Nicky Jam’s “Live It Up” is the official song for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. Produced by Diplo, the track features guest verses from Will Smith and Albanian vocalist Era Istrefi and was announced earlier this month. The reggaeton track gets a true international treatment with rapping from Smith and a lush, melodic verse from Istrefi. Diplo also recently released a new song with Mark Ronson as part of their Silk City duo.
Ahead of the final on 15 July, the music stars will warm up the 80,000 spectators at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium and around one billion people watching on TV just a few minutes before the two finalists come out on to the pitch.
