Justin Timberlake will be headlining the halftime show at Super Bowl LII (perhaps in some sort of flannel ensemble to match his new album's purportedly country aesthetic), but it's up to Carrie Underwood to open the show. The up-tempo track includes electronic beats, a piano melody and speaker-banging bass, while the empowering lyrics celebrate being "born to win". "There's a champion in every single one of us", she said, motivating and inspiring every one of her fans, followers, and friends.

And if the title didn't already give it away, the anthem has a strong upbeat, inspirational vibe, making it ideal for NBC's Super Bowl and Winter Olympic Games coverage, where the song will be featured, according to the video's description.

He says, "It was a pleasure to collaborate with Carrie for this inspirational song". The song will also be accompanied by a video during the opening on Feburary 4.

The long wait to hear Carrie Underwood's Super Bowl anthem "The Champion" is over as the superstar has released the uplifting track.
