Released in May 2014, One Love, One Rhythm: The 2014 FIFA World Cup Official Album is a 14-song collection of songs written or selected for the Brazilian-hosted World Cup soccer tournament. With an emphasis on Latin-oriented music, the album is led by the official theme song of the tournament, "We Are One (Ole Ola)," which is a collaboration between Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, and Brazilian axé singer Claudia Leitte. Another single, "Dar um Jeito" (We Will Find a Way) by Santana and Wyclef Jean (with Avicii and Brazilian singer Alexandre Pires), serves as the tournament's official anthem. Among the other commissioned songs are an official mascot song by Arlindo Cruz and an official Coca-Cola campaign song sung by Aloe Blacc and David Correy. Music by Ricky Martin, Shakira, Sergio Mendes, and many others round out the collection.
