Looks like the Fresh Prince, Will Smith is recording the official song for the FIFA World Cup which kicks off in Russia in less than a month.
The multiple award winning Actor, Rapper and Singer posted a picture on Instagram of himself with fellow American singer and songwriter Nicky Jam, with the caption: “One Life to Live. Live it Up. #2018FIFAWorldCup“. He also tagged American DJ Diplo and Kosovo singer and songwriter Era Istrefi in the post.
The four are believed to have filmed the video for the World Cup track over the weekend as well. Will Smith and Nicky Jam have been spotted in Colombia and music producer DJ Nelson confirmed to music website Vibe that they would be performing the song for July’s World Cup tournament.
“Nicky Jam and Will Smith are producing the new copa de futbol, they’re doing it together. They’re making this big song and it’s just so crazy.” He said.
Although there are usually multiple songs associated with the FIFA World Cup, the official anthem is usually the most high-profile and is performed at the finale of the World Cup. For example, Shakira’s “Waka Waka” was the official theme song for the 2010 World Cup held in South Africa.
