Pitbull, Jennifer López and Brazilian artist Claudia Leitte are teaming up to record the official song of the upcoming World Cup 2014 soccer championship in Brazil.  

Pitbull and Leitte joined World Cup officials from FIFA and Sony Music for the announcement Thursday at the Maracanã soccer stadium in Rio de Janeiro.  

The FIFA webpage reports that the official song entitled "We Are One (Olé Olá)" is being written and co-produced by Pitbull.  FIFA and Sony Music look forward to the song becoming as popular as Shakira's "Waka Waka," which was the official song for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. 

The three performers will sing "We Are One (Olé Olá)" at the opening ceremony on June 12th in São Paulo before the first game between Brazil and Croatia.
