Bilingual singer-songwriter Becky G teamed up with Burna Boy and Pepsi to bring to life ‘Rotate’. The powerful track appears in Pepsi’s “Fizz to Life” commercial which features some of the world’s most popular soccer stars.
Becky G & Burna Boy in ‘Rotate’
“‘Rotate’ to me is a celebration,” Becky G said in a statement. “I think it’s evident that fútbol holds a special place in my heart. Having Burna Boy join me on this made sense because ultimately I wanted to embody the perfect pre-game song that gets the blood flowing, makes you want to dance and enjoy the sport”. ‘Rotate’ marks Becky G’s first release in four months since ‘No Drama,’ featuring Ozuna.
Burna Boy commented, “This is a song that inspires you to aspire and I’m truly honored to be a part of the champions league journey. Writing it came from a place of positivity. The belief that no matter who or where you are, whatever your background or your origins are. There is no limit to what you can achieve when you put your mind to it! I believe we are ALL champions!”
A Pepsi Commercial Full of Soccer Stars
‘Rotate’ was co-written by both artists along with SoFLY, Nius, DiGenius, Elena Rose, Nate Campany, and Jin Jin and produced by SoFLY, Nius, and DiGenius. It is currently featured in the 2021 Pepsi global football campaign “Music Keeps Us Fizzing,” which launched earlier this week. The lyrics and beat of the track are inspired by this year’s roster of Pepsi football talent and are a tribute to the beautiful game.
Pepsi’s “Fiz to Life” commercial features soccer stars Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba, Jadon Sancho, and Shanice van de Sanden. In the commercial, they appear as posters on the walls of a girl listening to ‘Rotate’ with her headphones on, while she opens up a can of Pepsi soda. The chase for the fizzing can of Pepsi is on as the players show off their fast-paced football skills. They shuffle and dribble while leaping in and out of posters and magazines around the room. Ultimately, Messi grabs the girl’s Pepsi and drinks it while back inside the poster.
