NEW YORK, NEW YORK - Arash Labaf, 41, a multi-platinum-selling Iranian-Swedish singer/songwriter, is collaborating with Pitbull, Russian super-star Nyusha and rising American star Blanco for the new football anthem "Goalie Goalie." The quartet will be premiered at the Opening Event of the World Cup, June 14th in Russia. Nyusha is one of the most successful artists in the Russia and is also an Official Ambassador for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™.
"My biggest passions in life are football and music. I believed that if music didn't work out, I could succeed in football. The FIFA World Cup is the biggest event in the World, uniting people from all continents. This year's tournament in Russia will be an incredible experience! I would like to spread more positive energy so I recorded the song "Goalie Goalie". I am extremely humbled and excited to be there in person to perform and support the games," said Arash.
"Music should unite us, no matter what our creed or skin color. Our collaboration (with Pitbull, Arash and Blanco) is an anthem to connect different cultures and people. Also, it's important for me to let all foreign guests know that Russian people are very welcoming and genial," said Nyusha.
