Ever since Shakira’s Waka Waka was released as the official anthem of 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, fans have started expecting a song that could make every World Cup a memorable one. Pitbull’s We Are One failed to create the same magic, but it did manage to give the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Russia, as hosts, is leaving no stone unturned to make the 2018 FIFA World Cup a grand success.
To bring up an excellent anthem for what is expected to be a great tournament, Diplo, Will Smith, Nicky Jam, and Era Istrefi has reportedly joined hands to create a masterpiece. Diplo has produced some fantastic music of late, and it won’t be wrong to expect something extraordinary from him for the World Cup.
The song will most expectedly be released on YouTube initially but will most likely be kept unavailable for download. However, the video, along with the MP3 version, will be available for download for fans across the globe within a couple of days. It is advised to use official channels to watch and download World Cup song.
Will Smith took to Instagram to give us all a glimpse of what is to come. As per his post, the song is expected to be released 19 days before the World Cup kicks off, i.e. on Friday, 25th of May. He captioned the post with the chorus of the song, “One life to live, Live it up”.

Artists and Performers
FIFA World Cup anthems have never been a work of just one artist. The creativity of multiple artists blends to bring up the final masterpiece. This time around too, artists of entirely different genres have joined hands to create yet another memorable track. While Diplo has been reported to produce the track, Will Smith is expected to be seen performing on the tune. The French Prince of Bel-Air has been reportedly working for the song alongside Kosovian Singer Era Istrefi and Nicky Jam.
Diplo has risen to stardom with some remarkable mixes. He has wasted no time in becoming one of the bests of Tomorrowland. However, the 2018 FIFA World Cup’s anthem will be by far his most significant challenge as the number of his audience will blow up significantly. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for now and expect the magic of Waka Waka and Wavin’ Flag to be better this time around.
