Beyonce Hits #1 On US iTunes With ‘Mi Gente’

Published: Friday 29th Sep 2017 by Sam

Beyonce is back in a familiar spot – the #1 spot.

Full story below…

The diva sprung a surprise on the masses when she announced and released a remix to J. Balvin and Willy William‘s ‘Mi Gente’ in support of hurricane victims.

And though it’s only been a few hours since the track’s surprise arrival, it appears the proposition of “new Beyonce” and charity is proving attractive to the record-buying public.

As at writing, Queen Bey’s take on ‘Mi Gente’ sits at #1 on US iTunes – and its popularity bar lead is growing by the hour.

Could this replicate said charting on the Billboard Hot 100? Time will tell, but given that it’s been put in power rotation on major radio stations such as Z100 and is selling well with the original and remix versions, the climate is looking positive.

Should it hit pole position, it’ll be Bey’s first #1 single since ‘Single Ladies’ in 2008. For what it’s worth, all of her albums have achieved the feat.

Anyway, what are…

Your thoughts?

  2. Kevon September 29, 2017

    It’s not her song .. so don’t try fooling people

    • TeaOnly September 29, 2017

      It’s currently #1 because of her. Stop downplaying her impact on the song pressed a s s hater!

      • tay September 29, 2017

        The song was a hit even before beyonce hopped on it!

        This fridays best new release is:
        Jay Sean ft DaVido – What you want !

    • Fancy BISH September 29, 2017

      Kevon tried it this morning lol

  3. Giga September 29, 2017

    LOL she is a feature. This is not her song. Let’s talk about all the songs she has been featured on that never broke the top 100.

    • SMH September 29, 2017

      Exactly lol.

      • The Wig Snatcher September 29, 2017

        Stop hating. She’s almost 20 years in the game and has a #1 on iTunes. How many of her peers can say the same thing? With 19 years in the game, she had the most buzzed about album of 2016 that was a top-seller and highly awarded. How many of her peers can say that? Don’t be cünty.

      • SMH September 29, 2017

        Lol blah blah blah. It’s not her song. And her million other features never charted. Try again when she hits #1 ON HER OWN.

    • Justme September 29, 2017

      Then if we are doing that then how many #1’s does rihanna actually have. Cuz at least half are features..

  4. Anthony September 29, 2017

    Another Day. Another Slay

  5. DanYiel Iman September 29, 2017

    Did we expect anything less? ???

  6. SMH September 29, 2017

    Another day, another delusion. It’s not her song. Like when tgj credited Drake for hitting #1 with Rihanna’s song ‘Work’. Nice try tho, call me when she can hit #1 ON HER OWN.

    • RealNegro September 29, 2017

      She could if she don’t sabatoge with Tidal and abandon Spotify.

      • Fancy BISH September 29, 2017

        Thank goodness this song is on Spotify tho! I’mma stream da hell out of it too

    • Belladonna September 29, 2017

      Well the song wasn’t no where near the Top10 let alone Number1 before Bey so yeah lol Plus that’s like saying JustinBieber didn’t make Despacito a number1 hit. She normally doesn’t make music that Top40 likes but she is the most famous women in the world so if you put that with at hit song fire!

  7. WRTW? September 29, 2017

    This is Beyoncés song, are we gonna sit up here and act like she just didn’t serve us vocals in Spanish and English. And more than that this is for charity. The Queen Gives, now shut up and stream #Beygood

  8. The Wig Snatcher September 29, 2017

    The Beyoncé Impact will NEVER slow down. Go Yoncé

  9. Meme September 29, 2017

    For the ppl saying this isn’t her song. Let’s give props where due. The song is hot because of her. I know I wouldn’t have download it if she wasn’t featured. I’m not a fan of hers now a days but I love this record.

    • Adele4Life September 29, 2017

      You do realize the song had 900 Million views on youtube already right?
      More than ANY Beyoncé song.
      It was already at 46Million audience at radio and gaining about 2Million impression per day.

      She just pulled a Justin Bieber by jumping on a song that was already on track to be a major hit.

