It seems that every Olympic season we are treated to a new hype video. Four years ago, it was X Ambassadors and Jamie N Commons‘s “Jungle”, unofficially, and now we get “Rise” by Katy Perry. Let’s be honest, I am a sucker for a good hype video and this is no different. The song itself it catchy and dramatic. It is everything you look for in a song to get the blood pumping to create national pride. You get a ton of highlights from previous Olympic performances and all of the media stars are attempting to outshine one another. It really does make it feel like it is summer and the Rio Games are just around the corner!
It is also a great way for Katy Perry to promote her upcoming album by the same name, Rise. Here’s hoping that the rest of the album is as catchy and dramatic as “Rise.”
Check out the video below and be prepared to be hyped! If you want to buy “Rise” by Katy Perry, it is exclusively on iTunes.
