Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez' World Cup Theme Drawing Criticism From Brazil
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.25.2014

Every four years the FIFA World Cup comes around, and with it comes a new theme song. This year the event is being hosted by Brazil, who appear to be none too happy with Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez's official song for the tournament. Billboard reports that fams in the South American country are criticizing the duo's "We Are One (Ole Ola)," arguing that it doesn't make sense for the Cuban-American rapper and Bronx-born Puerto Rican singer to perform the song when there are so many great singers in Brazil to choose from. Brazilian Claudia Leitte does perform in the song, but only in a featured role.

The Brazilian fans also dislike the fact that the song is mostly in English and Spanish and that Leitte only gets a few seconds at the end to sing in Portugese. The hashtag #VoltaWakaWaka has been trending on Twitter, which is a call for Shakira's 2010 World Cup theme song "Waka Waka (This Time For Africa" to return.

Brazilian music journalist said, Gaia Passarelli"What I don't like about the music is that it's a poor, dull, generic pop theme. It's a shame considering Brazil's rich musical tradition, which is admired all over the world...In the end, we lost a chance to do something rich, inspiring and cool. I'm feeling saudades [a painful longing] for Shakira."

While Shakira has a song on the official 2014 World Cup album titled "Dare (La La La)," it is not the designated official song for the event. The music video for it on YouTube (which you can see below, along with Pitbull & Lopez' number) has 27.7 million viewers as of this writing. Pitbull and Lopez' song has 33.3 million views.
