Beyoncé added her voice to the hit song Mi Gente on Thursday and said proceeds would go to disaster relief efforts in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and other Caribbean islands.

The Colombian and French duo's hit has become one of the most successful fully Spanish-language songs in the US ever. As of this week, it had reached No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100, and it had more than 890 million views on YouTube.

The new song comes as Beyoncé has been raising money for hurricane relief under her #BEYGOOD banner.
