A track by Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez has been named by Fifa as the official anthem for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The song, ‘We Are One (Ole Ola)’, also features Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte. It will be performed at the opening ceremony of the football tournament at the Arena de Sao Paulo on 12 June, 2014.
The track will be released later this year in the lead up to the World Cup. It will also be included on the upcoming official 2014 Fifa World Cup album.
“I’m honored to join Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte at the FIFA World Cup to bring the world together,” Pitbull said in a statement. “I truly believe that this great game and the power of music will help unify us, because we are best when we are one.”
“I grew up in a house that loved futbol, so I am thrilled to be performing at the World Cup Opening Ceremonies with Pitbull and Claudia Leitte,” says Jennifer Lopez. “This is an amazing celebration of global unity, competition and the sport.”
The 2010 Fifa World Cup song for the tournament in South Africa was ‘Waka Waka’ by Shakira.
