Pitbull releases 2014 World Cup’s official song “We Are One (Ole Ola)”

Pitbull JLo World Cup

By FRANCO PANIZO

The official 2014 World Cup song is here.

Pop stars Pitbull and JLo and Brazilian musical artist Claudia Leitte released their collaborative track for this summer’s tournament on Tuesday, and it is titled¬†”We Are One (Ole Ola).” Pitbull can be heard through the majority of the tune, but JLo and Leitte do have verses of their own.

In addition, FIFA revealed the official World Cup album tracklist on Tuesday. It features songs from Shakira, Ricky Martin, Avicii and more.

The video for the official World Cup track has not yet been released, but is expected to drop shortly. It was filmed in South Florida earlier this year.

“We Are One (Ole Ola)” comes out just a couple weeks after Shakira dropped her World Cup-inspired “La La La” track.

Give “We Are One (Ole Ola)” a listen and let us know what you think in the comments section below:

What do you think of the song? Is it getting you pumped up for the World Cup in Brazil or are you a bit disappointed? Like Shakira’s track better?

    Good lord. I thought the internet sent Pitbull to Alaska, I wish he had stayed.

  2. TheFrenchOne says:

    my ears are bleeding … it burns!!

  3. Chris says:

    So, it pretty much it sounds like every other crappy Pitbull song…

    Way to go FIFA, seriously, was there no Brasilian music act that better represented this Brasilian WC?

  4. BFT says:

    Sh*te.

  5. Ian says:

    Not even going to listen. Instead, I’m youtubing K’Naan’s Wavin’ Flag. May it reign as the World Cup anthem in perpetuity.

  6. William the Terror says:

    On the bad side, I listened for 21 seconds, which were wasted. On the plus side, I’m no longer constipated.

  7. blokhin says:

    ugh… Pitbull is reason enough to leave soccer behind after 30 years of fandom

  8. Dc says:

    Crrrrrrrrrrrrap

  9. argh says:

    when I get older….

    a waving flag…

    CLASSIC. why can’t we keep it

  10. Cabrito says:

    Every day there seems to be a new reason not to watch the World Cup.

  11. Josh D says:

    That was absolutely awful. At least Shakira’s South Africa song from four years ago got you excited. This is equivalent to elevator music.

  12. Landon Klinsmann says:

    I am praying for a redo on this selection. I will use the same prayer that I have been using for Qatar and Russian WCups to go to England and USA. I doubt they will work, and when they don’t it will only reinforce my concern that a benevolent God does not exist.

  13. Bean says:

    W.T.F.

  14. MLS_Soccer_Talker says:

    Pitbull is not my cup of tea. But lets face it a lot ppl like him. Hes got intl appeal so I see why he would be selected to do this. This song is OK. There have been better WC songs IMO.

    The whistling at the end reminds of Diplos Peter Bhjorn & John remix.

  15. MMV says:

    When I read “Pitbull” I thought damn Edgar Davids dabbles in music?? Curious, I took a listen. Holy s*** I swear the Davids could make better music than this crap.

  16. JayAre says:

    Bring back K’naan and R.kelly from 2010. This guys a joke

  17. NASL to El Paso tx says:

    MLS needs their own theme song besides playing the FIFA song when the players come out. That would help the league grow even more, imagine espn or fs1 playing MLS song when they show MLS highlights.
    Another thing that I don’t hate or love, is playing the US national anthem,when MLS is full of different nationalities. MLS needs to change that ASAP, it’s not college or high school sports, it’s the worlds sport, futbol, football, soccer.
    Get it straight MLS, let’s not Americanize everything like if it’s the 1900s.
    Get a MLS theme song and stop playing the US national anthem please, save it for MLS cup. Oh and get a new MLS logo :)

    • DWE4 says:

      What???? This post + Pitbull = my head imploding and gravity collapsing upon itself.

