Pepsi’s football inspired album is out now!

Football, Pepsi Max, and a bunch of musical superstars

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, never did we expect a combination of the like, but it’s finally here, Pepsi’s Beats of the Beautiful Game, an album featuring a ton of musical acts from across the world.

Contributors to the album include Rita Ora, Janelle Monae and Destiny’s Child’s self-proclaimed ‘second lead vocalist’, Kelly Rowland. Alongside each of the 11 songs will be a short film, or ‘filmtrack’ as they’re being called, which will celebrate the sounds and spirit of football.

The occasion? Apparently there’s some kind of “World Cup” coming up, it’s the first we’ve heard of it. Of course, we’re being sarcastic, we can’t wait to feast our eyes on the many fit footie players over the coming month.

Amongst the tracks on the album is Heroes by Janelle Monáe, an inspiring, anti-bullying track with its accompanying video; you should go check it out.

Beats of the Beautiful Game is available on iTunes now.
