Why You Waiting? the track by Jamaican-born UK-based Dancehall artist Doktor featuring Agent Sasco has been included on the EA Sports FC 24 (formerly FIFA) soundtrack.
The song, which was released in March 2023, also features Serum.
EA confirmed the game’s 85-song track list, which spans over 4 hours of multi-genre hits from various artists, including The Rolling Stones, Jack Harlow, KAROL G, Charlotte Denevey, Major Lazer, and many more, per RadioTimes.com.
Following three decades of collaboration and the release of FIFA games on numerous console generations, EA has parted ways with the football governing body, resulting in FIFA 23 being the final installment of the bestselling series.
EA Sports FC 24, set to be released on September 29, 2023, is essentially the successor to the series but with a revamped appearance and the inaugural inclusion of both female and male players, who are selectable and can play together in ‘Ultimate Team.’
Why You Waiting? was Doktor’s first release for this year, following previous releases like On Me, No Drama, and Love.
The song serves as an inspiration to motivate listeners to pursue their dreams, whatever they may be. Agent Sasco skillfully manipulates the rhythm as he spits his lines.
“Get off the platform,get on the train/ Left out the airport get on the plane/Left off the sideline get in the game/ Don’t make no excuse go mek your name/ Right now a your time, so mek a play/Yuh nuh see sun a shine? Go mek the hay/Now we just a preverb and no delay/ Don’t badda wid the lazy bone this is a fillet…,” he deejays in part.
Doktor took to Instagram yesterday (September 21) to highlight this surreal accomplishment.
“It’s crazy, the game I’ve been demolishing people on for years, my single “Why You Waiting” is now part of the EA FC24 soundtrack. 🙏🏾,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, Agent Sasco recently revealed that he has been locked away working on an album. He posted a reel earlier this week with behind-the-scenes footage in the recording booth.
Last year, Koffee’s Pull Up and Shenseea’s Run Run made the soundtrack for FIFA 23.
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.
