NewJeans Collaborates with League of Legends for Worlds 2023 Song, “GODS”
As one of the world’s largest events in the e-sports universe, the League of Legends annual world championship has always garnered massive attention for its grandiose and impressive collaborations.
Last year, League of Legends invited American rapper and singer Lil Nas X to sing the theme song for World Championship (Worlds) 2022.
While last year’s collaboration with Lil Nas X has been full of controversies and criticism, League of Legends joined hands with one of the most legendary Kpop singers: soloist and GOT7 member, Jackson Wang.
Jackson Wang hypnotized the audience during the opening ceremony, delivering the song “Fire to the Fuse” with his unrivaled stage presence.
This year, adding to the top-tier artists who joined League of Legends in serenading their world championship anthem is NewJeans.
In collaboration with League of Legends and Riot Games Music, NewJeans delivered the most epic performance of the Worlds 2023 song, “GODS”.
An Epic and Inspiring Serenade: FIRST Kpop Group to Sing Worlds Anthem
Since the first time they made a surprising debut, NewJeans has steadily climbed to the top list of successful Kpop groups. In such a short time, NewJeans has become a new trend in the global music community with its iconic songs and Y2K fashion styles.
From its debut, “New Jeans,” to recent EPs, “Get Up,” almost all NewJeans’ songs immediately went viral upon release. And despite all the controversies of glamorizing pedophilia and indecent MV issues, NewJeans’ producer Min Hee Jin played an undeniably crucial part in the success of the Kpop group.
Due to this success, Riot Games, the developer of the world’s largest MOBA Game, League of Legends, invited NewJeans to sing the Worlds 2023 song, “GODS”.
The moment the “GODS” teaser emerged, fans immediately went into a frenzy with the unexpected collaboration. This is because many previously thought that League of Legends would invite ATEEZ for the Worlds 2023 song.
However, Riot Games Music, the subsidiary responsible for all League of Legends songs and the Kpop virtual group K/DA, announced their collaboration with NewJeans.
The collaboration was evidently successful. NewJeans delivered an epic and inspiring serenade for Worlds 2023 song, “GODS”, accompanying the journey of League of Legends world-class athletes in their journey to become the world’s #1 champion.
Many fans praised the emotional vocals of all NewJeans members, giving them goosebumps while listening to the song and watching the MV.
With this collaboration, NewJeans is the first-ever Kpop group to sing the League of Legends’s Worlds anthem.
Will NewJeans Perform “GODS” in League of Legends Worlds 2023 Finals?
Following the successful release of “GODS”, fans are curious whether NewJeans would perform the song at the League of Legends Worlds 2023 finals.
While there has been no official statement from Riot Games and HYBE ADOR, it has been an annual tradition that all League of Legends world anthem singers attend the final’s opening ceremony and perform their pieces.
Previously, various world-class artists performed their League of Legends’ worlds anthem in the opening ceremony of the finals, including (G)-IDLE Soyeon, Imagine Dragons, Lil Nas X, and Jackson Wang.
Therefore, it’s highly likely that NewJeans will continue this tradition and perform “GODS” at the Worlds 2023 Finals opening ceremony.
So, are you excited for NewJeans’ upcoming performance? Please hold your horses for now. That’s because League of Legends will hold its Worlds 2023 Finals on November 19, 2023, at Gocheok Sky Dome, Seoul. NewJeans will possibly perform “GODS” at the grand opening ceremony along with the other Worlds 2023 artists.
