Wyclef Jean And Carlos Santana Reunite For 2014 FIFA World Cup Anthem
Wyclef Jean has once again linked up with rock guitar icon Carlos Santana for another collaboration. The two musicians have teamed up for “Dar Um Jeito” (“We Will Find A Way”), the official 2014 FIFA World Anthem. They are joined by EDM mainstay Avicii and Brazilian singer Alexandre Pire for the track that features thunderous drums married with blistering guitars.
The single is available on for sale on Itunes and other digital music. It will also be included on the 2014 FIFA World Cup album, that features Ricky Martin and Shakira, Sergio Mendes, The Isley Brothers and Bebel Gilberto. The project called One Love One Rhythm drops on May 12.
Carlos Santana gave his thoughts on the song.
“It is an honor to take part in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and have “Dar um Jeito (We Will Find A Way”) selected as the Anthem," Santana said via a statement "Along with my brothers, Wyclef, Avicii and Alexandre Pires, we look forward to performing the song in Rio de Janeiro in July and sharing this message of light and hope on the FIFA World Cup stage.”
This song is just the latest in Wyclef and Carlos Santana's working relationship. They have teamed up in the past when Wyclef produced "Maria Maria" featuring The Product G&B for Santana's Grammy winning album Supernatural. Clef expressed his excitement for the song as well.
"Despite the fact that I was born in a place where darkness at times steals the sunshine, where rain often turns to floods and children often cannot be found, I have always found a way to sing with joy…." Wyclef said “Dar um Jeito” is dedicated to all those searching for the light….knowing that they too, shall soon find a way.”
The foursome are currently scheduled to perform together at the July 13 World Cup closing match in Rio de Janeiro.
