2014 FIFA World Cup Song

So! The World Cup finally kicks off in 22 days, and if you are like me, you’re already warning friends and family that you will be unavailable and disconnected during game hours, or planning get-togethers and BBQs to watch the games. I mean, we wait four long years for this! Since we’re talking World Cup, the new music video for the official song was recently released and it features Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte. Unfortunately, it’s not what I (and perhaps many) was expecting for a Brazilian World Cup. Yes, no other song will be as powerful and iconic as Shakira’s but… Why the would give it to Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez?? The painful lyrics are beyond poor, don’t even rhyme, and feel half-assed. The only good part is when brazilian singer Claudia Leitte steps in and gives the song some much needed brazilian flavor and credibility by dropping 4 lines in portuguese – And some serious legs. With so much Brazilian talent and with such a rich musical history, WHY PITBULL?
