Following a brief teaser during an National Football League playoffs commercial last weekend (Jan. 7), Carrie Underwood shared a new anthemic jam "The Champion", which features rap veteran Ludacris.

Readers can press play above to hear "The Champion", which she co-wrote in 2017 with Brett James, Chris DeStefano and Ludacris, whom Underwood sought out for the collaboration. Ludacris' contribution to the track starts after the second chorus. The anthemic song was produced by Jim Jonsin. "We hope the lyrics will inspire people to push themselves beyond their limits to conquer anything they are trying to accomplish or overcome. There's a champion in every single one of us!" says Carrie.

In addition to the Super Bowl, the song will also be used during the Winter Olympic Games telecast, beginning in February.
