Do you ever feel like a plastic bag drifting through the wind? No? Well, how about a parachute? If you’re nodding furiously at your laptop right now, then Katy Perry’s “Rise” music video is the video for you, because Perry is stranded in the desert and trailed by a giant pink parachute. No matter how hard she tries, she ends up dangling off a cliff, or facing a downpour, until finally, she rises and floats away. Godspeed, Katy!
Perry initially released “Rise” for the 2016 Rio Olympics, and it was her first new single in two years. She also sang a version of the song at the Democratic National Convention, where she changed the lyrics just for Hillary: “Don’t be surprised; she will still rise.”
