The second song taken from the World Cup 2022 soundtrack is called “Tukoh Taka“, the first official anthem of the FIFA Fan Festival in Doha. Interpreters are three iconic voices or those of Nicki Minaj, Maluma And Myriam Fares. The aim of this motif is to celebrate unity, culture and diversity globally as emphasized by music executive Wassim “Sal” Slaiby, founder and CEO of Universal Arabic Music.

Representing Latin music on this global track alongside amazing artists singing in English and Arabic takes our culture to another level.”
In fifth position we find “I’m a mess“, new musical work by Avril Lavigne written with Travis Barker, John Feldmann and Dominic Harrison aka Yungblud. After the experience with the young English singer on the occasion of a charity live, the two find themselves in this motif which speaks of long-distance love so difficult to bear. Archangel dedicated to his brother who died after a car accident the song “JS4E” or “Justin Santos For Ever”.

For those who don’t know him yet, this month we have selected a song by in our playlist Paul London that is to say “She” which is part of the album “Back to the game” and where the producer is Sky Rompiendo or J Balvin’s right arm. A 60s-inspired bikini top and mini skirt dress up Hailee Steinfeld in the video clip of “Coast” which reproduces a typical summer atmosphere where she also appears in the guise of a mermaid. Very sunny, it is appreciated even if we are not in the right season and the mood is also very captivating from the first listening. Great success for the song “Copa Copaof the duo Dafina Zequiri ft. Alban Skenderaj produced by Gesko with a very imaginative video and well cared for in detail. Even the constant rhythm is appreciated together with Skenderaj’s melodic vein.
We stay in the rhythm but we move into the sunny Latin reggaeton for the single “Mar Chiquita” with Ozuna And Pedro Capo but also “Ulala” signed by Mike Towers And Daddy Yankee while for dance music we find the very famous DJ and record producer Tiesto with the dancer and singer McRea in “10:35” where the power of the night is highlighted and when the only thought is to be in company and have fun setting aside everyday fears and insecurities. Unrestrained dance also with Minelli in “Could be something“. Composed with Jordan Shaw and Will Simm has its own video that is inspired by the culture of the 80s. So the artist said about this production: “The song was born in London while I was in a session with two amazing artists: Will Simms and Jordan Shaw. We wanted to create a song that makes people dance from the second they hear it. I want all the people to have the same vibe and enjoy the song as we did during the session.”
Another duo of the month is the one formed by the southern Californian rapper German And Nicki Nicole in “Grillz” while the reinterpretation of the historic piece deserves a special note “Immortality” (1998) by Celine Dion with the extraordinary collaboration of Bee Gees who wrote the song for her. The video clip is the one in the studio while the official one was released on October 25, 2009. The rapper Kendrick Lamar released the single “Rich Spirit” where he moves and dances inside a very well furnished but empty house where he talks on an unplugged telephone and does not fall asleep during the night until suddenly playing despite being unplugged.

King in 1962 and which he chose as the third track in his new cover album entitled “Only the Strong Survive”.
