Beyoncé Records ‘Rise Up’ for ‘Epic’ Soundtrack

Rise Up

While we patiently wait for Beyoncé’s new album, the pop icon has something to hold fans over. Queen B has recorded an original song for the Epic soundtrack.

“Rise Up” was written by Beyoncé and Sia (“Diamonds”) and produced by Hit-Boy (“Bow Down”) and Chase N. Cashe (“Drop the World”). The track will be released by Bey’s label, Columbia Records, this month.

In addition to the soundtrack, Beyoncé lends her voice to Queen Tara in Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios’ 3D CG adventure comedy. The film hits theaters nationwide on May 24.

The 31-year-old singer is currently playing shows overseas on “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.” The U.S. leg kicks off June 28 in Los Angeles.

    @2bad2bme,

    Don’t understand why ‘Diamonds’ is in brackets as if Sia hasn’t written Beyoncé songs before!

    exactly how much of this song did she write? what was the exact contribution, these days a song credit is so vague that it could represent a couple of words. especially for these big stars with an arsenal of people that do all the hard creative work for them

    I’m over her. A lot of R&B chicks are releasing music this summer, so I no longer NEED a Beyonce single.

    Honestly, she has a lot already on her plate. She can’t do it all and “promote” an album at the same time. Her schedule is too busy for that. Just as long as I keep seeing Beyoncé’s name on something, I can wait.

    We all dam well known Beyonce did not write shot bits just a stick to get publishing and because it’s a soundtrack it may get nominated for Oscar or golden globe

    She can’t write songs or music? See ya’ll got the game twisted what ya’ll fail to realize is if she change a whole verse in a song that means she’s re-writing which gives her writing credits which means she’s co-writing and every artist out there does this same thing! I’m only here to be honest! One more thing have you all taken the time to look at every song she’s ever put out and look at the album credits which consists of every person who had something to do with that specific piece of wrk? No ya’ll to busy assuming that she’s lying abt what she does!! Don’t come for me I know EXACTLY what I’m talking abt that’s how I make my paper. WRITING!!

    @FukkAhater, Right,,,,,dey stay mad. the point is if you write anything you get the credit,,, its not stealing is being smart.. Whitney Houston was the best,,but most of her songs,, if not all,she did not get a writing credit. way less money.
