First order of business: Make Worlds 2022 the most talked about Worlds in history, starting with the beloved Worlds Music Video and Anthem
The President of League of Legends Lil Nas X and LoL Esports are ready to reveal this year’s highly anticipated World Championship anthem: ‘STAR WALKIN’.
Created by Lil Nas X, ‘STAR WALKIN’ is a fresh new take on the Worlds anthem that celebrates LoL Esports fans and pro players alike.
“We wanted this year’s Worlds anthem to have that North American flair while truly embodying the One&Only brand – unapologetic in its individuality. And who better to represent that idea than Lil Nas X?” said Carrie Dunn, Global Head of Creative, Esports at Riot Games. “Lil Nas X tapped into our vision and took it to the next level. ‘STAR WALKIN’ perfectly captures the relentless competitive drive of our pros; that burning desire to claim your place in history and reach the stars. It’s the essence of each pro’s journey to the World Final and lifting the coveted Summoner’s Cup. The Worlds Anthem comes with high expectations. It needs to inspire our pros, hype our fans, and prepare a live stadium audience of thousands – and a broadcast of millions – for the ultimate competitive showdown. And I can confidently say ‘STAR WALKIN’ did just that.”
The video highlights iconic landmarks in San Francisco, the destination city for the World Final, and League of Legends pros past and present. The environment transforms as the pros move throughout the city, showcasing the sport’s iconic place in culture and the mastery of each pro as they leave their mark on the world.
