Korean esports organisation T1 has once again collaborated with South Korean music producer Raiden to create a new League of Legends World Championship anthem.

The song, called ‘Last Man Standing’, features popular Kpop group THE BOYZ and is produced by Raiden.

According to a press release sent to Inven Global, the lyrics have been designed to express the fans’ ‘energy and passion’ for its team. The song was teased earlier this month, but the music video was officially released today ahead of the opening day of the League of Legends World Championship Group Stage. 

T1 will officially start its campaign on October 8th against Chinese organisation — and current world champion — EDG. 

This is Raiden’s second Worlds anthem for T1 following the release of ‘Runner’ in 2021. Last year’s song featured the likes of K-pop singer Baekhyun and rapper CHANGMO.

The collaboration between T1, THE BOYZ and Raiden continues to highlight the growing relationship between music and esports. Earlier this week, Gen.G named popular Korean American artist Jay Park as its Music and Entertainment adviser and also released a Worlds anthem. Moreover, Giants Games has teamed up with Sony Music Spain and earlier this year a Brazilian music festival featured an arena dedicated to esports.

For its official Worlds anthem, Riot Games announced a collaboration with Lil Nas X titled STAR WALKIN’. Alongside performing the track at the opening ceremony, the artist will also be co-designing a League of Legends skin. 

T1 has had a fruitful year,  both competitively and commercially. The organisation was recently announced as a VCT Pacific partner team, and has secured partnerships with Smart and sports agency CAA Sports.

The music video is available now on T1’s official Youtube channel and as of this writing has around 120,000 views.
