Mr. Worldwide is now Mr. World Cup.
Getting in on the whistle-hook form favored by his spiritual brother Flo Rida, Pitbull implores his international audience to “put your flags up in the sky.” Jennifer Lopez continues the odd, sweet friendship she and Pitbull share with a Beyoncé-style hip-hop verse, while Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte provides a vocal climax, as well as some local pride.
“We Are One” is the official song of the 2014 World Cup, not to be confused with the official anthem of the 2014 World Cup, "Dar um Jeito (We Will Find a Way)," by Carlos Santana, Wyclef Jean and Avicii. Both songs will appear on the official soundtrack album of the 2014 World Cup, which also features appearances by Ricky Martin, Shakira and the Baha Men.
The actual soccer games start June 12.
Listen to “We Are One” above. Dalé!
