At about 9 p.m. ET on Thursday night, as most of us were minding our own businesses, J Balvin dropped a remix of “Mi Gente” featuring Beyoncé. The song features Queen B singing in Spanish, and the internet collectively freaked out. It’s not the first time Bey sings in Spanish (who could forget the iconic “Irreemplazable?”), but it’s still a surprise to many. As we put the song on repeat, the memes quickly rolled in. Check out the most hilarious reactions to Beyoncé singing in Spanish below:
