Lebanese songstress Nancy Ajram has announced that she finished recording the theme song for Coca Cola’s World Cup 2014 promotional commercial, al-Bawaba reported this week.

The diva’s 2010 World Cup anthem with Somali-Canadian rapper K’naan, “Wave your Flag,” was well received, becoming a chart topper.

Ajram’s latest album, “Nancy 8,” has topped the iTunes world chart at #1 in France and the U.S. while her latest hit single “Ma Tegy Hena” (Why don’t you come over here) has had more than three million YouTube views, after being uploaded a week ago.

Meanwhile, Colombian pop star Shakira released the official World Cup song for 2014 on last week, four years after super hit “Waka Waka” made huge successes during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The lyrics of the song titled “La La La” were written by Shakira, as a reworked version of the star’s new song “Dare.”

The World Cup is set to take place in Rio de Janeiro towards the end of 2014.

“It’s an upbeat, Brazilian track. The lyrics are personal and I’ve actually recorded a version for the World Cup,” said the 37-year-old singer, reported Britain’s Daily Star.
