The World Cup is still more than two months away, and now that the official song has been released, get ready to hear it just about everywhere.

Rapper Pitbull, Cláudia Leitte and Jennifer Lopez have teamed up for the official song for the World Cup in Brazil, "We Are One (Ole Ola)," which features passages sung in both English and Spanish.

The chorus of the song says: "Put your flags up in the sky, wave them from side-to-side, show the world where you're from, show the world we are one."

The song will be featured on the "One Love, One Rhythm: The Official 2014 FIFA World Cup Album," which will be released in May 13. Santana, Shakira, Ricky Martin, Wyclef Jean and The Isley Brothers will also have songs on the soundtrack.

Pitbill, Lopez and Brazilian artist Leitte shot a music video for the song in Ft. Lauderdale recently. They will be on hand to perform the song at the FIFA World Cup Opening Ceremony on June 12 at the Arena de Sao Paulo.

Official World Cup songs date back to at least 1962, when "El Rock del Mundial" was performed by The Ramblers.

There is usually one official song for the World Cup, but there are also official anthems, as well as other songs that are associated with the event. For example, in 1998, there were a total of four songs.

At the last World Cup, the official anthem of South Africa was "Sign of a Victory" by R. Kelly and the Soweto Spiritual Singers. The official song was "Waka Waka" by Shakira.
