World Cup 2018 is knocking at the door and FIFA released the official song on Friday.

Fans all around the world have already synced into the World Cup mode and with just 19 days left for the greatest sporting event to begin, the official song has sent football enthusiasts into a frenzy.

The official song for the 2018 World Cup has been produced by Diplo and conveys the same message as ‘We Are One (Ole Ola)’ performed by Pitbull and Shakira’s ‘Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).

Fans were very excited prior to its release when it was revealed that Hollywood superstar Will Smith would be the main face of the official World Cup 2018 song.

Smith has joined hands with Nicky Jam and Era Istrefi for the song “Live It Up!”.

The trio will also perform the the song live at the World Cup final on July 15 at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

However, there are mixed views about the song. A vast majority have sang praises about the song while others have stated that Shakira’s ‘Waka Waka and Pitbull’s  ‘We Are One (Ole Ola)’ were much better.

[Intro: Era Istrefi]

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

 

[Chorus: Nicky Jam]

One life, live it up, ’cause we got one life

One life, live it up, ’cause we got one life

One life, live it up, ’cause you don’t get it twice

One life, live it up, ’cause you don’t get it twice

 

[Verse 1: Era Istrefi]

Strength your numbers, is a force we can mix

We raise our flags and put our pride on our back

We feelin’ like a champion when we shine our light

We got the power, make condition correct

 

[Chorus: Era Istrefi]

One life, live it up, ’cause you got one life

One-one-one life, live it up, ’cause you got one life

One-one-one life, live it up, ’cause you don’t get it twice

One-one-one life, live it up, ’cause you don’t get it twice

 

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

 

[Vesre 2: Will Smith]

One life, one dream

One moment, one team

One youth, lights high

Thousand road blocks, one shot

One truth, no fears

One flag, oh yeah

We’ve been waiting for this all year

Where y’all at? we’re right here!

 

[Verse 3: Nicky Jam]

Ya empezó la rumba y estamos celebrando

Todo el mundo que me levante la mano

‘Tamos vivos, hay que disfrutarlo

Hoy nadie me detiene porque yo no sé parar, no, no

 

[Chorus: Nicky Jam]

One life, live it up, cause we got one life

One life, live it up, cause we got one life

One life, live it up, cause you don’t get it twice

One life, live it up, cause you don’t get it twice

 

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

 

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

 

[Bridge: Will Smith]

For the love, I’m a rebel I’m coming from

Every nation under the sun

Elevating their favourite song when we hit and run

You own it, you got it

The whole world is watching

So let’s get this pumping

Where y’all at? we’re right here!

 

[Chorus: Nicky Jam & Era Istrefi]

Only one life to live, got so much to give

Fighting for the nation now, that is my gift

Run like a champion and win like a king

That’s my only gold, my everything

Living up now, now

 

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (living up now, now)

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

 

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh (jealousy, ambition)

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh (victories, celebration)

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh (one love, one nation)

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Ay

[Outro: Era Istrefi]

That’s win you reached that goal

That’s win you reached that goal

That’s win you reached that goal

That’s win you reached that goal
