The official anthem of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, the song is performed by Pitbull with Jennifer Lopez as well as Brazilian pop star Claudia Leitte, who is a coach on The Voice Brasil. Pitbull, who co-wrote and produced the tune said: "I'm honored to join Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte at the FIFA World Cup to bring the world together. I truly believe that this great game and the power of music will help unify us, because we are best when we are one."
The song and its accompanying video was criticized in Brazil. "You know that idea of an American that thinks the capital of Brazil is Argentina? That's what this is," former MTV Brazil program director Leka Peres tweeted. "They grab two 'Latinos' from the world of global pop to make a song that has nothing to do with Brazil."
Pitbull, Lopez and Leitte performed the song at the World Cup opening ceremony on June 12 2014, in Arena Corinthians, São Paulo, prior to the Brazil vs. Croatia match.
