BTS' Jungkook's Dreamers or Shakira's Waka Waka: Twitter is up in arms over which was the better of two iconic FIFA World Cup anthems.

BTS’ Jungkook took the FIFA World Cup 2022 opening ceremony by storm with his performance of ‘Dreamers’. The banger of a show put up by Jungkook inevitably ushered in a host of comparisons to Shakira and even started some debates over which of the two icons delivered the better FIFA anthem. It has been 12 years since Shakira’s ‘Waka Waka’- FIFA World Cup theme song in 2010- became a pop culture phenomenon. Jungkook’s performance, celebrated by legions of ARMYs and other fans, is having a similar moment on the Internet.

As it happens on Twitter, some debates, too, have erupted. While many have called Jungkook a worthy successor to Shakira, others are trying to settle the score using numbers of likes and retweets. “Waka Waka has passed the crown to Dreamers," a Twitter user wrote. “The spirit of Shakira resides within Jeon Jungkook," said another.
