Last month, Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte dropped their official song for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, “We Are One”. Before the song had been released, it was confirmed that the official anthem, not to be confused with the song, would be titled “Dar Um Jeito” (“We Will Find A Way”) performed by Carlos Santana, Wyclef, Avicii and Brazilian singer Alexandre Pire.
The song is now available through digital media outlets and Vevo and will be featured on the 2014 FIFA World Cup Soundtrack which will be released on May 12 through RCA Records in the United States. The soundtrack will not only feature both the Pitbull track and the anthem, it will also feature 12 tracks by various familiar World Cup artists including Ricky Martin and Shakira, Sergio Mendes, The Isley Brothers and Bebel Gilberto.
For now check out the new song which will be performed live during the closing ceremony of the soccer (or futbol) tournament on July 13 in Rio de Janiero.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup is set to kick off in Brazil later this year and now, after months of waiting the theme song for the tournament has been released. The song, “We Are One (Ole Ola),” is collaboration between Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and The Voice Brasil coach/Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte.
In January, FIFA and Sony Music first announced “We Are One” which was written and co-produced by Pitbull, would be the theme song though no one had heard the song nor knew just what it would sound like. Now we have gotten the full song which will be performed live during the soccer tournament’s opening ceremony on June 12 in Sao Paulo.
Paying homage to the trio’s backgrounds, the song is multilingual featuring verses in Portuguese by Leitte.
Pitbull took to Twitter to announced the track’s release as well as to link fans of the song to the FIFA World Cup album it will be featured on, One Love, One Rhythm. We can also now anticipate that the music video for the song will be released any day now considering that the music video was being shot in Ft. Lauderdale in February.
While “We Are One” is the official song for the games, Santana and Wyclef Jean’s soon-to-be-revealed “Dar um Jeito (We Will Find a Way) will be the official anthem.
