Singer-superstar Shakira has revealed she has made a special version of her new song Dare for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, The Daily Star reports.

The World Cup version of the song will be called La La La, the British newspaper says.

The official FIFA 2014 World Cup song was announced in January and is called We Are One (Ole Ola) by Pitbull featuring Jennifer Lopez & Claudia Leitte – who is from near Rio de Janeiro.

Although the Daily Star says Shakira’s song is an “official” World Cup song, it is as yet unclear whether her song will run in tandem with the FIFA-announced official Pitbull song, and whether one will be the official song and the other the official “anthem”, as has been the tradition in recent years.

This year’s World Cup is being hosted in Brazil and begins on 12 June in São Paulo.

It is the second time the 37-year-old singer, who is originally from Barranquilla, Colombia, has written a World Cup song, after her hit Waka Waka for the 2010 South Africa edition of the tournament.

“It’s an upbeat, Brazilian track. The lyrics are personal and I’ve actually recorded a version for the World Cup,” she was quoted by The Daily Star as saying.

The news comes just before the singer is set to release a new, self-titled album on 25 March. Its lead single – Can’t Remember to Forget You – was released in January and features Rihanna.

The singer has been in a relationship with Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué since 2010 and has an apartment in Barcelona.
