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

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.

Shakira’s son, Milan Pique Mebarak, is also featured at the end of the song. She had him one year ago with partner Gerard Pique, a Spanish professional footballer currently playing a center-back for FC Barcelona.

“I was in the studio and Milan came in to hang out in the afternoon. I had him on my lap and he was listening and then when it came to the end of the song, he just went ‘myah’,” she added.

Shakira recently released a new album titled “Shakira”, after a five-year break, the Daily Mail reported.
