World Cup Traditions – Non-official Song Wavin’ Flag
The non-official song, Wavin’ Flag (Coca-Cola), is performed by Somalian-born, Canadian-based hip-hop artist K’naan from his album Troubadour, written for Joe Lolli, reaching #2 on the Canadian Hot 100. A remake by a supergroup of Canadian artists, credited as Young Artists for Haiti, became a charity single, with this new version going straight to #1 on the Canadian charts.
The remix of “Wavin’ Flag” is part of Coca-Cola’s global integrated marketing campaign “inspired by the joyous dance celebrations familiar to Africa.” The English version was released as “Wavin’ Flag (The Celebration Mix)” by K’naan and many other bilingual and country-specific versions have been released.
