Katy Perry has released the music video for her song “Rise” just in time for the Olympics to start!
“Rise” was released last month as the official theme song for NBC’s coverage of the 2016 Olympics. The inspirational anthem is about making a comeback just when people think you’re down and out. Perry sings, “Don’t be surprised/I will still rise.”

Following its debut, an Olympics-themed music video was also released. Footage of Team USA athletes participating in past games played with Perry’s song serving as the soundtrack. It has since been used in various NBC commercials in anticipation of Friday’s opening ceremony in Rio, and Perry performed it at the DNC last week to support Hillary Clinton.
But now Perry has a video for the track that’s all her own. In the clip, the pop star does battle with a parachute. But after being dragged away, stuck on some rocks, and plunged into the water below, she manages to pull off a resurrection.
Katy Perry’s “Rise” music video premiered on Thursday night. She tweeted:
