Katy Perry has released the second music video to her Olympic anthem, “Rise.”
Back with an inspirational message similar to “Firework,” Perry gets dragged through canyons, oceans, and storms by a pink parachute. And she can’t seem to gain control of her circumstances. The winds begin to change, though. Perry lifts herself up, and floats through the air and across the sky in her pink parachute.
The singer previously debuted visuals for the tracks in July. Footage of past Olympic games flashed through the screen. Crowns cheering and announcing commenting complemented her lyrics. The victory tears of athletes coming from tracks, uneven bars, pool sides, courts and fields bring everything to a close. And the iconic torch and rings flash on screen. Perry herself never appears in this video.
Check out visuals for “Rise” before the Opening Ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil.
