The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off today. To celebrate the worldwide soccer event, Pepsi releases a thrilling video for the song ‘The Game’ featuring the voice of Kelly Rowland. The track is featured on Pepsi’s ‘Beats of the Beautiful Game’ album.
Shot by Spike Lee, the visual showcases a young boy showcasing his love for soccer, as he journeys to the World Cup.
“I was immediately attracted to ‘The Game’ because I can identify with its theme of overcoming challenges and finding your voice,” said Rowland. “It’s a very important message and I’m honored to partner with Pepsi on a project that brings the worlds of music, sports, and film together. As an artist– and a huge film and sports fan — it’s been an incredible experience.”
“Use your voice, use it and use it good / I had a dream, I have a dream / Do you have a dream,” she sings over the drum-heavy beat. “Don’t give it up, together we can, look at the past, let’s make a plan.”
The songstress, who is apparently pregnant and expecting a child (she revealed an Instagram photo of a pair of baby sneakers this week), is not the only artist celebrating the World Cup. Janelle Monae’s ‘Heroes’ and Rita Ora’s ‘I Will Never Let You Down (Switch Remix)’ also appears on the Pepsi LP. In addition, Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez released the official song for the World Cup, ‘We Are One (Ole Ola).’
