Just when we thought Katy Perry was being awfully silent music-wise, she went on and dropped a new song – her first in three years – which also happens to be the anthem of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio!
The track has that athletic spirit of healthy competition going on, complete with an inspiring music video. In the clip, we get to revisit some of past Olympics’ most memorable moments, while witnessing athletes strive and ultimately get to the top – or in some cases, fail and get up again.
“I know that together we can rise above the fear – in our country, and around the world,” said Perry in a statement for the Today Show. “I can’t think of a better example coming up than the Olympic athletes, as they gather together in Rio with their strength and fearlessness, to remind us how we all can come together, with the resolve to be the best we can be.”
