'Cover the World' is part of a widespread campaign to celebrate the arrival of a new car, the 2013 Chevrolet Spark and its release in the US and Canada. MTV and Chevrolet plan to announce the song by Monday, September 17th.

'Cover the World' aims to reinvent the cover song as a way to reach out to different cultures and welcome the Chevy Spark in the States. The artists were chosen for their maximum sonic diversity. They are all famous in their native countries and are trying to breakout into foreign territories as well. Wonder Girls, known for being the first South Korean act to have had a song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, will sing a pop rendition. 

Fans will vote at www.covertheworld.com for the "Cover the World" artists to reimagine one of the following songs:

  • "True Colors" - Cyndi Lauper
  • "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" - Pat Benatar
  • "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" - Bachman-Turner Overdrive
  • "Son of a Preacher Man" - Dusty Springfield
  • "Take On Me" - A-Ha

Fans who vote will earn a chance to win a Chevy Spark, as well as a VIP trip for two to see one of the featured acts perform live.  Fans can also create, upload and share their own cover version for a chance to win a Chevy Spark. The Spark is a sporty 4-passenger hatchback.
