Nicki Minaj, Colombian singer-songwriter Maluma and Lebanese artist Mariam Fares have released new songs just in time for the World Cup.
The trilingual song titled “Tukoh Taka” has lyrics in English, Spanish and Arabic which will be held in Qatar.

The Music video on FIFA YouTube channel It has garnered 3.7 million views since being uploaded yesterday afternoon.
The World Cup anthem follows in the footsteps of other successful football anthems.

The United States open their run on Monday with Wales’ match against England at 2pm and Iran in other Group B matches at 8am.
