Internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc has joined forces with US X Factor finalist David Correy on the Coca-Cola soundtrack to the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
‘The World is Ours’ by Aloe Blacc X David Correy – a mash up of a newly written and recorded Aloe Blacc song combined with lyrics and sounds from the original version of ‘The World Is Ours’ by David Correy and Monobloco.
The beat for ‘The World is Ours’ by Aloe Blacc x David Correy captures the spirit and excitement of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ and host country, Brazil, while the lyrics express messages of inclusivity, celebration and happiness as told through the Coca-Cola 2014 FIFA World Cup campaign, The World’s Cup.
The song has been travelling as part of the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola, gathering the vocals of local artists from all around the globe. As the song visited each market, local artists were able to put their own spin on the track, creating duet versions featuring lyrics sung in their native language. With twenty-four local versions, covering over 175 markets, ‘The World is Ours’ is the anthem for the Coca-Cola 2014 FIFA World Cup™ campaign.
‘The World is Ours’ by Aloe Blacc x David Correy is included on “One Love, One Rhythm: The Official 2014 FIFA World Cup Album” to be released by Sony Music Entertainment globally on May 13th. Behind the vocals of Brazilian-American artist David Correy, the song was penned by world-class songwriting/producer team Rock Mafia, co-produced by Brazilian-born, legendary collaborator Mario Caldato Jr. and features the rhythmic samba, baile funk and technobgrega beats of Brazilian percussion band Monobloco. This cultural mix captures the inclusive spirit of The World’s Cup campaign.
