Dubai, 4th February 2022: Garena Free Fire has today released an exclusive Arabic-language soundtrack after collaborating with two of the Middle East and North Africa’s (MENA) young music artists – Skaymen and Egypt’s Naaoum – to celebrate the launch of its brand-new, in-game campaign Squad BEATz.
Available today on Spotify, Anghami, YouTube, and Apple music platforms, the verses of the original English song have been adapted to Arabic with the lyrics performed by well-known Moroccan rapper Skaymen, and popular Egyptian star Naaoum, bringing the track to life and inspiring the region’s Free Fire players.
The soundtrack, produced by BBTV MENA, touches on embracing future challenges, breaking down barriers, having the right winning mentality, and being motivated as ever to be successful. The song closes with references to ‘Booyah’, which symbolises victory in a Free Fire game.
The 3-minute song re-affirms Skaymen’s position as one of the leading creative rappers in the region, with his smash hit ‘Skaymen Vampire’ attracting a record hit of more than six million views on YouTube. Other key achievements during his impressive career include winning the Maroc Web Award, one of the country’s most significant awards.
Garena Free Fire releases Arabic soundtrack featuring Moroccan rapper Skaymen and Egyptian star Naaoum to celebrate new campaign
Skaymen said: “When I first heard about the opportunity to work with Garena Free Fire for its new campaign, I was really excited, and it was one that I simply could not turn down. I really enjoyed every second of being involved in this soundtrack which is absolutely amazing and I hope my fans and Free Fire gamers enjoy it too and inspire them when playing Free Fire.”
The soundtrack is the latest in Naaoum’s career, who is better known for her songs ‘Fad Magales’ and ‘Keda Eib’, which helped boost her popularity in Egypt.
“It is a privilege to have partnered with Garena Free Fire for this song to celebrate their new campaign Squad BEATz,” said Naaoum. “It was a really enjoyable experience and I encourage as many of my fans and the Free Fire community in the MENA region to check out this fantastic song.”
On 12th February, Free Fire’s music video Squad BEATz will be released. True to Squad BEATz’s core, the theme song will showcase a unique blend of four genres – reggae, funk, pop, and K-pop.
These genres represent the four Free Fire characters of Squad BEATz– Alvaro, Notora, Shirou, and Kapella – who all often feel out of place and different from others around them.
In turn, this strengthens their resolve to prove and express themselves through other means, such as style and music. With their own unique cultures and personalities, Free Fire’s Squad BEATz embraces each other’s individuality as they battle their way through in Free Fire.
Just like Free Fire’s Squad BEATz, the upcoming campaign seeks to empower players in the MENA region to celebrate their individuality and unique personalities by expressing themselves through four vibrant in-game costumes, musical genres, and unique battling styles.
Free Fire fans and players can also look forward to expressing their unique fashion styles in the game while also battling together in style with their squad with a revamped interface, exclusive collectibles, as well as an exciting line-up of in-game missions.
Fans can get a sneak preview of what’s to come here.
The Alvaro costume bundle features an electrifying shade of blue. With a pair of stylish joggers and kicks, Alvaro can move to his favourite genre of music, reggae, in complete comfort.
A purple flame emanates from Notora’s fiery outfit. This funky get-up oozes confidence and fun – a perfect pick to throw on when it is time to squad up and party to funk music with her team!
A smoke-emitting outfit adorns Shirou. Luminescent accents enhance the overall appeal of Shirou’s ensemble and give the pop music fan a cool aura.
