Brazilian Artist Leo Justi Soundtracks Nike's New World Cup Ad: Watch


Nike’s new Brazil World Cup spot features music by “heavy baile” artist Leo Justi; “Larga o Aço” was just released as a single on Waxplotation Records. The song pumps up the ad, which features members the Brazilian team and young street players who are all psyched to seek revenge for Brazil’s loss on their home turf to Germany in the 2014 World Cup semi-final.

The Rio-Based Justi, who on his Facebook page describes his sound as “music that make people dance in a way they get kinda horny,” mixes the baile funk favela sound with global electronic beats.
