Everything, everything gonna work out
Every tomorrow, no matter what goes down

Gonna be, gonna be sticking around
Every tomorrow, no matter what goes down

Life can be up and down but what can you do, eh?
We navigate through all the rough and the smooth, yeah
We got that rock ‘n’ roll, that rhythm and blues, yeah, yeah
I’m never blue if I am rockin’ with you

I promise, I promise, I promise you now
Everything, everything gonna work out
Every tomorrow, no matter what goes down
I promise, I promise, I promise you now
Gonna be, gonna be sticking around
Every tomorrow, no matter what goes down

Commentary

The 2022 FIFA theme song, Hayya Hayya is an impressive song that translates the world’s situation. Coming after Covid, a time when the world was brought to its knees, and also, coming at a time when nations of the world are rising against one another, there is a need for us to come together as one.

Football has over time proven not to be just a game played or enjoyed for pleasure but also a bridge builder that travels inter-continentally to unite people of different races and backgrounds.

Hayya Hayya does not only signify the identification of talents spread across borders but also points out to the endless possibility that lies in togetherness.

As the song translates the moment, the time is now or never to come together as humans under the heavens.

Specifically, the coming together of America’s Cardona, Africa’s Davido and the Middle East’s Aisha is very significant to the theme of the 2022 world cup song–“We are better together”.

FIFA 2022 Song: What the World is Saying About “Hayya Hayya”

  • @ZhanghaLI recounts the epic songs that featured Nigeria’s foremost artiste, Davido and concludes that OBO has immortalised himself.

Misko Ball, a Youtuber says: “I loved it, the song was very good, the truth is that it represents all the effort and sacrifice that qualifying for a World Cup means, since it is not easy at all and achieving it is a great honour.”

Nevertheless, some football lovers, have submitted contrary views as regards the theme song for FIFA 2022. For them, the new world cup song isn’t a smash hit unlike 2010’s “Waka Waka”

According to a Youtube user, Tanvir Editz, out of all the official songs, 2010’s is the best. He, however, noted that if he should keep a memory of any official or unofficial world cup songs, waving of flags remains the best for him.

Another person says that though she liked “Better Together”, it’s not a big hit like “Waka Waka”, but it screams the culture the world deserves to see.

In the final analysis, after weighing the Like/Dislike arguments, we can conclude that Hayya Hayya isn’t a bad song.
