The album included his multiplatinum single "Wavin' Flag," which saw worldwide success after being selected by Coca-Cola as their theme song for their FIFA 2010 FIFA World Cup™ campaign. Declared the "People's Anthem" with its message of hope and solidarity, the single reached #1 in over 18 countries and also topped Billboard's European Hot 100 Singles chart.
In addition, K'naan has won a variety of awards including four Junos including Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year and was also nominated for a Polaris Music Prize, as well as a BBC Newcomer of the Year award.
