If you follow the FIFA World Cup, you may already know that every four years, the organization commissions an official anthem to represent the event. These multilingual songs are then used as warm-ups to the event, in addition to serving as a little momento from the big day.

But sometimes the songs become popular hits — and we're not even aware of their connection to fútbol. Here are four of the most popular, starting with...

At the Billboard awards show over the weekend, Michael Jackson performed as a hologram. That is a sentence we now say and it is true. Jackson's hologram sang along to a newly-released song, "Slave to the Rhythm," the latest off his posthumous album Xscape.

Recently, we talked about couples who made a music video together to profess their undying devotion, only to break up or divorce some time down the road. Some of these artists were even repeat offenders (looking at you, Britney and J.Lo). But maybe couples in music videos isn't all bad?

Here are five couples who starred in a music video with one another and stayed together.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill first got together in 1996. Since then, they've starred in five music videos together, including "It's Your Love"; "I Need You"; "Let's Make Love"; "Just To Hear You Say That You Love Me"; and "Like We Never Loved At All" (above). They've had even more songs together, and they currently have a Las Vegas residency called Soul2Soul. Although there have been recent rumors that they might be going through a tough time, so far, the couple still belongs on this list.
