The two international hitmakers have teamed up to release the official 2014 FIFA World Cup Song, “We Are One (Olé Ola).” The anthem, which also features Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte, was released online on Monday night, a little more than two months ahead of the soccer tournament getting under way.
This isn’t the first time that Pit and J. Lo have joined forces for an upbeat release. In fact, this is the fourth year in a row that they’ve collaborated, with “On the Floor,” “Dance Again” and “Live It Up” serving as predecessors to their latest. If that track record is any indication — those three records have sales in the multi-millions combined — “We Are One” is sure to be a hit too.
Back in February, the trio shot an official music video for the song in Florida. They’re also reportedly scheduled to perform it at the World Cup’s Opening Ceremony, which goes down June 12 in Brazil.
The song will be featured on the upcoming One Love, One Rhythm: The Official 2014 FIFA World Cup Album. The project is also set to feature Shakira, Santana, Wyclef Jean, Ricky Martin, the Isley Brothers and others, and will be released on May 13.
