Carrie Underwood, Ludacris score with Super Bowl, Olympic anthem, 'The Champion'

Although Underwood's music may already be considered country pop or new country, this track takes her to full-fledged pop, featuring electronic beats and nearly no country music indicators besides the just barely detectable twang in her voice.

The song was written by Underwood, Ludacris, and songwriters Chris DeStefano and Brett James and the Before He Cheats hitmaker explains they wanted the lyrics to be inspirational. "The Champion" is also the ideal workout boost for all of us still trying to make good on those New Year's resolutions at the gym, too. The inspirational chorus behind "The Champion" - featuring the line, "I am invincible, unbreakable, unstoppable, unshakeable" - is as smooth as a spiral off the arm of Patriots QB Tom Brady.

Carrie Underwood and Ludacris have teamed up for a song for Super Bowl LII. The country singer, 34, released a new song titled "The Champion" on Friday, January 12. "We hope the lyrics will inspire people to push themselves beyond their limits to conquer anything they are trying to accomplish or overcome", Underwood said in a statement. Luda spells out the word champion in his verse, listing the attributes it takes to become one "The C is for the courage I possess through the trauma", he raps "H is for the hurt but it's all for the honor".

"I'm a fighter like Rocky / Put you flat on your back like Ali", Underwood sings. Ludacris' vocals are also featured in the song.

The music video was filmed previous year and will premiere at the opening of the annual National Football League championship event's broadcast on February 4.
