Diplo & Will Smith join forces for official World Cup anthem
The 2018 FIFA World Cup is just around the corner, and for this tournament, the official anthem will be in the hands of Diplo and Will Smith, along with Nicky Jam and Era Istrefi. It is reported that the track will see the light of day tomorrow, Friday, May 25th, according to Billboard.
Will Smith’s Instagram post hinted that the track could be named “One Life to Live. Live it Up.” but this is still up in the air, with nothing official confirmed. The anthem will be produced by the one and only Diplo, and get ready to hear it on radios all over the world in the months leading up to the World Cup. The final of the World Cup is the most-watched television event on the planet, with an estimated 2 billion viewers, 18 times more than the Super Bowl.
You may remember some of the past anthems, as they quickly became the summer tunes of that year, like Shakira’s “Waka Waka”, Ricky Martin’s “The Cup Of Life” and even Pitbull’s “We Are One (Ole Ola)”. In 2014, even Avicii was part of the official anthem, together with Carlos Santana and Wyclef Jean. Will this year’s artists live up to the expectations and deliver a tune to remember?
