Who better to bring countries together than Mr. Worldwide? Omnipresent rapper Pitbull premiered his theme song for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil today (January 31) and it delivers exactly what you would expect from the soundtrack to a sporting event — uplifting lyrics and stirring beats with a slight world music twist.
“It’s only right that we do something for the world cup,” begins Pit humbly before sing-talking his way through generic but well-intended lyrics like “even though we may look different, we’re really all the same” and rapping about flags. Of course, he throws in a bit of Spanish and says “ole” a lot. It’s no “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)” but with enough beer and soccer, this will do the trick. Listen to the song after the jump.
