The genre-defining music icon Lenny Kravitz is commonly known for being the rockstar he is. But besides that skin, Kravitz is also a lifelong football fan who was tapped to participate in Pepsi’s NFL Anthem Program in 2012. Kravitz wrote the song, ‘Like a Jet’ for the New York Jets and performed it during the Jets-Patriots game.

Even though the UCL is no NFL premise, the anthem does hold significance to his love for football. Hence, Kravitz could really lean on the track for a pre-party for Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

4. Let Love Rule

Known as one of the best songs of his musical career, ‘Let Love Rule’ served as the slogan he lived by when he sheltered himself in a loft on Broome Street in New York City. Kravitz shared with Rolling Stone how he had written the three-word phrase on the wall next to the elevator, but later penned a track to bring life to the words.

Since football matches tend to get a little tense sometimes, Kravitz’s slogan could work like a messiah before the scoreboard fluctuates. 

3. Are You Gonna Go My Way

Lenny Kravitz released the track ‘Are You Gonna Go My Way’ from the 1993 album of the same name. The track won Kravitz several Grammy nominations and is a testament to his success on its own. The song begins with one of the greatest guitar riffs of all time, where the strum of the guitar is enough to make fans stand on their feet. Hence, what better way to warm up the battlefield than by keeping the men on their toes?

2. Spirit In My Heart

For Lenny Kravitz, 2024 marks a year of musical greatness with his new album, ‘Blue Electric Light,’ already making waves on playlists and set to hit the shelves next week. With an extensive back catalog at his disposal, the rockstar might opt to perform a medley for the big night.
