French pop star Willy William performs at Expo 2020 Dubai this weekend

French pop star and Beyonce collaborator Willy William will be taking to the stage to play live at Expo 2020 Dubai this weekend.

The French DJ and singer best known for his 2017 collaboration ‘Mi Gente’ will play the Jubilee Stage this Sunday at 8 pm.

And we could well be hearing a lot more of him this year as his new single ‘Trompeta’ is in the running to be the official 2022 Fifa World Cup anthem.

The track wasn’t written specifically for the Qatar event. But with its Guru Josh sample and ultra-infectious melody, it sounds like the perfect track.

“I just wanted to create a song for people to have fun when they can go out safely again,” Willy William told The National.

“I feel that 2022 will be the year where we will really bounce back and people are having a bigger sense of freedom and positivity that they didn’t have before.

“So what we need now is not another sad or heartbreaking song, we need music that makes us happy again.”
