NEW DELHI, MAY 24 : Pop sensation Shakira has released her 2014 FIFA World Cup anthem `La La La`. The track, which is featured in FIFA`s One Love, One Rhythm: The Official 2014 World Cup Album, also appears in the Colombian pop star`s new record, Shakira.
Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll (born February 2, 1977) is a Colombian singer-songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model. Born and raised in Barranquilla, she began performing in school, demonstrating Latin, Arabic, and rock and roll influences and belly dancing abilities.
Her official song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", became the biggest-selling World Cup song of all time. With over 629 million views, its music video is the eighth most-watched video on YouTube.
The video of `La La La` features the 37-year-old singer dancing in a black skirt and features special appearances from soccer stars Lionel Messi, Cesc Fabregas, Eric Abidal, Neymar, James Rodr?guez, Sergio Aguero, Radamel Falcao as well as her longtime boyfriend, Gerard Pique.
The couple`s 16-month-old son Milan also has a cameo in the video and can be seen kicking a soccer ball. Also featured is Brazilian star Carlinhos Brown, who brings the inimitable style that gives the song that all-important Samba feel.
Shakira teamed up with Activia for the video to support the World Food Programme (WFP) and communicate WFP`s work to tackle hunger.
Shakira said: "With `La La La (Brazil 2014)` we want to make a small contribution so that everybody knows about the outstanding work the World Food Programme is doing to fight hunger."
Miami-based rapper Pitbull debuted the official theme for the World Cup, `We Are One (Ole Ola)`, featuring Jennifer Lopez, in April 2014. PTI
