K’NAAN – Wavin’ Flag (2010 World Cup)

“Wavin’ Flag” is a song by Somali-Canadian artist K’naan from his album Troubadour. The song was a global hit, reaching the top ten in 19 charts around the world and was chosen as Coca-Cola’s promotional anthem for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, hosted by South Africa. The English version was released as “Wavin’ Flag (Coca Cola Mix)” by K’naan. A version of the song featuring Will. i. Am and David Guetta in Spanish was targeted for international release. Many other bilingual and country-specific versions were released. A remake of the song by an ad hoc supergroup of Canadian artists, credited as Young Artists for Haiti, became a charity single in Canada. The meaning behind the song is the unity of Africa and its love for Soccer.
