Pitbull premiered on his official YouTube channel the official song of the World Cup in Brazil, “We Are One (Ole Ola),” which he sings together with Jennifer Lopez and Brazil’s Claudia Leitte.
The music video shows the artists singing and dancing amid a boisterous Carnival atmosphere packed with those famous Brazilian girls and colors of the flags of all nations competing in the tourney, to be contested from June 12 to July 13.
Also seen in the video, which lasts slightly more than four minutes, are historic sequences from previous World Cups and some of soccer’s all-time stars like Lionel Messi from Argentina, the Brazilian Neymar, Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, England’s Wayne Rooney, the Spaniard Andres Iniesta and more.
The video was shot in February on the beach at Fort Lauderdale, 40 kilometers (25 miles) north of Miami.
Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Leitte will vocalize the lyrics at the opening World Cup match between Brazil and Croatia at the Arena Corinthians stadium in Sao Paulo.
“We Are One (Ole Ola)” has verses in Spanish, English and Portuguese that will be sung by the New York songstress of Puerto Rican origin, the American rapper of Cuban descent and the Brazilian Claudia Leitte.
The song is part of the official World Cup album “One Love: One Rhythm,” which the FIFA and record label Sony Music released on May 8.
