Sports, music, and videogame fans, rejoice! Back in August, EA Sports announced the 27th installment of their popular FIFA series, FIFA 20, and now they have spilled the beans on the game’s soundtrack. FIFA has consistently featured music by Latin American and Latinx artists in recent years, and has helped propel the popularity of tracks by the likes of Bomba Estéreo, Ana Tijoux, Astro, La Vida Bohème, ChocQuibTown, Maluca, and many more. For this edition, it doesn’t disappoint.

With more than 100 tracks that span over 20 countries, the music of FIFA 20 is broken down in two parts: a soundtrack for its traditional gameplay and another one for its new anticipated “Volta Football” mode, inspired by street football and set in different urban locations.

For the former, the music is provided by people like Puerto Rican darlings Buscabulla (“Vámono”), and Cuban singer Danay Suárez (“La Razón del Equilibrio”). And it also features two major tracks: Rosalía and Ozuna’s “Yo x Ti, Tú x Mí” and “Que Calor,” the recently-released collaboration between Major Lazer, J Balvin, and El Alfa.

On VOLTA FOOTBALL, on the other hand, expect to hear a handful of tracks by Brazilian producer Ruxell and Leo Justi, Deorro’s “Bomba,” and the joint Sam Spiegel and Tropkillaz’s jam “Perfect,” featuring BIA and MC Pikachu. This is pure fire.

FIFA 20 is set to drop on September 27.
