1 sooner than later, though.
