BTS Jungkook’s highly anticipated track ‘Dreamers’ for the Qatar FIFA World Cup 2022 has finally dropped, and we are all in love with it. The release of traditional World Cup songs has always escalated the hype of the tournament. Jungkook is set to become the first Korean act to perform at a World Cup in history later today and the only Asian act to have their own solo song for the same. The song has swayed BTS fans, called ‘ARMYs,’ worldwide and brought all the football fans on their feet with its groovy music.
The song is already a hit among the general public of Qatar, with them posting several TikTok videos using the sound. The song has multiple edits going viral on social media platforms as we speak, owing to the catchy beats and heart-warming vocals sung by Jeon Jungkook.
“Look who we are, we are the dreamers, We’ll make it happen ’cause we believe it, Look who we are, we are the dreamers, We’ll make it happen ’cause we can see it,” sings the lyrics.
‘Dreamers’ has already become the fastest FIFA World Cup song in history to reach #1 on US iTunes, doing so in 2 hours & 11 minutes. Additionally, it has the #1 spot in 60+ countries and counting on iTunes within 24 hours of its release. It is also challenging to be the highest charting World Cup song on Billboard Hot100, the previous record held by Shakira’s classic ‘Waka Waka’ at #38.
The vision behind the song’s release must have been to bring the millions of fans that BTS and Jungkook have into the world-class phenomenon happening in Qatar. With fans from completely different walks of life, watching the World Cup opening ceremony later today will expand the hype surrounding the ceremony beyond our expectations. Having a South Asian performer as one of the night’s main acts will also fill the hearts of teams from the said region, Japan and South Korea, with pride to see one of their own up there.
