Beyonce Gets ‘Epic’ With New Song ‘Rise Up’

From ‘Bow Down’ to ‘Rise Up,’ we’re strapping ourselves in for the Beyonce musical roller coaster. The singer has dropped ‘Rise Up,’ her new song from the animated film ‘Epic.’

Bey voices the role of Queen Tara in the film, so it’s no surprise that she’d also appear on the accompanying soundtrack. The song is broad, sweeping and, well, epic, and it showcases the diva voice that made Queen Bey a household name. She’s all kinds of royal — onscreen, in real life and in this song.

The song was co-written by Sia, and it’s uplifting and empowering. It finds Bey offering words of encouragement about being a warrior and fighting for what you believe in. It’s a feel-good song and rated-G, stripped of any street sass, all the while retaining Bey’s signature room-filling vocals. Since the song appears in a children’s film, we’d expect it to be family-friendly.

It’s certainly both musically and lyrically appropriate for Blue Ivy. Perhaps this is mommy’s new lullaby!

When King Bey coos, Rise up, rise up little man / Don’t be scared / I’m holding your hand / Rise up, rise up little woman / Don’t be afraid to risk it all,” you can’t help but feel like you, too, can conquer the world.
