Because there’s no “musician” I despise more on God’s green earth than Pitbull, I haven’t paid much attention to his World Cup anthem alongside Jennifer Lopez. All I really know is that the song has sort of flopped, which is great news and hopefully opens the door for Lily Allen’s “Bass Like Home” to become the tournament’s new theme. Still not entirely sure what the thumping electro-pop has to do with (non-American) football, but Allen has labeled the song her “unofficial World Cup song”, so I’m just gonna take her word for it. Listen below.
“Bass Like Home” follows last month’s release of Sheezus, Allen’s first new album in five years.
