Nicki Minaj, Maluma & Myriam Fares Drop World Cup Anthem ‘Tukoh Taka’

Nicki Minaj has teamed up with Maluma and Lebanese singer Myriam Fares for a new 2022 FIFA World Cup anthem “Tukoh Taka.”

“Tukoh Taka” was roduced by Gordo, Play-N-Skillz and Massari. It was released alongside an accompanying music video. The track features English, Spanish and Arabic lyrics.

“I am so happy to be part of this FIFA World Cup anthem! I always dreamt of an opportunity like this,” Maluma said in a statement. “Representing Latin music on this global track alongside amazing artists that sing in English and Arabic, takes our culture to another level.”

Fares added, “‘Tukoh Taka’, the song that I was honored to participate in its composition, arrangement, and choreography, made me more passionate about it, in addition to working alongside two of my favorite international artists, Nicki Minaj and Maluma. I truly wish that ‘Tukoh Taka’ will be transmitting the Eastern culture and Arabian music to the whole world.”

“Yo, mira, mira, mira/Con mi copa amiga /Loca, loca la vida (Sí),” raps Minaj in her verse, making reference to Ricky Martin, who sang the 1998 anthem, “Cup of Life.” “Yo soy muy rica/Pap?l o plástica/Some say ‘football,’ some say ‘soccer’/Likkl? shot go block-a.”

“Tukoh Taka” drops just ahead of the widely-anticipated release of Minaj’s fifth studio album, a follow-up to 2018 LP Queen.

In a recent interview with City GirlsJT for i-D, the superstar rapper said that the album will drop “soon.”

“I’m not gonna say when it’s gonna come out, but the album will be out soon,” she said.
