Shakira Releases Brazil 2014 World Cup Song ‘La La La’ As Gibberish Follow-Up To ‘Waka Waka’ (Video)

By Chris Wright


Today, it’s been announced that Shakira, for the second tournament running, is releasing an official song for the upcoming World Cup in Brazil this summer.

Unless Shakira is just releasing this off her own back there must presumably be two official songs being cobbled together for Brazil 2014, as FIFA have already confirmed that Pitbull (feat. Jennifer Lopez) has been tasked with churning out another of his vapid, worthless nonsenses to accompany the tournament.

Gawd knows.

Anyway, following on from the runaway success of Shakira’s Fozzie Bear-inspired 2010 anthem for South Africa, “Waka Waka“, comes “La La La”.¬†Two songs, three consonants, one vowel.

The song is apparently a direct copy+paste job of a song which appears on Mrs Pique’s eponymous new album called “Dare”, but with the lyrics subtly changed to include some astoundingly corny football references.


“Hear the whistle, kick the ball…”?

Giddy Aunt Amelia.

    Can anyone explain to me why she is the go to for shitty football music? why her? i get the complete international recognition, but you’d think after all these years, they’d go to someone else for this worthless crap.

  3. Dale says:

    But you gotta admit she’s easy on the eyes. I’d rather look at her & gibberish than someone like Steve Tyler & gibberish.

  4. Zam says:

    @Hasselhof, probably because of the Pique/Barca connection.

  5. Love Shakira! Love Gerard! Love Football! Hate this song! It’s awful! it really truly is…there is still time i hope she records something else or get someone else to do it all together. It’s just awful musicianship all around…
