This week, Pepsi released the fourth short film from the Beats of the Beautiful Game project. The short film is inspired by international football and Kelly Rowland’s song, “The Game” which was released Tuesday when the full album dropped.
The film directed by Spike Lee is titled “Pixote’s Game” and follows a young Brazilian boy proudly wearing his country colors as he follows a ball through the streets of his Brazilian favela, taking viewers on his passionate pursuit of his ultimate dream – ending up on a stadium-sized pitch.
The complete 11-track Pepsi Beats of the “Beautiful Game album” is an exclusive collection of anthemic songs by chart-topping musicians inspired by the energy and spirit of the world’s most popular game – football.
Distributed by Caroline, the complete album features tracks from musicians including Kelly Rowland, Janelle Monáe, Rita Ora, Don Omar, Timbaland, Santigold, R3HAB and Jetta, alongside regional favorites Pearls Negras (Brazil), Jolin Tsai (Taiwan) and Hassan El Shafei (Egypt).