      Her name just accelerated something that was already happening.

      • Meme September 29, 2017

        Oh that I didn’t notice. So it was huge prior to her?

  10. TheRealDeal September 29, 2017

    It may not be her song. BUT it is currently sitting at #1 because of her featuring on it.
    The track was successful, and it’s a smash hit worldwide, but she pushed it to #1 on iTunes whether you like it or not.
    The original version didn’t make it to the top spot.
    This is not even about liking her. Just facts. Deal with it. I would have said the very same thing regardless of who would have featured on it and pushed it to #1.

  11. Belladonna September 29, 2017

    I wanted her part to be better but All in all its good & she made me like a song I didn’t care for so good job Bey. Wow this year is turning up Taylor & Bey is hitting number1 Icons are in the building!

  12. Nico September 29, 2017

    I like the remix

  13. Adele4Life September 29, 2017

    I guess she was desperate to get that quick lil hit single after all.

    • RealNegro September 29, 2017

      Damn a b ytch can’t do a feature without the hate!

    • SpaceRocket September 29, 2017

      She put out a song and said the proceeds are going to charity’s for PR and Mexico. Idk how you call that Desperate. I mean she and a lot of celebrities are doing more than our own President. So please have several seats and stop hating

  14. RealNegro September 29, 2017

    I just listened to it. I like it. Top 5 song at the least!

  15. fatusankoh September 29, 2017

    I love the song I can’t wait to buy good luck queen Bey

  16. SMH September 29, 2017

    It’s not her song. You roaches know damn well if it was Rihanna you would not be giving her credit, like when Wild Thoughts hit #1 the bugs kept saying it’s Khaled’s song not Rihanna’s. So beyonce will get the same treatment.

    It’s not her song.

    • Anne September 29, 2017

      Most people consider Wild Thoughts a Rihanna song just like this will be considered a Beyonce song regardless of who complains about it. I never even heard of it until now.

  17. Tokyo Vanity fan September 29, 2017

    Off topic, but Tokyo put her new mixtape out “Konnichiwa”. It’s fire!

  18. MessyJessy September 29, 2017

    Wild Thoughts never went #1 on anyone’s billboard chart….

    • Meme September 29, 2017

      No one said wild thoughts went #1 on billboard. Read bish. They said iTunes. It was #2 on billboard. Still higher than anything your fav put out the last 6 yrs.

      • SdotB September 29, 2017

        They didn’t say iTunes either…they just said “when Wild Thoughts went #1″…read bish…

      • B2B September 30, 2017

        But BIITCH, DRUNK IN LOVE WENT #2 in 2014 try again! Ho asss!! Wild Thoughts was discounted to $.69 and still remained at #2! Just how Taylor’s LWYMMD is .69 as well as Bodak Yellow. Discount that shitt to make it hit #1. Not my Queen!

  19. 1981 September 29, 2017

    She’s Back!!! OVER…

    • Jasmine September 29, 2017

      Bey never left in my opinion. Queen B always has something new for her fans to buy. That is why she is Queen B.

  20. Bardi Gangsta September 29, 2017

    This has potential for her to get another number one even as a feature. Or at least another top ten. I know ‘Mi Gente’ was like in the top 30 or something like that last time I checked. that plus Hispanic music has been really popular. Bey was smart with this. All they need is to do an official video for the remix and it’s a smash

  21. Danica KK September 30, 2017

    Just wanna say, it is not her song

    • Electrikblue September 30, 2017

      We know that bih! Read the billboard article she was asked by then to do it before the hurricanes happened. She did it because her daughter lives the original song. She seized the moment to donate proceeds to disaster stricken areas.

  22. Electrikblue September 30, 2017

    People think they know so much here’s how it really went down “Here’s How Beyonce Joined J Balvin & Willy William’s ‘Mi Gente’ – Billboard”

  23. Angello September 30, 2017

    iTunes is irrelevant in 2017

  24. MessyJessy October 6, 2017

    This song is still slaying the charts and the streams!!!!! IT WILL BLOW UP ON BILLBOARD
