We are only a few months away from this summer’s biggest sporting event: the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Being held in the host country of Russia, die-hard fans from all over the world will be glued to their TV sets as they vie for their country to take home the biggest award in the Beautiful Game.
To celebrate the acclaimed tournament, FIFA has just released its Coca-Cola-sponsored anthem sung by U.S. pop star Jason Derulo. Titled “Colors,” the track — which was also written by Derulo — emphasizes the excitement that greets the arrival of the World Cup. “Through my years of travel, I’ve been able to see the beauty in our cultural differences and I wrote ‘Colors’ to celebrate that diversity and be a part of the amazing energy that sports fans around the world give to their teams,” Jason Derulo says in a press statement.
Take a listen to the 2018 FIFA World Cup anthem above, and tune in to the tournament which runs from June 14 to July 15 in Russia. In case you’ve missed it, this 100-day countdown video celebrates FIFA’s most memorable World Cup moments.
