*Alicia Keys and Jay-Z have no intention of writing an anthem for the World Cup Kick-off Concert in June despite public requests.
“If we did a record about soccer it would be obvious we didn’t know much more about the sport than who David Beckham is,” the Sun newspaper reports her saying.
Keys, who will be performing at the event, was asked about penning an anthem with the rapper especially for the occasion on June 10. Their previous hit, “Empire State of Mind,” became an unofficial anthem for the New York Yankees during their successful World Series run.
The World Cup Kick-off concert will also have performances from Black Eyed Peas and Shakira.
