FIFA officials confirmed the news...
Billboard reports that FIFA officials confirmed today (June 8) that Jennifer Lopez will not perform the World Cup's official song with Pitbull and Claudia Leitte during the tournament's opening ceremony in Brazil. According to FIFA officials, Lopez cannot perform at the event on Thursday as planned because of unspecified "production issues."
Instead, Pitbull and Leitte will sing the "We Are One" song before Brazil faces Croatia at the Thursday opener in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Some critics believe the song is too generic for the country's Bossa Nova-crazed audiences and that is features foreign musicians singing mostly in English and Spanish. Leitte only sings a few seconds at the end of the song in her native Portuguese.
