It was this week reported by U.S media outlets that the popular actor and singer Nicky Jam will record the official song of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Every FIFA World Cup features an official anthem that is performed at official ceremonies of the tournament. Past anthems include Shakira’s “Waka Waka” for the world cup in South Africa, Il Divo’s “The Time of Our Lives,” and Pitbull’s “We Are One (Ole Ola).”
Reggaeton producer DJ Nelson told the Vibe entertainment news outlet that the duo are recording the big song, and it is set to be awesome. He said;
“Nicky Jam and Will Smith are producing the new copa de football, they’re doing it together.”
“They’re making this big song and it’s just so crazy.”
The official song for the 2018 FIFA world cup is expected to be unveiled this Friday, barely three weeks before the start of the tournament, and is also expected to feature Albanian singer Era Istrefi.
Earlier this week, Will Smith posted a photo on his Instagram account with himself and Nicky Jam holding the official World Cup 2018 ball. The sign under read
“Nicky Jam – Diplo – Estrefie – Will Smith. One life to live. Live it up.”
