Nicki Minaj, Maluma and Myriam Fares have come together to release a special song in honor of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
On Friday, November 18, FIFA released the music video for "Tukoh Taka" featuring multi-platinum rapper Nicki Minaj, international sensation Maluma and singer-actress Myriam Fares. The song, which is the official fan anthem for the FIFA World Cup, is the first-ever trilingual track inspired by the international soccer tournament with lyrics in English, Spanish and Arabic. In the visuals, all three artists hit the deserts in Qatar to perform the song. In addition to all the electric dance routines, there are also scenes from various soccer matches included in between their verses.
"Tukoh Taka" is the latest song to be released as a part of the World Cup's inaugural soundtrack. Instead of just one official song like they've done in the past, multiple songs featuring artists from around the world have been released like "Hayya Hayya (Better Together)" with Trinidad Cardona, Davido, and Aisha plus "Arhbo" with Ozuna featuring GIMS. Lil Baby also teamed up with Tears for Fears for the Budweiser anthem "The World Is Yours To Take" that's featured on the soundtrack.
