The official anthem for this summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia has been released and to our delight, it’s not actually that bad.
The song by pop singer Jason Derulo has a distinct summer vibe and, despite first fears, it’s very easy on the ears.
Derulo has taken the baton from Pitbull and Shakira in collaborating with Coca-Cola for the catchy tune which is officially released on March 16.
The American will perform the song, Colours (we’re not spelling it the American way no matter how many times you ask), at the opening ceremony in Moscow this June.
Official World Cup songs haven’t always been the best, and we’re certainly a fan of the more unofficial ones, including K’Naan’s Wavin’ Flag , which was pipped to the post by Shakira’s Waka Waka for the 2010 World Cup.
England have produced some absolute crackers ahead of international tournaments, with Baddiel and Skinner’s Three Lions on the Shirt still evoking the raw emotion of Euro 96.
Even the unlikeliest collaboration between Dizzee Rascal and James Corden’s Shout was actually half decent…but we won’t mention Ant and Dec’s We’re on the Ball …
