It’s like Beyoncé is coming back to us in small doses.
Since the birth of twins Rumi and Sir this summer, the Queen’s slowly picked back up her normal routine — first getting spotted at the gym, then a few public appearances, and just recently hitting the red carpet again. And now, finally, she’s back in the studio for the best possible reason!
The Lemonade singer just released her first track since the birth, and she’s announced that all the proceeds will go to disaster relief.
The song is a remix of J Balvin and Willy William’s "Mi Gente." The Latin theme isn’t a coincidence — on the Instagram post teasing the track, Bey captioned, “I am donating my proceeds from this song to hurricane relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico and the other affected Caribbean islands. To help go to Beyonce.com/reliefeffort.”
That link throws to a number of charities you can donate to, each targeted to a different disaster area. Mexico recently fell victim to a horrible earthquake that left over 300 dead; Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria, and a number of other Caribbean nations were beat up by storms as well.
It’s not all being funneled towards non-American organizations though. Beyoncé (unsurprisingly) is also sending help to the victims of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, which wrecked Florida and south Texas, respectively. The latter did huge amounts of damage to Bey’s hometown of Houston, and she’s actually been on the ground there to help out with the relief effort.
On a bittersweet sidesnote, many are quick to point out that Beyoncé is actually doing Trump’s job for him.
What do you think of the new track? And how long until Trump says something unnecessarily insulting about it?
