Music Guide to the 2014 FIFA World Cup


The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicked off to a great start, literally!

From the looks of the Opening Ceremony on Thursday igniting a performance by Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, and Brazilian songstress Claudia Leitte at Itaquerao Stadium, we can tell São Paolo is ready to party for the duration of the World Cup. After all, it only comes around every four years.

And to celebrate, we’ve noticed a lot of musicians, such as Shakira5 Seconds of Summer, MAGIC!, and Aloe Blacc have released celebratory Latin-infused music to honor the major fútbol-filled event.

We’ve made a playlist of videos linked below to ensure that you know all of this year’s World Cup hits:

“Dar um Jeito (We Will Find a Way)” may come to us from Santana, but be sure to listen for Swedish DJ Avicii, who is featured on the track with Alexandre Pires!

Even Baha Men, best known for their 2000 hit, “Who Let the Dogs Out” got in on the World Cup festivities!
