MTV Brazil Slams Jennifer Lopez’ ‘We Are One’ / Praise Shakira’s ‘La la La’

 shakira that grape juice 40 600x901 MTV Brazil Slams Jennifer Lopez We Are One / Praise Shakiras La la La

Shakira may have lost out on the honour of performing the official ‘2014 FIFA World Cup’ single to Jennifer Lopez, but if an article published by ‘MTV Brazil‘ is anything to go by, the ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer is on course to outperform and outshine Lopez’ release with her very own ‘World Cup‘ offering.

Find out why below…


Billboard reports:

The official World Cup song is definitely striking a chord – the wrong one with many in host country Brazil.

Since the recent release of FIFA’s “We Are One (Ole Ola),” hordes of fans in Brazil have been slamming the official 2014 Cup theme. Many expressed their frustration on Twitter under the tag (hash)VoltaWakaWaka – a plea for the return of the widely loved song that Colombian artist Shakira performed for the 2010 tournament in South Africa.

Although Brazilian Claudia Leitte is also featured in the official theme, critics say they don’t understand why Cuban-American rapper Pitbull and Bronx-born Puerto Rican singer Jennifer Lopez were chosen for the song when there are so many other great musicians in the land of Bossa Nova.

They also complain that the song is mostly in English and Spanish, leaving only a few seconds at the end for Leitte to sing in her native Portuguese.

“What I don’t like about the music is that it’s a poor, dull, generic pop theme,” said Gaia Passarelli, a Brazilian music journalist and a former VJ for MTV Brazil. “It’s a shame considering Brazil’s rich musical tradition, which is admired all over the world.”

“In the end, we lost a chance to do something rich, inspiring and cool. I’m feeling `saudades’ for Shakira,” Passarelli said, using a Portuguese word that roughly translates as painful longing.

    Of course the song is generic trash, I mean – Pitbull is on it, what did they expect?
    But Shakira isn’t exactly Brazilian either (and her “La la la” crap sucks too)…

    The best song from the world cup album is “Dar um Jeito”. And isn’t that also the song that was chosen as the official world cup song?

    Shakira’s Waka Waka was also slammed by many people because she was not African, and she did sing in English too. Just stop complaining. Jenny’s part is great!

    I love me some JLO in all her fabulous glory but anyone with half a Brain can see Jenny doesn’t really it the rest of the world outside of the U.S. but to be far most Americans of all races really do not understand other country’s coulters most because there ignorant to anything that’s not them. But after watching Shakira new video I can Truthfully say its Amazing!!!

    LOL This post… Shakira is the reason for JLO’s career decline, besides Karma. JLo took her recycled Selena movee and Mariah’s hip-hop sound, along with some Ashanti background vocals (Ashanti was supposed toopen Mariah on her Charmbrqcelet Tour:Fun Fact), and was the exotic beauty of the USA. However, even Shakira came out with Whenever, Whenever, everything changed. She became the it girl and outsold JLo with a 20:3 album ratio. JLo was forced to become a brand and fall under any mann she could to get attention incluincluding breaking up Marc’s first marriage. (Fun fact as well) During JLo’s 2005 era, she was slayed by all of those who she f***** over and now is a struggle. Hips Don’t Lie became bigger than any single JLo has ever dropped. JLo ‘s Love? Only sold 300k in the USA and 1 million ww, while Shakira’s She Wolf sold 350k and 2+ million worldwide. Shakira >>>>>>>>> JLo. However, NO ONE can mess with either lady in terms of beauty. They are the most beautiful women EVER. No shade.

    Yep! Shakira is a better artist and also more successful. Shakira had the best selling album in 2002 worldwide. The highest position JLo has ever reached worldwide was like #12 with the JLo album I think, I don´t remember if it was in 2001 or 2002.

    Well, to be honest none of these world cup songs have ever been masterpieces. They are for the summer and that´s it. That said, the best one was probably Ricky Martin´s “La copa de la vida” from 1998.

    LMAOOO while Brasil is fighting over 2 overated singers with their GENERIC Materials called the ” 2014 World Cup Anthem”; PEPSI is about to drop KELLY ROWLAND’s new single “The Game” soon and show them how it is properly done with only one high note they could never see IN THEIR LIFE TIME.

    Yup, that’s right. Get ready to be snatched in the upcoming days with the QUEEN KELENDRIA. Yall already know what is coming your way. HINT: some like WHEN LOVE TAKES, COMMANDER, WHAT A FEELING, WORK… Only God knows how great her vocal will sound on some Brasilian folklore…I cant wait to buy it
