We Sing is set to build on the existing We Sing karaoke franchise titles by raising the bar to support the use of eight microphones at once. The new game is also set to include 30 hot tracks, including classic karaoke hits from the likes of Abba, and more recent chart-toppers. The track list currently includes “Dancing Queen” by Abba and the late great David Bowie’s iconic classic “Let’s Dance”, alongside DNCE’s “Cake By The Ocean,” “Stitches” by Shawn Mendes, “Chandelier” by Sia, and “See You Again” by Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth, with more tracks to be confirmed by We Sing Productions in "the coming weeks".

The free companion smartphone app will allow players to use their phone as an additional mic and take full advantage of the eight mic support. We Sing will showcase the music videos of the featured tracks and original artist recordings, as can be seen in the screenshots, below:
