Written and co-produced by Pitbull, the song "is set to bring the passion of Brazil to the world" and "ignite the excitement felt by football fans" for the tournament kicking off in June.

Leitte said she is looking forward to "dancing samba with Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez in Brazil".

Lopez was not in Rio for the announcement.
