The FIFA World Cup is only a few days away and soccer fans aren’t the only ones getting in the spirit.
Ahead of the tournament, Maroon 5 has released a gleeful cover of Bob Marley’s classic Exodus track “Three Little Birds” for Hyundai’s FIFA World Cup ad campaign. Check out the new music video for the song below.
The video sees frontman Adam Levine and company jamming to the track in front of a tropical billboard while dancing CGI figures made up of different elements like leaves, fire, water, and metal groove along with the band to the reggae classic. The clip ends with the group morphing into elements themselves, “becoming one with nature.”
Just a few weeks ago, the FIFA World Cup official theme song, “Live It Up,” was released, following 2014’s “We Are One (Ole Ola)” by Pitbull and the mega popular track “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” by Shakira from the 2010 tournament.
“Live It Up” is a fast paced dance tune led by reggaeton star Nicky Jam and features a rap from Will Smith, along with a melodic verse from Albanian vocalist Era Istrefi. The Diplo-produced track has an uplifting chorus and a blasting tempo that encourages people to get hyped, making it the perfect high-stakes sports anthem.
The FIFA World Cup is the biggest single-event sporting competition in the world. For the past three years, senior men’s national soccer teams have battled it out in the qualification phase to earn a coveted spot in the tournament. This year, 32 teams from across the world will meet in Russia, where only one team will leave as the 2018 FIFA World Cup champions.
