Justin Timberlake is not the only talented musician headed to Super Bowl LII. Carrie Underwood and Ludacris are teaming up for a Super Bowl song titled ‘The Champion.’
As football fans are aware, Underwood has been the voice of NBC's Sunday Night Football for the last five years. It has been confirmed that she will also be the voice when the network hosts Super Bowl LII in a few weeks.
However, unlike the regular season when Underwood sings the opening all by herself, this time one of her friends will help her out. Rapper Ludacris, who also helped her co-write the song, will join Underwood for the video of ‘The Champion’.
The duo won’t be at the stadium performing their new song. Instead, the video will be the opening segment to the big game. Both the American Idol alum and the Fate of The Furious star sing in the video. He raps more than sings but either way the song is killer.
Underwood recently revealed that she suffered a terrible fall outside her home last November. The singer had to have over 40 stitches in her face. However, fans won’t be able to see any remnants from the accident because the video was filmed last year.
Fans won’t have to wait until February 4th to hear 'The Champion' - it dropped online today. Not long after the song was released, Underwood put out a statement about the song.

"When we were writing 'The Champion,' our main focus was to celebrate athletes at the top of their game, but we also wanted the song to resonate with people in their everyday lives. 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!" she said.
Super Bowl LII will have one awesome opening of the game. Carrie Underwood and Ludacris will debut a video for their new song The Champion. Watching the new opening is just another reason to tune into the big game Sunday February 4th on NBC at 6:30PM EST.
