Brazilians far from impressed with 2014 Fifa World Cup song We Are One

The music video for official 2014 Fifa World Cup song We Are One (Ole Ola) may have scenes of what appear to be Brazilian dancers partying, but real Brazilians are reportedly far from impressed with American rapper Pitbull's track.

We Are One, which features Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte, has a "generic sound", is a "big pile of cliches" and has little of the South American country's rhythms, claim Brazilians who took to social media to express their outrage. The music video has more than 37,000 dislikes on YouTube, albeit with more than 122,000 likes.

Some prefer Shakira's 2010 Fifa World Cup theme, Waka Waka (This Time For Africa). The Colombian singer has released a new song for the official World Cup album One Love, One Rhythm that is proving to be more popular than Pitbull's effort. With more than 40 million YouTube views, La La La (Brazil 2014) has already exceeded We Are One's tally.
