Breaking Social Media Public Service Announcement On  Another J Balvin Genre-Blending Remix Arriving This Friday:

 “J Balvin‘s team showed their hand yesterday on their next global collaboration. The Colombian pop star has picked up on MC Fioti’s “Bum Tam,” a baile funk crusher that builds off of none other than a Johann Sebastian Bach flute sample (“Partita in a Minor for Solo Flute,” to be exact). But it wasn’t enough just for the reggaeton boss to hop on the Brazilian dance floor favorite, whose video is already clocking in at around 473 million views. According to Balvin’s Instagram leak, the remix will also features trap superstar Future, British-Jamaican emcee Stefflon Don, and Spanish singer-producer Juan Magan…Balvin is becoming an expert in orchestrating these trilingual team ups. Atlanta rap god Future makes an appearance on the track, another sign that mainstream hip-hop is turning its attention to Latin American pop stars” – Remezcla

J Balvin & Willy William’s “Mi Gente,” featuring Beyoncé, is the No. 2 Hot Latin Songs title of 2017. The song hit No. 1 on the Oct. 21-dated list, and continued atop the tally on into the 2018 chart year. (Watch this space in Dec. 2018: “Mi Gente” just might be among the year’s biggest songs two years in a row.)”- Billboard

 

Best Songs of 2017:  ‘J Balvin & Willy William, Mi Gente’ – Willie William drops an infectiously forlorn synth-horn riff and rattling beat, while Colombian reggaeton star J Balvin campaigns on an all-inclusive, no-borders party platform.” – Rolling Stone

 

“Few sounds were as gratifying [at] pop radio in 2017 as the moaning, disembodied vocal loop and vinyl crackle that introduce “Mi Gente.” Borrowed from Willy William’s original “Voodoo Song,” J Balvin took that song’s absolutely unstoppable reggaeton bounce and turned it into a global anthem, with a chorus that sounds like a club rallying cry, even if you don’t understand what Balvin’s “¿Y dónde está mi gente?” is literally asking. (“Where are my people?,” natch). The song topped Spotify’s international charts for weeks well before Beyoncé jumped on the remix, but the Queen slotted in perfectly to the song’s already-regal procession, adding timeliness in her galvanizing of relief efforts for her hurricane-struck H(ome)-town. The duo even left the perfect amount of room for their special guest in the second-verse roll call — “J. Balvin. Willy William. Beyoncé.” — before yelling “FREEZE!” on one of 2017’s most iconic moment-in time musical snapshots.”-Billboard
