Jennifer Lopez won't perform the World Cup's official song alongside fellow artists Pitbull and Claudia Leitte during the tournament's opening ceremony in Brazil, FIFA officials said Sunday.
Football World Cup governing body said Lopez cannot perform at 12th July event as earlier planned because of unspecified "production issues."
