Brazil is hosting the World Cup this year. But many Brazilians aren’t happy about the official song that they will be hearing endlessly.

The song is called We Are One (Ole Ola). It features performances from Cuban-American rapper Pitbull, and New York-born Jennifer Lopez.

It’s sung in English and Spanish. But people in Brazil speak Portuguese. There is a Brazlian singer on the recording. And Claudia Leitte gets to sing in Portuguese. But only for a few seconds right at the end of the song.

Music critics say the official World Cup song rarely reflects the culture of the host country.
