Akon to produce 2010 FIFA World Cup anthem
To all the soccer fans out there.
R&B singer and Lady GaGa’s producer Akon confirmed his involvement in 2010 FIFA World Cup soundtrack project.
I’ve been hired as musical director for the World Cup,” Akon said. “I’m the official music co-ordinator. It means I’ll produce the official World Cup song and I’ll oversee all the official music.”
Little is yet revealed about the soundtrack itself. We don’t know if Akon only produces or also sings on the anthem. The list of musicians involved in the project is also kept under wraps.
What I can tell you for sure is that you won’t hear any football players sing for the World Cup tournament.
If David Beckham said he wanted to contribute musically, I’d advise him not to. He’d definitely be better off playing. It doesn’t work when athletes try to become musicians,” Akon told the media.
As to me, I’d better see Cristiano Ronaldo play than sing, really.
2010 FIFA World Cup is scheduled to take place between June 11 and July 11, 2010 in South Africa.
