After Despacito ruling the party floor for months, Spanish song Mi Gente by Colombian singer J Balvin and French singer-producer Willy William is topping the playlist.
t2 did a #throwback and asked the party peeps to pick their all-time fave foreign language tracks! Here’s what they said...

Mi Gente 2.0: A new version of the song released in September 28 has Beyonce lending her voice for a cause. The video is a montage that features footballer Ronaldo and his son to Neymar Jr, to DJs Tiesto, Martin Garrix and David Guetta. But Queen Bey herself is missing!
