Carrie Underwood and Ludacris are teaming up to record a song for the Super Bowl.

Ludacris' contribution to "The Champion" starts at 2:10 in the track, when he comes in with a rap break that adds a very different flavor to Underwood's song before handing it back to her to wrap up with another powerful chorus.

The three-minute, 37 second tune, written by Underwood and Ludacris with Brett James and Chris DeStefano, earns its high-profile slot with one of the heaviest, and catchiest, tracks of the "All-American Girl" singer's career. "We hope the lyrics will inspire people to push themselves beyond their limits to conquer anything they are trying to accomplish or overcome".

Along with the track, Carrie has released a lyric video for the song, which will also be heard as part of NBC's Winter Olympics coverage.

In an interview past year with Variety, it was revealed that Underwood wrote the song at the urging of Sunday Night Football's executive producer, Fred Gaudelli.

Listen to "The Champion" below! "Carrie presented first. After she spoke, we looked at each other and said, 'That's the one, '" recalls Fred Gaudelli, executive producer of Sunday Night Football and NBC's Super Bowl LII coverage. "We are excited to highlight "The Champion" in two events on the global stage in February".
