Will Smith and Nicky Jam, together with Kosovo singer Era Istrefi, will perform the official 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia song. The track is being produced by Diplo.
Although there are multiple songs associated with the World Cup, the official anthem is usually the most high-profile and is performed at the finale of the World Cup, which will be watched by an estimated 2 billion people. Past anthems include Shakira’s “Waka Waka” and Ricky Martin’s “The Cup of Life.”
According to an interview with Nicky Jam’s manager Juan Diego Medina, Nicky Jam and Smith were in Budapest adding final touches to the song, which is slated to be released on Friday.
