World Cup 2010, South Africa: Shakira – Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)

Colombian pop star Shakira has had her music intertwined with the last three World Cups, but perhaps the most memorable is ‘Waka Waka’, which came out for the 2010 World Cup. The video for the song featured a number of famous footballers and it was through it that she met her future beau Gerard Pique.

World Cup 2006, Germany: Il Divo (ft. Toni Braxton) – The Time of our Lives

The official music for the 2006 World Cup in Germany is perhaps not as memorable as others, but the song ‘The Time of Our Lives’ by Il Divo, featuring Toni Braxton is a dramatic crossover of the classical style and pop music. It’s probably not to everyone’s tastes, but clearly someone at FIFA enjoyed it!

World Cup 2002, Japan & Korea: Anastacia – Boom

American singer Anastacia burst onto the pop music scene in the early 2000s and her rising profile may have had something to do with the fact that she was sought for an official World Cup song in 2002. The song ‘Boom’ was heard a lot during the tournament in Japan and Korea, along with Vangelis’ ‘Anthem’.

World Cup 1998, France: Ricky Martin – La Copa de la Vida (The Cup of Life)
