Riot Announces Worlds 2023 Song: Gods by NewJeans
Worlds, the grandest event in the League of Legends universe, where gaming titans clash, and Summoner's Cup dreams come to life, is gearing up for another monumental showdown. Riot Games have pulled out all the stops, from in-game skins to physical bundles, to make Worlds a spectacle. Among their secret ingredients is the annual tradition of releasing a heart-thumping Worlds anthem, a tradition that dates back to 2014.
In the beginning, there was "Warriors" by Imagine Dragons, setting the stage ablaze with its energy and anticipation. Over the years, this tradition has become synonymous with the Worlds championship, stirring the hearts of gamers and music lovers alike. However, the reception hasn't always been unanimous. Last year's track, "Star Walkin'" by Lil Nas X, while enjoyable, lacked the signature Worlds fervor, leaving fans yearning for that unforgettable hype.
As the world braces for Worlds 2023, Riot Games has finally lifted the veil, revealing their latest sonic masterpiece: GODS, a collaboration with the chart-topping K-pop sensation, NewJeans.
GODS: Crafting the Worlds Saga with NewJeans
This year, the anthem will weave a tale around Deft, the legendary former DRX ADC main instrumental in securing DRX's world champion title. The video promises not just Deft's narrative but also showcases the indomitable team that defied all odds to claim the global championship. While NewJeans might not be synonymous with high-octane anthems traditionally associated with Worlds, Riot's teaser on Twitter hints at something truly promising, capturing the essence of the Worlds spirit.
