The dust has settled for Riot Games’ 2023 League Of Legends World Championship and the players’ year-long grind has finally come to an end. The game’s early supporters probably could have never imagined the immense growth and longevity of the scene. However, Riot Games have become pioneers, constantly elevating Esports to new heights.
For the past several years, they’ve enlisted the help of talented artists to create a theme song for Worlds to build up an ever-growing wave of hype as the best teams battle it out to hoist the Summoner’s Cup. The anthem for “Worlds 2023” was sung by none other than world-renowned girl group, NewJeans. Their performance on the finals stage was impeccable, leaving even viewers at home in complete and utter awe. Check out a video of their performance down below.
There was also EXO’s BaekHyun who performed as one of the voices for Riot Games’ new boy group, HEARTSTEEL. They are not the first K-Pop idols to collaborate with the gaming company and certainly are not the last.
