Shenseea, Koffee On FIFA 23 Soundtrack

Grammy Award-winner Koffee and Grammy-nominated artist Shenseea have both landed spots on the FIFA 23 soundtrack.

Sporting fans got a peak of the full list today courtesy of EA Sports with over 100 songs from 34 countries—of which Koffee’s Pull Up and Shenseea’s Run Run made the cut. 

This comes ahead of a new edition of the FIFA series set for release on September 30 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Stadia, PS4 and Xbox One.

Produced JAE5, Pull Up was originally released on February 3 this year, and subsequently appeared on Koffee’s debut album—Gifted released via Promised Land/RCA.

The official visuals have garnered over 9.5 million views on YouTube.

Gifted debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart, and has so far spent 24 weeks on the listing.

Shenseea’s Run Run made its debut on July 16, 2021. Produced by Stephen ‘Di Genius’ McGregor, Run Run bears a close resemblance to Steelie and Cleevie’s digital innovative drum patterns that formed the foundation of some of Jamaica’s biggest hits from the 90s.

Her video, directed by Christian Breslauer (Roddy Rich, Doja Cat, Lil Baby), has amassed over 7.8 million YouTube views.

Buju Banton, Koffee, Govana, and Rvssian previously appeared on the FIFA 21 soundtrack, while Shenseea linked with rapper Belly for the Madden NFL 22 soundtrack.

In addition to the two Jamaican acts, FIFA 23 players can expect to hear songs from Bad Bunny, Gorillaz, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, Jack Harlow, Rosalía, Central Cee, M.I.A., Loyle Carner, Nas, Denzel Curry, Remi Wolf, and more.

Raphaella Lima, Global Music Marketing Director at EA, said: “this year’s soundtrack demonstrates the breadth of the world’s love for the game, capturing sounds from all sides of the globe.”

“We wanted to emphasise the importance of our global football community through music and we’re excited to partner with this incredible group of artists to provide the songs and anthems for the most expansive FIFA ever.”

Steve Schnur, President of EA is equally pleased with the compilation, particularly because of the traction that it has been getting from fans.

“A friend of mine who lives in London says that all of his friends continually argue over the best football songs in the pub, and they’d be by bands from 2003, 2006 and so on,” he is reported to have said.

“[FIFA] has become the ownership of what football means to them, musically-speaking. We used to say that we’re following culture. [Now] we’re creating culture and, dare I say, we are culture.”
