Pamputtae drops ‘Championship’ track in time for World Cup
Dancehall artiste Pamputtae has seized the opportunity to promote one of her newest tracks titled Championship, just in time for the World Cup.
Originally meant to be a motivational song for her supporters, she also saw where it could be an anthem for football fans who are hopeful their team will take home the cup.
"A long time the song out, but it just blends in with the season 'cause a football and World Cup and everybody want their team to be the champion," she told THE STAR.
Though she has given the song new meaning by using it in support of her favourite football team, she wants listeners to pay attention to the words.
"Mi build the track fi tell some people seh, believe inna yuhself and don't give up on life no matter what life throws at you. From yuh believe inna yuhself, you a champion, cause World Cup a guh come and pass," Pamputtae said. A diehard Brazil fan, she is confident that they will win.
"From ever since me likkle a just Brazil me grow fi hear my family dem a talk bout with Pele and dem man deh, so me grow up inna dat. Just like how you grow up inna a community and yuh family dem a Labourite or PNP, so a just so yuh grow up," she said.
"I do believe that Brazil is going to take home the 2022 World Cup title. Them baller fast and strong and ready up and dem supporters dem believe inna dem," she continued. Brazil has won the World Cup five times: 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002.
