Pitbull, J. Lo & Claudia Leitte Ring in the World Cup with, ‘We Are One (Ole Ola)’

May 24, 2014


Alright, Alright, so you guys are already well aware of my undying love for Mrs. Z (Beyoncé), meaning that you know one of two things about me. What you didn’t know is, I’m still not quite sure who I’d rather be stranded on an island with, if given the choice between the beautiful Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé. What you have to understand here is, Jennifer Lopez is a grown WOMAN; 44 years young, and can still move like Jenny from the block…I’ve done it again people…Okay, back to the topic, Pitbull’s new World Cup anthem, “We Are One (Ole Ola),” featuring Jennifer Lopez and Brazilian pop star, Claudia Leitte. Phew.

I have to begin by giving credit where credit’s due, as Pitbull has been making us dance since he was merely a young pup, releasing club bangers like, “Culo,” “Shake,” and the infectious, “I Know You Want Me”. While incomparable to Shakira’s massive worldwide hit, “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa),” from 2010’s World Cup (now surpassing 663 MILLION views on YouTube), “We Are One (Ole Ola)” definitely has the potential to fuel another amazing World Cup, taking place this year in Brazil. With the Brazilian national team as the early favorites to win the World Cup in their home country, it was only fitting that Pitbull also feature Brazil’s own, Claudia Leitte.

The three artists opened the 2014 Billboard Music Awards with a bang, each entering from a separate stage, much to the audience’s surprise. Visually, their performance was amazing, and set an awesome vibe for the show to come. Pitbull manages to keep all-white suits in style, while J. Lo could wear a trash bag and still cover magazines (there I go again…). In addition to their performance, they also released an official music video for this year’s World Cup anthem, which highlights the beauty of Brazil and it’s extremely rich history embedded in the heart of fútbol. This is not to say that the video doesn’t also find Pitbull once again, rocking his patented white suit. The video also highlights video clips compiled from past World Cup matches of other teams also competing in this year’s tournament, yet the REAL highlight is of course, the lovely Ms. Lopez, accompanied by the beautiful Ms. Claudia Leitte.

Be sure to check out the official video below, and tweet us @weknowthedj and let us know if the video for “We Are One (Ole Ola)” got you as excited for the World Cup as we are. As always, have a great weekend, summer is in sight!
