Colombian pop star Shakira released the official World Cup song for 2014 on Monday, four years after super hit “Waka Waka” made huge successes during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Shakira, who made the world dance to the tunes of her song “Waka waka” during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, has recorded a new number for the official World Cup to be held in Brazil this time.
Lyrics of the song titled “La La La” were written by Shakira, as a reworked version of the star’s new song “Dare.”
The World Cup is set to take place in Rio de Janeiro in the summer.
“It’s an upbeat, Brazilian track. The lyrics are personal and I’ve actually recorded a version for the World Cup,” said the 37-year-old singer, reported Britain’s Daily Star.
Shakira’s son, Milan Pique Mebarak, is also featured on the track. She had him one year ago with partner Gerard Pique, a Spanish professional footballer currently playing a center-back for FC Barcelona.
“I was in the studio and Milan came in to hang out in the afternoon. I had him on my lap and he was listening and then when it came to the end of the song, he just went ‘myah’,” she added.
