Shakira’s song, “La La La (Brazil 2014),” has been called the unofficial song of the 2014 World Cup. She confirmed the song, featuring Brazilian artist, Carlinhos Brown, will be performed at the World Cup closing ceremony.
This will be Shakira’s third consecutive time singing at the World Cup. “Waka Waka” featuring Freshlyground was the 2010 FIFA World Cup official song and in 2006, she performed “Hips Don’t Lie” in Berlin.

Shakira said in a statement:
I have an intricate relationship with football for obvious reasons, for me the World Cup carries such a tremendous personal connection as well. This will be my third consecutive FIFA World Cup performance, and the 2010 FIFA World Cup changed my life forever — it’s where I began the love story of my life, and now have my son Milan as a result,” added Shakira. “For all of those reasons I just feel so grateful for the opportunity to come back to perform at the Closing Ceremony of this year’s FIFA World Cup in Brazil, it feels right. The fans have shown the most incredible support for this song and I can’t wait to perform it for them.
