As has been tradition for many years now, a select number of songs soundtrack the global soccer event, except this time, Arab music legends will provide the soundtrack. Therefore, everyone is intrigued to discover the picks for this year’s World Cup song.

So far, FIFA has released a number of songs titled to be this year’s World Cup song. Some of them are a part of the official FIFA World Cup soundtrack, and the ones that are not are still worthy of a mention.

Fifa released the first song from the official soundtrack in April, titled “Hayya Hayya (Better Together),” featuring Trinidad Cardona, Davido and Aisha. Four months later, the football federation released the second song from the soundtrack titled “Arhbo,” with Latin star Ozuna and French Congolese rapper Gims. They released the third track on 23 September “The World is Yours To Take,” by Lil Baby, who has teamed up with beer company Budweiser.

The most recent song FIFA has released as part of the official soundtrack is “Light The Sky,” which is a breathtaking collaboration amongst four of the most well-known female vocalists in the Arab world.

Emirati singer-songwriter Balqees, award-winning Moroccan singer-songwriter Manal, Moroccan-Canadian sensation Nora Fatehi and Iraqi diva Rahma Riad, all contribute their mesmerising voices to the captivating tune.

The highly energized music video of the all-female World Cup song pays tribute to the first Middle Eastern World Cup’s ground-breaking choice of female referees.

Fifa Entertainment Executive and song producer RedOne said: 

Light The Sky invites us to “shout if you’re with me” and brings to life the spirit of collective celebration of the Fifa World Cup — an energising message as we look forward to a game-changing tournament of firsts. This is an inspirational song with its roots firmly in the Middle East. It is also fitting that the first-ever female referees at a Fifa World Cup are part of this release that will connect with football and music lovers of all ages.”
