'Rise' - 2016 Olympics Anthem Video

It Is Finally Here...

Katy Perry's "Rise" merely has been out several short weeks, however the song has now played a task on the national and international stage. It was originally written to aid support the American Olympic athletes in Rio, and took on political prominence when Perry performed it with the Democratic National Convention.

It already have their own Olympics video, however the song didn't get its official music video until Thursday. The video shows Perry running with resistance at a parachute inflated with the wind. She later drags the parachute across a barren landscape and writhes together with the chute in the desert lake before utilizing it to fly. 

Mid-tempo soaring songs will almost always be tough to produce music videos for. Usually their lyrics don't suggest far more than just non-specific obstacle overcoming. But the song is way too serious to get too much fun along with it, like a few of her less-serious videos. As music videos go, this doesn't happen really hold a candle to her "California Gurls" or "Teenage Dream" efforts, nevertheless it does work together with the song. This one isn't gonna resonate with Kim Jong-un, let's just say. So we're bound to Perry fighting a parachute in the random landscape. The only thing this will likely get a rise beyond is Orlando Bloom's, um, paddleboarding paddle. If you catch our drift.
