Perhaps it’s a little early to get hyped up about this summer’s FIFA World Cup in South Africa, but rest assured WAPS will only be covering the music side of things.
First up with a World Cup 2010 song is Shakira, who will also perform at the opening ceremony on June 10th alongside Black Eyed Peas and Alicia Keys.
After closing the 2006 World Cup with a performance of ‘Hips Don’t Lie’, Shakira is back in the football fold with the Spanish-language ‘Saminamina‘. The track’s African influences can be heard through the sample of ‘Zangalewa‘, a Camaroonian song from the 80s. Check it out above.
