New FIFA is just around the corner, and with it comes another premier soundtrack to get hooked on whilst playing one invigorating match after another. Each year, FIFA takes pride in their curation, collecting a variety of genres from an assortment of cultures—perfect for the international spectacle of soccer. This year is no different.

With tracks from Major Lazer, J Balvin, ROSALÍA, BJ The Chicago Kid, Skepta, Sofi Tukker, Jai Paul, The Knocks, Cautious Clay, half•alive, GoldLink, and many more, this small portion of the 38-piece soundtrack only begins to explain its diversity in sound. Not only is there a heavy mix of styles, but FIFA also places importance on music discovery by highlighting up-and-coming artists with as little as 50,000 streams on Spotify to their names.

FIFA 20 is the 27th edition of the highly popular gaming series, and it’s set to drop September 27, 2019.
