Originally by J. Balvin and Willy William and released in June, the version with Beyonce’s feature is a new addition. The singer said she is donating her paycheck for the gig to others.

“I am donating my proceeds from this song to hurricane relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico and the other affected Caribbean islands,” the post said.

Beyonce has previously visited her hometown of Houston with her BeyGOOD Foundation and has made donations to Bread of Life, Inc., and the Greater Houston Community Foundation. She also sponsored a luncheon for hurricane survivors and served food to community members.
