The first Fifa World Cup being held in the Middle East is set to bring together an array of star-studded lineup of football players for a memorable showpiece in Qatar in November. While it promises to be a great spectacle, the stellar cast would be the Arab music legends and icons to provide the soundtrack.
After releasing Hayya Hayya (Better Together), Arhbo and The World is Yours to Take , Light The Sky is the latest to be released as the part of the official soundtrack.
And it is a unique in the sense that Light The Sky is a stunning collaboration of four of the Arab world’s most famous female singers.
“Light The Sky tells us to ‘shout if you’re with me’ and brings to life the spirit of communal celebration of the Fifa World Cup – an energising message as we look forward to a game-changing tournament of firsts,” Fifa Entertainment Executive and song producer RedOne said.
The song’s highly energised music video also pays tribute to the first Middle Eastern World Cup’s ground-breaking choice of female referees.
In Qatar, matches will be overseen by Stéphanie Frappart from France, Salima Mukansanga from Rwanda, and Yoshimi Yamashita from Japan. Neuza Back from Brazil, Karen Daz Medina from Mexico, and Kathryn Nesbitt from the United States will serve as assistant referees.
“This is an inspirational song with its roots firmly in the Middle East. It is also fitting that the first-ever female referees at a Fifa World Cup are part of this release that will connect with football and music lovers of all ages,” the song producer RedOne said.
More releases are expected to in the sunup to the start of the tournament on November 20.
By fusing the universal languages of music and football, the multi-song Official Soundtrack, driven by the Fifa Sound strategy, is uniting musicians, fans, and players to express their passion.
