That was quick!
On Thursday, Katy Perry surprised us by releasing her first song since 2013, and we cannot stop listening to the inspiring track titled Rise.
And to hammer in just how motivational this summer anthem is, Katy Kat dropped an Olympics themed music video for the new power ballad on Friday!

Watching all these inspiring visuals from past Olympics games layered on top of the songstress’s fearless track makes us feel like we could train for the Rio Olympics ourselves!

As for why Rise was released before Miz Perry finished her upcoming album, the songstress felt the powerful track needed to be heard now because of “the overall mood of the world today.”
