Teaming up Budweiser beer to release “The World is Yours To Take,” the song by Lil Baby was released on Friday (9,12) as part of the first-ever official FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 soundtrack.

Sampling the chorus from the Tears For Fears 1985 hit song “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” In a press release shared by Lil Baby’s team, the “Drip Too Hard” rapper revealed that the song is “special” for him stating:

“It’s about the journey we’ve all been on over the last few years and celebrating what’s next.” “When I started in music in 2017, I went all in on a dream that brought me to where I am now, and that’s what I want fans to feel when they hear the song. I hope it makes you feel like you’re walking out onto the pitch at the World Cup making moves toward your own dreams, whatever that means to you.” 

On December 3rd “The World Is Yours To Take” will be celebrated on Lil Baby’s 28th birthday with a live performance at the tournament’s Budweiser Hotel. The attached music video for the track will be shot during this year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar from Sunday (11.20) through Sunday (12.18) and Budweiser is scheduled to release new versions of the song alongside other major acts.
