First Listen: Beyoncé’s New Song ‘Rise Up’ From The ‘Epic’ Soundtrack Hits The Internets


Back in March we got our first look at the animated character that is voiced by Beyoncé in the new film Epic. Because Bey is a featured character in the film, it makes total sense that she would contribute a song to the film’s soundtrack. As I understand it, Beyoncé has not been performing this new song, titled Rise Up, live in concert on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour but if you click below, you can hear the studio version of the track in full. Take a listen, won’t you?

Like her song Standing on the Sun, Rise Up was penned by Sia (who also wrote songs for Beyoncé‘s new album, due out in November) and is a rousing anthem that, I’m guessing, fits in well with the Epic storyline. After a couple of listens, I can say that I like the track but I’m not sure I’m crazy in love with it. That said, any bit of new Bey music is welcome, especially since we have so many months left to wait before she finally decides to release her new album. What do y’all think of Rise Up? Do you like?
