Carlos Vives Releases 'La Copa De Todos' Official World Cup Song (VIDEOS)

Posted: Updated:

Nothing unites the globe quite like the FIFA World Cup -- and this year thousands of fans and soccer stars will be dancing to the rhythms of South America.

Singer Carlos Vives has joined forces with Brazilian stars Gaby Amarantos and David Correy to record the official Coca-Cola 2014 Brazil World Cup anthem. The Colombian star posted two versions of the song "La Copa De Todos" ("Our Cup") to YouTube on Monday.

The two versions of the songs are accompanied by a the Brazilian percussionist troupe Monobloco and will be the official Spanish-Portuguese songs for the soda giant, which will be one of the international event's sponsors.

"The objective of the Coca-Cola anthem is to highlight the power the World Cup has to unite people and nations around a sport and happiness, and strive to make the tournament the most inclusive and participatory World Cup in history," reads the description of the videos on Vives' YouTube channel.

Former X-Factor contestant David Correy released Coca-Cola's English-language version in September from the Corcovado Mountain above Rio de Janeiro, according to Billboard. The anthem, titled "The World Is Ours" follows a similar beat as Vives' version, though the Colombian star added his personal touch.

"Soccer is not only felt by those who play it but everyone who through it discovers joy, and that's what soccer is: joy," Vives said in a press conference, according to La Opinión. "This song connects the entire continent with that feeling and I give it a Colombian touch so that our culture will be known with the sound of the accordion."

Check out Carlos Vives' version with Gaby Amarantos above and David Correy's versions of the anthem below.
