“We are making music
for the human race and even beings from other galaxies are welcome to vibe with
us.

Mi Gente is a
universal movement. Lego”
J Balvin

“For a French producer to make it to the very top of
the Spotify global chart in just 4 weeks is a magical feeling. I am so thankful
that Mi Gente was able to reach so many people all over the world.”
Willy William

“Global audiences embrace Latin sounds. Colombia and
France bring the world closer together in record time, keeping up with the
spectacular Latin music’s momentum”

“With Mi Gente’s new #1 milestone,
it’s safe to say that Latin music is not just having a moment, but
solidifying itself through a new wave of genres, styles and
cultures. 
We are grateful to be able to provide a platform that
connects artists and fans worldwide through something
as universal as music
.”

Following the groundbreaking success of his Latin Grammy winning Energia album (certified as the #1/most consumed Latin album of 2016), and the second-generation reggaeton sound he has pioneered skyrocketing around the world, J BALVIN has added to his distinguished collaboration list (Justin Bieber, Pharrell Williams, Major Lazer & more) by teaming with famed French artist/DJ/producer WILLY WILLIAM for the dynamic new single “Mi Gente” (My
People)
. The Colombian superstar has already notched seven #1 singles, multiple video view records -including the first Latin-Urban track to exceed a billion views, and he holds a Guinness World Record for “the longest stay at No.1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart ever by a single artist.”.Now, with “Mi Gente” surging to the #1 spot on Spotify’s Global 200 Chart, and into the U.S. Top-10 just over four weeks after release, J Balvin and Willy William’s unique fusion championing inclusiveness is quickly shaping up to be one of the biggest songs of 2017. After also setting a new record for debut views of a Latin Music video (15 Million in 24 hours) , and being confirmed as one of YouTube’s Top-5 debuts of the year, regardless of language, the engaging video for “Mi Gente”, has notched over 250 Million views, averaging over 55 million a week . Numerous U.S. English Top-40 Stations, including influential Z-100 in New York
& Kiss-FM in Los Angeles have quickly added “Mi Gente” to rotation, and the track already reached the
#1 spot last
week in their nightly iHeart Radio Countdown.
Likewise, many of the world’s leading DJ’s have already started dropping “Mi Gente” remixes at EDM festivals, while fans across the world (including leading athletes, dancers, fellow musicians & more) are creating their own viral “Mi Gente” videos-most recently including Britney Spears.

Frequently praised within the European pop world, Willy William was the most Shazammed French artist in the world for 2016, and the social app’s #5 overall global artist. Willy’s recent singles have notched multiple gold, platinum and multi-platinum certifications across Europe, and with the theme song of the last football Euro Cup to his credit, William recently notched a rare double-diamond certification.  Willy William is signed to Scorpio Music, who has produced “Mi Gente” and the visually captivating video.
