J Balvin Says 'Mi Gente' Is 'Just the Beginning' of the Latin Takeover, Talks Working With Beyonce

Backstage at the One Voice: Somos Live! event on Saturday, Billboard spoke with Latin singer J Balvin about his hit single "Mi Gente," which he calls a "love song."

"It's about no discrimination for my people," he said. Balvin also mentioned how this is "just the beginning" of the Latin takeover, making a reference to the summer's chart-topping hit "Despacito."

"[Mi Gente] got No. 1 globally without any feature but when Beyonce jumped on the remix makes it more special," he explained. "It wasn't strategy, it just happened."
