The song, written and produced by Pitbull, captures the festive, global nature of the once-in-a-lifetime soccer event celebrating 100 years of the Copa America tournament. “Superstar” is the official song of this historic event taking place from June 3-26 in 10 cities across the United States.
Pitbull is no stranger to the world’s biggest sporting events, having performed alongside Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leite at the FIFA World Cup in 2014. And Pitbull will perform, “Superstar” alongside Becky G live for the first time on Sunday, June 26 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ prior to the tournament’s final match in New York City. The pre-game concert is included in the game ticket.
“Music is universal and soccer is the world’s sport,” says Pitbull, “it’s an honor to be a part of Copa America Centenario and collaborate with Becky G on, ‘Superstars’”.
“I’m so blessed to be collaborating with my longtime friend and supporter Pitbull on ‘Superstar’. I grew up watching the Copa America with my Grandfather, so to say I’m excited to perform at this world-class soccer event, in my home country, is an understatement!” said Becky G.
Copa America, which includes half of the world’s Top 10 nations per the May FIFA Rankings, will open on Friday, June 3. The inaugural match will kick off at 9:30 p.m. ET, live on FS1, Univision, UniMas and Univision Deportes Network.
