LISTEN: Katy Perry's Just Dropped Her New Song 'Rise', And It's As Powerful As They Get!

Katy Perry 'Rise'

The song which is set to be the theme tune to the upcoming Olympic Games will give you all of the motivation you'll ever need.

Not quite content with being the largest-selling digital artist in history, Katy Perry has collaborated with the Rio 2016 Olympics to create 'Rise', her latest single, which sounds NOTHING like she's done before.

This anthem is a powerful message of hope, with Perry opening with the lyrics "I won’t just survive / Oh, you will see me thrive".

'Rise' is set to be the prime song to feature during the Olympics' coverage this year, including the ceremony's opening ceremony, as well as to be viewed in more than 20,000 movie theaters during an original “Rise” cinema spot.

"This is a song that’s been brewing inside me for years, that has finally come to the surface. I was inspired to finish it now, rather than save it for my next album, because now more than ever, there is a need for our world to unite" Katy Perry said. "I know that together we can rise above the fear - in our country, and around the world. I can’t think of a better example than the Olympic athletes..."

Katy Perry 'Rise' Lyrics: 

I won’t just survive
Oh, you will see me thrive
Can’t write my story
I’m beyond the archetype

I won’t just conform
No matter how you shake my core
‘Cause my roots they run deep, oh

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don’t doubt it, don’t doubt it
Victory is in my veins
I know it, I know it
And I will not negotiate
I’ll fight it, I’ll fight it
I will transform

When, when the fire’s at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They’re whispering, "You’re out of time”
But still I rise

This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don’t be surprised
I will still rise

I must stay conscious
Through the madness and chaos
So I call on my angels
They say

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don’t doubt it, don’t doubt it
Victory is in your veins
You know it, you know it
And you will not negotiate
Just fight it, just fight it
And be transformed

‘Cause when, when the fire’s at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They’re whispering, "You’re out of time”
But still I rise

This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don’t be surprised
I will still rise

Don’t doubt it, don’t doubt it
Oh, oh, oh, oh
You know it, you know it
Still rise
Just fight it, just fight it
Don’t be surprised
I will still rise

And - of course - Twitter reacted in the only way Twitter could...
