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

The power of Beyonce.

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.
