Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you had to see this one coming.
Between the popularity of her 2010 World Cup anthem, "Waka Waka," her love of the sport and her devotion to footballer Gerard Pique, Shakira was bound to become musically involved in the upcoming tournament in Brazil. Even if FIFA already selected Pitbull for this year’s “official” World Cup song.
Behold: “La La La,” the Colombian singer’s unofficial song for the World Cup.
To come up with this upbeat jam, Shakira re-worked her new song “Dare,” adding in soccer-specific lyrics like, “Hear the whistle, kick the ball.”
Alright, so it’s not particularly clever. But it’s rather catchy, so it’s almost a certainty that we’ll all be sick of it by the end of the World Cup.
