The 2018 World Cup official song has been announced and it will be sung by Jason Derulo. He has officially unveiled his song “Colours” and it has since been released ahead of the tournament getting underway on June 14th.

The competition is set to be watched by millions of sports fans across the globe and the song will be heard on a regular basis throughout the event. According to the online betting odds from 888Sports and Sports Interaction, Germany, Brazil, France, Spain and Argentina are all likely to dominate the tournament.

FIFA and its partners have been working on the official tournament soundtrack and they decided that Jason Derulo’s song was the most appropriate choice to represent the competition in Russia due its upbeat feel and nod towards multi-culturalism. They are hoping that people will immediately associate the World Cup official song with the tournament, whenever they hear it. It conveys a hopeful and positive message about the future and promotes unity.

Upon releasing the song, Derulo took to social media and wrote “Represent your country – represent your flag. Be proud of where you’re from and who you are”.

Previous World Cup official songs include Pitbull’s “We are One” which was chosen for the 2014 tournament in Brazil, Shakira’s “Waka Waka” which was released ahead of South Africa 2010 and Ricky Martin’s “La Copa de la Vida”, which was chosen by FIFA ahead of the 1998 World Cup.
