Nicki Minaj, Maluma & Myriam Link For World Cup Anthem
Nicki Minaj has no time for any 2022 World Cup controversies … the Barbz rapper has been enlisted for “Tukoh Taka” the official FIFA Fan Festival anthem!!!
The song is a collaboration between Nicki, Colombian singer Maluma and lebanese singer Myriam Fares and delivers lyrics in 3 different languages – English, Spanish and Arabic to cater to the global soccer audience.
“Tukoh Taka” translates to “click clack” in Yankee talk and the 3 megastars all display their presence in the video.
Edgar Esteves and Juan Felipe Zuleta direct the high-octane visual … which splice between cut scenes of fútbol highlights, Nicki gyrating on a school bus and Maluma and Myriam Fares performing in a green-screened desert.
World Cup action kicks off starting Sunday from Qatar … but this year’s event has many pundits raising eyebrows as festivities are underway.
Unlike Nicki, artists such as Dua Lipa and Shakira have refused to participate in Cup performances … citing various alleged human rights infractions in the country.
FIFA also announced it’s banning all alcohol sales in World Cup stadiums ahead of the opening games … leaving many fans pissed.
Nicki’s not on the World Cup artist island alone, however … Sean-Paul, J BalvinBlack Eyed Peas and more will also be performing throughout the competition.
