The Seoul Dynasty have partnered with Korean-American musicians pH-1 and DaviDior to produce a walk-on track entitled "82" for use during its Overwatch League matches, the team announced on Friday.

The song, named after the Korean country calling code, will debut in the team's Friday match against the Philadelphia Fusion, which kicks off at 11 p.m. EST (8 p.m. PST). The song is the first unique entrance music for an Overwatch League team.

"pH-1 and DaviDior are both incredible musicians, and when we learned that they were fans of our Seoul Dynasty team, we knew we had to work together to make something great happen," Dynasty chief growth officer Arnold Hur said in a press release. "We took a lot of feedback from our team about what kind of music they liked and worked closely with both pH-1 and DaviDior to put together something that our fans around the world could get excited about."

The track mixes Korean music-esque rhythms with English vocals. DaviDior, the producer of the track, also produced "I'm the One," the hit single by DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

"I wanted to let the team know that I'm going to support them from beginning to end, and I thought this was a great opportunity to do something innovative and work with the game and team I love," DaviDior said. "I want to thank Blizzard and the Seoul Dynasty organization for making it happen, and I expect we'll see more great collaborations with music and gaming in the future."

The Seoul Dynasty was founded in October after its parent organization, KSV Esports (now renamed to Gen.G Esports), acquired a slot in the Overwatch League in June 2017 and then the roster of South Korean Overwatch team Lunatic-Hai in August. Gen.G also houses teams in League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Clash Royale and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. The organization says that the partnership is the "first of many lifestyle collaborations" for the Dynasty and other Gen.G teams.
