Fifa has named a track by Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez as the official anthem for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. We Are One (Ole Ola), which also features Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte, will be performed at the opening ceremony at the Arena de Sao Paulo on 12 June.
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. Pitbull said: “I truly believe that this great game and the power of music will help unify us, because we are best when we are one.”
The 33-year-old singer, also known as Mr Worldwide, has had 11 top 10 tracks in the Official Singles Chart to date. His most recent single, Timber which features Kesha, was the first number one of 2014.
“I grew up in a house that loved football, so I am thrilled to be performing at the World Cup Opening Ceremonies with Pitbull and Claudia Leitte,” said Jennifer Lopez. “This is an amazing celebration of global unity, competition and the sport.”
