Get Numb to Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez’s World Cup Anthem
"We Are One (Ola Ola)" will be everywhere soon
If you’re planning to watch the World Cup this summer, or any channels that will likely play commercials for the soccer tournament, get ready to hear the following Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez team-up over and over and over. This year’s anthem, “We Are One (Ola Ola),” has all the rah-rah international unity you’d expect for a Cup song, as well as a guest verse by Claudia Leitte, a singer from host country Brazil. The whistle-happy melody and the horn line (which sounds like a Latin ripoff of Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop,” if we’re being honest) also features a lot about waving flags, echoing K’Naan’s “Wavin’ Flag,” which was the 2010 anthem for the South African World Cup. Sigh. Anyway, check it out below and numb yourself to it now.
