Report: Shakira To Perform At World Cup Closing Ceremony

Published: Saturday 28th Jun 2014 by Sam

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…

      • Suicide Blonde June 28, 2014

        Brazil is not weak, they’re just not playing the way they used to.

      • JOHNVIDAL (Supernatural) June 29, 2014

        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.

  5. Proud-Arianator June 28, 2014

  10. Molly June 28, 2014

    People are actually here for goat vocals? omg.

    • Mark111 June 28, 2014

      Well, it’s slightly better than those out of breath whispers Ciara does.

      • IStanForYourFav June 28, 2014

        Ciara doesn’t whisper Mark… 😉

      • Molly June 28, 2014

        Why are you so bothered mark?

      • CherylSoldier June 29, 2014

        But what was special about Aaliyah’s vocals in miss you? It’s literally the most boring song ever. The self drag

  11. Molly June 28, 2014

    Omg @INeedACareer is so embarrassing.

  12. Suicide Blonde June 28, 2014

    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.

    • Career Ender June 28, 2014

      just saw yo comment bout Bob Marley on some post
      just want you to know Bob Marley > Elvis Presley

      • IStanForYourFav June 28, 2014

        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.

      • Suicide Blonde June 28, 2014

        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.

      • IStanForYourFav June 28, 2014

        @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. 🙂

      • Suicide Blonde June 28, 2014

        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.

  13. Career Ender June 28, 2014

    still rihicon looks like a starving bottom who escaped some Dependant Cheap H*** organisation from the slums of Atlanta

  14. Career Ender June 28, 2014

    oh I was wondering why the steets of TGJ has been full of faeces lately

    the notorious licker wasn’t around
    welcome back and I hope you will scoop more than 100kg today

  15. IStanForYourFav June 28, 2014

    OMG, Shakira, JLO, Nicole S., & Kelly have to be the most stunningly beautiful women in the world. Just so beautiful, that’s it not even fair to others.

    • Career Ender June 28, 2014

      sgame bestowed upon thee for putting flopzinger wings amongst those beautiful women

      • IStanForYourFav June 28, 2014

        So bc you’re a flop, you’re not beautiful????

        Shakira has sold 60 million & JLO has sold 80 million. That’s not too shabby.

    • Overdose June 28, 2014

      Kelly? Lol
      Anyway sit with this ignorant comment. You havne met half the women in the world to know.

      • IStanForYourFav June 28, 2014

        Why are you downgrading Kelly’s beauty? Plus, everyone knows when I mention the most beautiful woman, I mean in the Hollywood world. Why are you so bitter?

      • Overdose June 28, 2014

        No not everyone knows that. They’re not psychic. No ones bitter just stop making stupid shallow comments.

      • Overdose June 28, 2014

        And im not downgrading Kellys beauty. You’re reaching.

      • IStanForYourFav June 28, 2014

        So telling another woman that’s she is beautiful is reaching? You are bitter sweetheart. It’s not that serious. Ciara is cute too.

      • Overdose June 28, 2014

        No bish theres a difference. Saying that she’s the most beautiful woman in the world, and that’s unfair to others is REACHING. I can name about 20 female celebs who are all better looking Kelly. And yes I know Ciara is cute, you don’t need to tell me.

      • IStanForYourFav June 28, 2014

        I said she along with the others I listed are the most beautiful women. We all are entitled to our opinion. Once again why are you bitter? If you don’t think Kelly is pretty then ok. Go on with your life. IDK why my opinion has you so pressed.

  27. Hermaprodite ciara June 28, 2014


  28. The Queen Of R&B June 28, 2014

    The only reason she got the spot is because Kelly Rowland didn’t take it , Kelly was going to perform her Hit song The Game

    • Mimi Carey June 28, 2014

      lol b**** please.

      • The Queen Of R&B June 28, 2014

        B**** please last time I check your Fav couldn’t even sing live , and she can’t even book something like that because once again she can’t sing live, and ain’t nobody checking for her

      • Rosie June 28, 2014

        Has “Me. I am Mooriah…” sold 200K worldwide yet?

      • IStanForYourFav June 28, 2014

        LMAO you all are dragging Mariah when that is the same troll that has been on here for the last two weeks.

  29. Rosie June 28, 2014

    LOL at the same Gravatarless trolls running in here calling her a flop when Waka Waka outsold some of your fave’s discography worldwide.

    • CherylSoldier June 29, 2014

      It has outdone Lana’s.

      • Rosie June 29, 2014

        It also outdid Cheryl’s with ease. I don’t understand what you’re trying to accomplish with this weak drag but attempt¿

      • CherylSoldier June 29, 2014

        Cheryl actually did her total uk sales first week. Nice try.

  30. BeyHive June 28, 2014

    Kelly Rowland was going to be the one to perform but she turn it down , I’m thinking it’s because she’s about to have her baby , I would want to see Kelly Rowland perform live before Shakira ain’t nobody checking for her she’s needs to sit down somewhere

    • Timago June 30, 2014


      Hahaha!!! What a JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. IStanForYourFav June 28, 2014

    Where are these trolls doing here? Why has this site been filled them as of lately

  32. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez June 28, 2014

    Ugh, could the hive control that @CareerEnder thing? If you’re going to have a pet then learn how to f****** tame it!

  33. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez June 28, 2014

    Sam, you need to make a post about Lorde speaking so highly of Rihanna. Instead of this garbage!!! I like Shakira but her music isn’t good like 2006

  34. MISHKA June 29, 2014

    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:
