Beyonce is out with a new single and music video, her first since giving birth to twins in June, and it's all to benefit hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. The song is a remix of J Balvin and Willy William's "Mi Gente," and Beyonce announced on social media and her website that her proceeds would benefit those relief efforts as well as relief efforts in Mexico after the recent devastating earthquake. Beyonce's husband, Jay-Z, is also helping with relief efforts in Puerto Rico via his streaming service Tidal, E! reports. The company is sending a cargo plane with supplies to the island and is planning future deliveries as well; Tidal is also hosting an Oct. 17 benefit concert to raise funds for hurricane and earthquake relief efforts.
