Global superstars Becky G and Burna Boy have joined forces on their latest track “Rotate” which is out now via Kemosabe/RCA Records. Listen HERE. Becky G says, “Rotate” to me is a celebration. I think it’s evident that futbol holds a special place in my heart and having Burna Boy join me on this made sense because ultimately I wanted to embody the perfect pre-game song that gets the blood flowing, makes you want to dance and enjoy the sport.”
Burna Boy says, “This is a song that inspires you to aspire and I’m truly honored to be a part of the champions league journey. Writing it came from a place of positivity. The belief that no matter who or where you are, whatever your background or your origins are, there is no limit to what you can achieve when you put your mind to it! I believe we are ALL champions!”
“Rotate,” which was co-written by both artists along with SoFLY, Nius, DiGenius, Elena Rose, Nate Campany and Jin Jin and produced by SoFLY, Nius and DiGenius, is currently featured in the 2021 Pepsi global football campaign “Music Keeps Us Fizzing’ which launched earlier this week. The lyrics and beat of the track, ‘Rotate’, are inspired by this year’s roster of Pepsi football talent and are a tribute to the beautiful game.
