EXO’s ‘Power’ Will Be Played at World Cup 2018 After Beating Out BTS’ ‘Fake Love’

However, fans of the ‘Fake Love’ hitmakers don’t have to be sad as the seven-piece boyband wins a separate poll on Instagram.

EXO will once again take over an international sport event with their songs. On July 4, FIFA posted on its official Twitter account a tweet asking fans which song they would like to hear inside the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. After a day of intense voting, the results are in with the group’s song “Power” coming out as the winner.

The song narrowly beat out another strong contender, BTS’ (Bangtan Boys) hit song “Fake Love”. Other songs which were included in the choice were J Balvin‘s “Mi Gente” and Zedd‘s “The Middle” featuring Maren Morris and Grey.

But don’t be sad, BTS fans. Alex Stone, the social media manager for the World Cup, also revealed that BTS had won a separate poll on Instagram. Thus, both groups’ song will be played during the final game. “Great news. We also ran a poll on Instagram. Fans of both groups are winners! Enjoy the rest of the day/evening,” he tweeted.

On the photo-sharing site, fans were made to choose between BTS’ “Fake Love”, Avicii‘s “Hey Brother” and K’Naan‘s “Waving Flag”.

While this will be the seven-piece group’s first time taking over an international sport event, EXO previously took the stage at the closing ceremony of PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games. They wowed the crowd and viewers at home with renditions of “Growl” and “Power”.
