Fans are waiting with bated breath to hear Lil Baby’s voice in the anthem of this year’s World Cup. They just can’t wait to see what he has planned for his performance in Qatar.
“The World Is Yours To Take” will be featured on the Official FIFA World Cup soundtrack and will be used in campaign content from Budweiser, the Official Beer of the FIFA World Cup, who Lil Baby is partnering with for the release. The track is one of only eight singles on the soundtrack, and Lil Baby will celebrate it with a live performance at the Budweiser Hotel during the tournament in Qatar on his 28th birthday (December 3).
The star and beer maker will also team up with a host of other artists around the world to release new versions of the song and will shoot the music video at the FIFA World Cup.
The 22nd edition of the FIFA World Cup will begin on 20th November to 18th December 2022. France is the defending champions of the coveted trophy after they clinched the title in 2018 after defeating Croatia in the final. This will be the first World Cup ever to be held in the Arab world, and the second World Cup held entirely in Asia after the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan. In addition, the tournament will be the last to involve 32 teams, with an increase to 48 teams scheduled for the 2026 tournament in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
