#1. Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) - Shakira (2010)

After it was announced as the official song for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)" by Shakira initially received some negative reactions. The greatest criticism of this catchy number was that the official song for the first World Cup in Africa should ideally have been sung by an African singer. However, once the criticism of Shakira taking the spotlight away from African artists died down, the song became a global hit that transcended the time of the 2010 World Cup. The song has positive lyrics making it a happy and passionate song and the music video is so colorful and vivid that it makes you want to sing along to this tune while doing the "Waka Waka" dance! The video also has historical footage of many of the greats from the past – Ronaldo, Zidane, Messi, Maradona, Pele and Baggio. The song finishes with the words: “We’re all Africa” signifying the world coming together for the World Cup. The music video is still one of the most-watched videos of all time on YouTube. The popularity of this 'most-listened-to' World Cup song ever hints at the massive power of that songs associated with the World Cup has.
