shakira world cup 600x455 Report: Shakira To Perform At World Cup Closing Ceremony

For many, Shakira‘s ‘La La (Brazil 2014)’ has become “the” definitive song for the World Cup.

Indeed, despite Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, and Claudia Leitte‘s ‘We Are One’ being handed that honor in an official capacity, the lukewarm reaction to the track locally and globally has seen many embrace Shaki’s effort more.

As such, the masses will likely be elated to learn that the hip-swivelling singer has been tapped to perform the track at the World Cup Closing Ceremony.

Details below…

Confirmation comes courtesy of Billboard, who keenly spotlight the difference in popularity between both songs.

No stranger to serving up the heat for the soccer extravaganza, Shakira provided the official theme for the 2010 competition – the gargantuan smash ‘Waka Waka’. A point which perhaps confirms why she should have been selected again this year from the onset.

Haven’t heard ‘La La’ yet? Check out the video below…

        Brazil has not been playing well for years. They don´t deserve to win. Plus as audience they are not behaving too well to other teams. It´s being a bit of a mess the whole thing.

    She is trying so hard to have another ‘Waka Waka’, get over it, both songs are horrible, but if the FIFA choose ‘We Are One’ she must respect that, there are rumours that her camp started the whole controversy, it must be true, only Shakira fans comment on every youtube video about the song saying they want ‘La la la’ as the official world cup song, at least Pitbull’s song have a Brazilian singer in it, ever since she moved to Spain she has become in a different person, her music is terrible now and she seems full of herself.

        Agreed. Elvis STOLE from all of those black artists just to become what he was/is and no one can deny that. It’s a fact that those artists stole the originality of Black Iconic Artists and they still to date haven’t received the credit they deserve.

        He didn’t stole anything, he even gave a name to the music that blacks were playing, without Elvis, Rock N’ Roll wouldn’t even have a name, he earned his acclaim, voice, good with instruments, beauty, charisma, do you tell me that fan girls and the public would have been crazy about flamboyant Little Richard and Chuck Berry, don’t fool yourselves, learn about the truth story of Elvis, black people hate so much this man, do you homework folks, don’t be ignortants.

        @Suicide Yes they would because they don’t know any better. It is the same explanation for why little girls go crazy over Juston Beiber and etc. Plus, I didn’t even mention Chuck Barry and etc., and you did because you already knew who he got a few moves from. FYI, I’m not even black hun, but carry on honey byn. :)

        Well, if are white, you must know that he wasn’t inspired by Chuck or Little Richard, he took inspiration from normal people who singed popular songs in the south, both black and white people, who shared poverty in common, that is influence, it’s not something you stole. Another thing, what about talent, Elvis was more talented than every black artist at the time, pressed over this man since 1956.

    Why are they bringing Shakira back? Her 2014 World Cup song isn’t that great, I guess this time around they couldn’t find a legendary local song to steal on …

    They should have went for Ahmed Chawki’s “Time of our lives”. His song is 1000x better than all those big budget flops:
