The song is an unreleased song designed specifically for the Riot Games game

Lil Nas X, rapper recently elected “honorary president” of League of Legends, has released a song and video of Star Walkin ‘, the official anthem of the online competitive gaming world cup. “We wanted this year’s World Cup anthem to have a special North American touch and fully embody the ‘The One and Only’ brand in all its bold individuality. And who better than Lil Nas X can represent this idea?” said Carrie Dunn, Riot Games Creative Head of Esports. “Lil Nas X has taken our vision and taken it to the next level. Star Walkin ‘perfectly captures the tireless competitive drive that drives our professionals, the burning desire to conquer one’s place in history and reach for the stars. It is the essence of each professional player’s journey to the World Cup final and the moment when he will lift the coveted Summoner’s Cup. There are always very high expectations on the World Cup anthem. The song must motivate the pros, turn on the fans and preparing a live audience of thousands, and remotely millions, of spectators for the show of the final match of the tournament. And I can say with certainty that Star Walkin ‘does it perfectly. ” The video shows the most iconic symbols of San Francisco, destination of the World Cup final, and professional League of Legends players of the past and present. The environment changes as the protagonists move around the city. Easter eggs in almost every shot, from references to regional leagues to giant champions turned into mechs and anecdotes about LoL esports professionals. The 2022 World Cup will kick off with qualifiers on September 29 in Mexico City. During this phase, matches will begin at 10pm and 8pm, for the last best of five games.
