Emilio Estefan has released a star-studded tribute to the Hispanic community called "We're All Mexican."

Estefan told Billboard Magazine, the song was not directly a jab at Donald Trump, but rather a response to the anti-Mexican sentiment he had witnessed in the media. Entertainment Weekly cites, "response to anti-Mexican rhetoric being stirred up this summer, which eventually led to a hate crime against a Hispanic man in Boston last month."

"There's a message being sent out to the world where people are giving opinions that are plain wrong," the 19 Grammy award-winning producer said. "We need to lift up our pride and show the world what we're doing."

GOP front-runner Donald Trump comes to mind after he was quite vocal about his thoughts on the Mexican community saying, "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems [to] us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

The producer told the music magazine he has known Trump for "many, many years" and with this song he wanted "to send a message that represents unity."

"Trump doesn't represent anything to me," Estefan tells Billboard. "Everyone has their opinion, and he can have whatever opinion he wants, as long as he doesn't humiliate my people."

The Cuban-American artist's song is a track he says is in response to the anti-Mexican sentiment he has seen portrayed in the media.

"We're all Mexican" is an uptempo track with blaring trumpets, screeching electric guitars, and bright synths amidst chanting of "We're all Mexcian" and lines that translate to ""Latins, united, opening paths, let no one stop us." Wyclef Jean and Wisin also rap on the track.

The video is collage of various people of Hispanic origin saying "We are all Mexican" and showing their support for the Hispanic community including cameos from notable celebrities and personalities like, Pitbull, Thalia, Wyclef, Carlos Santana, Rita Moreno, Luis Coronel, Carlos Vives, Banda El Recodo, as well as Kathy Griffin, Whoopi Goldberg, Eva Longoria, Perez Hilton and chef Jose Andres.

The song is not available for commercial purposes, however the video can be watched on YouTube.