    • JayAre says:

      +1 on the new logo, We should bite off the Scottish Premierships logo

    • RBNY says:

      MLS already has its own theme music. They don’t play the FIFA music unless its a friendly, CL, or USOC. Google MLS theme music and you’ll recognize it.

    • Jacknut says:

      You broke our sarcasm detectors

    • MLS_Soccer_Talker says:

      Riduculous. Always.

    • Ian says:

      I actually agree with El Paso for once. Call me unpatriotic, but why DO we play the National Anthem before every sporting event? Are league sports inherently patriotic? Are they any less meaningful without the Anthem sung? It strikes me as akin to religious devotion; mindless adherence to a creed. I’m sure I’ll be blasted for this.

      • Ali Dia says:

        I’m fine with this. In the interest of further improving the standard of play, I think we should just shamelessly start playing the UEFA Champions League anthem instead. Which is also weird, come to think of it.

    • Chris says:

      Dumb post in every thread quota reached. My god.

  18. dan says:

    this is HORRIBLE, wtf!

    Bring back Ricky Martin or Shakira, they were both fantastic songs. Pitbull is trash

  19. Reboot says:

    If I recall the UEFA Euro Championship 2012 song was pretty good.

    No one likes Pitbull. He is like the Latino Nickelback

    • TheRyan says:

      “Latino Nickelback” FTW!

    • Ali Dia says:

      Home run.

    • Freddy Adu says:

      I’m quitting the Internet now that I’ve read this post! “Latino Nickelback” is literally perfection.

      And by the way, if you read that and thought “hey, what’s wrong with Nickelback?” then look in the mirror cause you’re part of the problem, not the solution

  20. AcidBurn says:

    So let me guess:

    “Unh!”
    “Dale!”
    Mumble four spanish words
    List 4 cities

    Right?

  21. Nick says:

    Guys, let’s give Pitbull some credit here.. it’s hard when you are Cuban-American and don’t have money like Seacrest

    • Giant Midget says:

      I know he is Cuban American, but those friggin glasses really do make him look bizarrely similar to an elderly Jewish man. Which is a decent look, in my book.

      • Chupacabra says:

        The polyester suits with slacks pulled up to the tits really complete the Uncle Sheldon from Boca effect.

  22. kevin says:

    Gross… Can see Ives liking this though <_< #raggetonero4life

  23. Raymon says:

    I feel violated. I need a lawyer.

  24. MLS_Soccer_Talker says:

    Who here remembers 98′ WC song By Chumbawumba( something like that)??!?! “DANNNYYYYY BOOOOOY” hahaha

  25. Chris says:

    Does anyone really care about the World Cup song?

  26. Natchez says:

    The last good World Cup song was Ricky Martin’s “Copa de la Vida.” Screw all this namby-pamby, feel-good unity crap. Give me drums, horns, and lyrics about how we’re the best and we’re here to crush some other person/nation’s dreams for bragging rights and a very ugly trophy.

  27. Daniel in Chapel Hill says:

    This rap is Deuce quality.

  28. Adam M. says:

    The should have just repurposed Skank’s “Futebol” song, seeing as how it is, you know, a popular upbeat song about soccer by a popular upbeat Brasilian band that was in a prior version of the FIFA video game. I’m not sure what the Pitbull thing was supposed to be. If you want to mix up Brasilian music with something else for some reason, go buy the Black Eyed Peas/Sergio Mendes album. Or better yet, Sinatra and Jobim.

    • chuck says:

      Yeah the Futebol song is good but the band’s name is… let’s say, not quite marketable.

  29. Dan says:

    Oh good, I was worried that the WC song would be done by someone who has a smidgen of talent. Pitbull is abysmal.

  30. GOYA-GOYA says:

    I couldn’t even finish listening to this HORRIBLE song, and I don’t mind Pitbull. This is a terrible song, and FIFA should be ashamed to associate with it.

  31. Aquaman says:

    Wait, the World Cup cd has a Baha Men song on it? I can’t accept this because I never did find out who let the dogs out

  32. subkie says:

    PITTBUL is damn good..
