FIFA announced the news on Thursday, while Pitbull hinted at the collaboration via Twitter a day earlier, tweeting, "One song brings the world together #WeAreOne @JLo @ClaudiaLeitte @FIFAcom #WorldCup Obrigado."
Written and produced by Pitbull, the track will debut ahead of the World Cup and will be featured on the "Official 2014 FIFA World Cup Album." A video is also in the works.
Pibull and Jennifer Lopez have collaborated on three previous tracks: "On the Floor," "Dance Again," and most recently "Live It Up" from JLo's next album. Claudia Leitte is a popular singer in Brazil and a coach for TV singing competition "The Voice Brasil."
The song follows Shakira's "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)," recorded with Freshlyground, which provided the soundtrack for the 2010 event hosted by South Africa.
