Will Smith and singer Nicky Jam will record the official song of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Every World Cup features an official anthem that is performed at official ceremonies of the tournament. Past anthems include Shakira’s “Waka Waka”, Il Divo’s “The Time of Our Lives,” and Pitbull’s “We Are One (Ole Ola).”
“Nicky Jam and Will Smith are producing the new copa de football, they’re doing it together,” reggaeton producer DJ Nelson told the Vibe entertainment news outlet. “They’re making this big song and it’s just so crazy.”
The official song is expected to be unveiled this Friday, three weeks before the start of the tournament, and is also expected to feature Albanian singer Era Istrefi.
