The song could also dethrone "Despacito" after 35 weeks at No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs.
J Balvin and Willy William's "Mi Gente," now featuring Beyonce, looks set to leap into the Billboard Hot 100 chart's top 10, following a first full week of tracking for its new remix with the featured superstar.
On the next Hot 100 (dated Oct. 21), the song should soar to the top 10 (from No. 21 on the Oct. 14 tally, after reaching No. 19 so far), with across-the-board gains. Highlights of next week's Hot 100, which blends streaming, airplay and sales data, according to Nielsen Music, will post on Billboard.com Monday (Oct. 9).
Based on preliminary data for the tracking week, "Mi Gente" could draw over 20 million U.S. streams and 40 million in radio audience and reign as the top-selling song of the week (ending Oct. 5) with over 70,000 downloads sold, with the bulk from its Beyonce remix. Prior to the addition of Beyonce, the track ranked at No. 34 on the Oct. 14-dated Digital Song Sales chart (after reaching No. 22), with 15,000 sold in the week ending Sept. 28.
