A song by both Colombian superstar Shakira and African-based Freshlyground has been selected as the official World Cup Anthem, according to The Associated Press. "Time for Africa" will be released to radio stations globally next week and will be downloadable on April 26. Shakira and Freshlyground will perform the song live at the World Cup kickoff concert in Soweto on June 10, as well as at the tournament's opening ceremony and before the final on July 11.
