"Mi Gente" added on Beyoncé to their remix.

She even sings some lyrics in Spanish.

- I know. I can appreciate.

I appreciate when an artist can be appreciative

of other art.

- What it does for us here in the States is it introduces you

to a whole new genre of music you might not be listening to.

- That's great.

I mean, it has a nice crossover appeal,

you know, get it to different markets.

The Latin tempo and the whole dance aspect of it

is something I really like.

Unfortunately, I don't speak Spanish, so I didn't know what the heck

they were saying, but that was really cool,

that they brought the other artists in like that.
