Lil’ Nas X (the unofficial president of League of Legends) has teamed up with LoL Esports to reveal the Worlds 22 anthem, STAR WALKIN’. Check out the music video above.
“We wanted this year’s Worlds anthem to have that North American flair while also truly embodying the One&Only brand, unapologetically individual. And who better to represent that idea than Lil Nas X? said Carrie Dunn, Global Creative Director, Esports at Riot Games. “Lil Nas X took our vision and took it to the next level. ‘STAR WALKIN’ perfectly captures the relentless competitive drive of our professionals; that burning desire to claim your place in history and reach for the stars. It is the essence of every pro’s journey to the World Finals and lifting the coveted Summoner’s Cup. The World Anthem comes with great expectations. You need to inspire our professionals, excite our fans and prepare a live audience of thousands in the stadium – and a stream of millions – for the ultimate competitive matchup. And I can say with confidence that ‘STAR WALKIN’ did just that.”
From the press release:
“The video highlights the iconic landmarks of San Francisco, the destination city of the World Finals, and League of Legends pros past and present. The setting transforms as professionals move through the city, showcasing the sport’s iconic place in culture and the dominance of each professional as they make their mark on the world. An easter egg can be found in almost every shot, from regional league style to giant champions turned mechs to fun facts about LoL Esports pros.”
STAR WALKIN’ is available on YouTube and Spotify. Meanwhile, Worlds 2022 will kick off with the Play-In Stage on September 29, 2022 in Mexico City.
