XtraTime Web Desk: The theme songs in the FIFA World Cups always play a crucial role in not only setting the mood of the competition but also in popularizing the mega event.

Actor and rapper Will Smith have teamed up with fellow artists Nicky Jam and Era Istrefi for the official Football World Cup song for Russia 2018.

Smith, fellow American singer Jam and Kosovar musician Istrefi have collaborated on the song, titled 'Live It Up'.

The three-man line-up will perform at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow before the final on July 15 and the song, produced by American DJ Diplo, will be officially released on Friday.

Grammy Award-winning actor, songwriter and artist Smith said it had been a privilege to have been involved in the collaboration.

"It's an honour to be asked to perform at the 2018 FIFA World Cup," he said.

"This global event brings people from all over the world together to cheer, laugh and experience magic."

The first official World Cup song - 'World Cup Willie' - was for the 1966 tournament finals in England and was performed by Lonnie Donegan.
