Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull are getting a jump on the FIFA World Cup, releasing the official single more than two months before Brazil hosts the event.

The song, “We Are One (Ole Ola),” also features Brazilian musician Claudia Leitte. Pitbull released the song on YouTube Monday, with the song teasing the “One Love, One Rhythm: 2014 FIFA World Cup Official Album.”

The album will be released on May 13, with contributions from Shakira, Ricky Martin, Wyclef Jean, The Isley Brothers and Baha Men, among others.

“We Are One” comes in the tradition of past World Cup singles, like Shakira’s “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” for the 2012 Cup in South Africa.

That single, on which she sang with South African band Freshlyground, is one of the top 10 most-viewed videos on YouTube with more than 640 million views.

The FIFA World Cup will begin on June 12 and run through July 13.
