The 2018 World Cup song has just been released, and it features Latin American pop sensation Nicky Jam, world-famous actor Will Smith and Kosovo-Albanian singer Era Istrefi. The trio is expected to give the track its live debut at the World Cup Final with a performance at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 15.
Produced by Diplo, the sport-related anthem delivers the message that we only have one life so we’d better “Live It Up“.
“It’s an honor to be asked to perform at the 2018 FIFA World Cup” Will Smith said in a statement, “This global event brings people from all over the world to cheer, laugh and experience magic”. The former Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor and rap artist added that “collaborating with Nicky, Era and Diplo on this track represents harmony, eclectic flavors and genres coming together” and that “at the end of the day we just want to see the world dance”.
