Listen Up! The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup Album


Official World Cup anthems are one of the most viable commodities around sporting events, and Listen Up! The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup Album, joins the ranks with a parade of multinational pop stars indulging in epic collaborations: think R. Kelly backed by a Soweto choir (which honors the World Cup host South Africa) or the songwriter Angélique Kidjo from Benin appearing with American R&B star John Legend. (Many African music fans cried foul over Colombian star Shakira's song "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)" being named the Official World Cup Song, although she collaborated with the South African group Freshlyground.) One of the highlights is "Ke Nako," written by teacher and songwriter J Pre, and delivered by a group including Wyclef Jean and Jazmine Sullivan.
