The ICC announced the official anthem on Friday around 50 days before the start of the tournament. The track produced by Michael “Tano” Montano will be accompanied by the song’s film clip, featuring several well-known stars.

Sean Paul who has been one of the most popular figures in the music industry for over two decades, says that he captures the essence of Caribbean music.

“Cricket has always been a major part of our culture, so I’m honored to record the official anthem for the T20 World Cup.”

“I’m a big fan of Kes, and the track will feature a nice touch of the Caribbean, with some dance, to an international vibe, and of course, Soca – it will be a real anthem for people to sing out and feel the spirit of unity.”

Kees Dieffenthaller, who was known as Kes and the lead singer of Trinidad and Tabago-based Kes the Band, intends to bring a unique vibe to the tournament via the anthem.

“Our mission has always been about bringing worlds together, so blending cricket with music is a powerful combination. Shoutouts to Sean Paul, Tano, and the whole team for creating this musical vibe.”

“Can’t wait for everyone to sing along to this worldwide anthem and bring the party to stadiums across the West Indies and the USA.”

ICC General Manager, Marketing and Communications, Claire Furlong, is excited to look forward to the work of the artists in a song that will appeal to cricket fans the world over.

“We are delighted to have two globally recognized artists who are at the top of their genres Sean Paul and Kes produce our tournament anthem, which will set the tone for the biggest cricket carnival spectacle ever.

“Fans can expect a song that will reflect the Caribbean identity while retaining universal appeal for global cricket fans, themed around the event’s marketing campaign ‘Out of this World'”.
