Pitbull has teamed up with Jennifer Lopez for "We Are One (Ole Ola)", which will be the theme song of his year's FIFA World Cup Brazil. For the project, Mr. Worldwide will also be working with Brazilian singer and the coach of "The Voice Brasil" Claudia Leitte.

The news was announced on Thursday, January 23 at the Maracana football stadium. FIFA General Secretary Jerome Valcke also talked about Leitte's participation, saying, "In my many visits to this country, I've heard a lot about the great Brazilian music tradition and it gives me great pleasure to see a Brazilian artist at the heart of this song. I'm sure, like me, millions of football and music fans all over the world will be eagerly awaiting the song's release."

"I am very happy and thrilled to represent my country at the FIFA World Cup alongside these two amazing artists who I admire and respect. I love sharing my culture and country to people through music!" said Leitte. "The FIFA World Cup is one of the biggest events on the planet, and I look forward to dancing samba with Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez in Brazil - we are one!"

"I'm honored to join Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte at the FIFA World Cup to bring the world together," Pitbull added. "I truly believe that this great game and the power of music will help unify us, because we are best when we are one."

The new single, written and produced by Pitbull, will be debuted later this year ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. It will also be featured in "Official 2014 FIFA World Cup Album" which will arrive via Sony Music Entertainment. A music video for the song is currently in the works.

"We Are One" would be another World Cup song by Latin stars following Shakira, who was behind the theme for the 2010 South Africa Cup "Waka Waka", and Ricky Martin, who released "The Cup of Life" for the 1998 tournament in France.
