Watch Jungkook Perform Dreamers at the FIFA World Cup

BTS’s Jungkook debuted his new single for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, “Dreamers,” at midnight on Sunday night, before giving a rousing live performance at the World Cup opening ceremony in Qatar that night.

“Dreamers” is a high-energy anthem about believing in oneself imbued with emotion, much like the FIFA World Cup songs that came before it, like “Waka Waka” by Shakira, “The Time of Our Lives” by Il Divo and Toni Braxton, and “La Copa de la Vida (The Cup of Life)” by Ricky Martin.

While the official track released on Spotify only features Jungkook singing lead vocals, Qatari singer Fahad Al Kubaisi joined Jungkook during the live performance at the World Cup opening ceremony to sing a verse in Arabic, with both stars surrounded by dancers. Shortly after the performance, Fahad posted on Twitter about the experience, writing, “I can’t express my gratitude and happiness for my participation in the biggest event of all times the World Cup in my country #Qatar with the talented Jung kook, thank you for everything.”

BTS members J-Hope, RM, V, Jimin, and Suga all posted on Instagram and Weverse to congratulate Jungkook on his momentous performance.
