EA Sports FC 24 Embracing Diversity

The popular video game franchise, formerly known as FIFA, has become synonymous with bringing the playlist to the pitch. Traditionally, the football console game mixes genres and has both new and old songs.

Perhaps recognising its global appeal, the game has, EA sports has now integrated lesser known artists among established names.

The new edition will have over 100 artists representing more than 30 countries featured to ensure all tastes are accounted for. The established names include Kendrick Lamar, Stormzy, Jack Harlow, and J. Cole. In addition, musical legends The Rolling Stones make the list

The premiere of EA Sports FC 24 delivers a definitive global soundtrack that builds on innovation and authenticity like never before,” Steve Schnur, EA’s President of Music, said in a statement.

We’ve curated a player experience that celebrates diversity and discovery via new music and artists that defies genres, erases borders, creates football culture, and powers football life.” He added.
