Daniel Regha Lil Baby u d¤n't have sports theme songs or make music that promotes !nclusion, so I'm curious to know what you'd be performing at the World Cup; Take this time to produce a new song that conveys a msg about diversity plus anti-racism, & perform it at the WC. Congrats by the way.
Patrice Moore The World Cup? Who are you entertaining...most of your fans won't watch or be there....I'm happy for your accomplishments but the World Cup? World Series would've catered a bit more to your fan base.
