The thrill of the FIFA World Cup is unmatched by many other sporting events. The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) approved the official soundtracks, often known as anthems, before the major quadrennial tournament, which heightened the anticipation. Since FIFA adopted official World Cup soundtracks in 1990, each of these anthems has left a lasting impression on us supporters.

The Colombian superstar’s full list of appearances at the FIFA event, along with the songs she sang during each one, is as follows:

Wyclef Jean performed in Germany in 2006 with Hips Don’t Lie.

A South African Waka Waka song Brazilian 2010

La La La from 2014 with Carlinhos Brown

In 2006, Shakira made her World Cup debut by singing “Hips Don’t Lie” with Wyclef Jean at the World Cup’s closing ceremony in Germany.

Shakira’s “Waka Waka” served as the official anthem for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which was held in South Africa and is still regarded as one of the best FIFA songs. Waka Waka, which combines pop song components with South African folk music and Shakira’s contagious energy, is one of the most well-known FIFA anthems and has come to be associated with the game. It has more than 1.8 billion YouTube views for a reason.

We still can’t get the song out of our heads after 12 years, so it still has a banger quality.

For all eternity, people will associate this song with the World Cup.

The fact that this song is the most energizing in the entire wonderful history of World Cup songs is only fitting. No other song gets you fired up like this one.

Love football or not, when the 2014 Globe Cup begins on June 12 in Brazil, the entire world will be talking about it.

Shakira released the World Cup version of La La La just before invasion day. Football legends like Lionel Messi, Gerard Piqué, and Cesc Fabregas make cameo appearances in it.

When it was revealed that Qatar would be the host nation for the 2022 World Cup, there were innumerable examples of news reports and remarks from celebrities criticizing FIFA’s decision and accusing the group of placing human rights second to their own financial interests. Numerous football players, including Christian Eriksen of Denmark and Bruno Fernandes of Portugal, have voiced their opposition to the Arab nation hosting the World Cup. Dua Lipa just joined the list of musicians who have declined to play at the World Cup. The guest musician, Shakira, has chosen to decline the invitation and prioritize human rights compliance.
