Opening Ceremony Of The 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Pitbull & JLo’s We Are One (Ole Ola) World Cup Song

19 Jun 2014

Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and Claudia Leitte are a terrible trio

It may be the official World Cup anthem this year, but We Are One (Ole Ola), by Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte, has only made it to number 29 in the UK’s official singles chart at the time of going to press, and frankly I’m surprised it got that far. Maybe it’s the clichéd lyrics (“when the going gets tough, the tough get going”), circa Billy Ocean, 1986, or maybe it’s JLo’s digitally pitch-shifted vocals that squeal like helium-fuelled teens, or perhaps it’s just the dated house track itself, but either way it’s awfully amateurish for such a big event. Sorry. There – I said it.
