Carrie Underwood Premieres 'The Champion' Featuring Ludacris

(Radio.com) Carrie Underwood has released her highly anticipated new single "The Champion," which features Ludacris. The song was written for the Super Bowl, and Underwood tested it out on her husband and former professional hockey player Mike Fisher.

"My husband loved it," Underwood told Variety. "He would listen to it before playoff games. He was like 'I want everyone to hear it!' and I had to tell him, 'You can't do that. You can't play it in the locker room. I'm sorry.' But that was a good indicator that we were on the right track."

"I am invincible, unbreakable," Carrie sings on the hook. "Unstoppable, unshakeable, they knock me down, I get up again, I am the champion." Luda spells out the word champion in his verse, listing the attributes it takes to become one "The C is for the courage I possess through the trauma," he raps "H is for the hurt but it's all for the honor." Check out the new sports anthem here.

Seal Clarifies His Oprah And Harvey Weinstein Social Media Meme

(Radio.com) Seal has something to say. The "Kiss From a Rose" singer has come out to clarify the inspiration behind a controversial social media post featuring a meme of Oprah Winfrey photographed with disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

"Let me start by saying that I have an enormous amount of respect for everything that Oprah has achieved and contributed in her life," Seal says in a Facebook video. "What I reposted was not an attack on Oprah at all. She just happened to be the person photographed with the pig in the picture. No, what I reposted was commentary on the hypocritical and double-standard nature and behavior of Hollywood."

Seal goes on to stress that sexual abusers simply losing jobs is not justice, and that the punishment would be much harsher if the abusers "looked like me." Read more here.

Marshmello Releases Lil Peep Collaboration 'Spotlight'

(Radio.com) Marshmello has released a new track called "Spotlight," a collaboration with the late-MC Lil Peep, who died from an overdose of Fentanyl on November 15, 2017.

The melancholy track combines melodic vocals with smooth rapping and the lyrics address a painful breakup: "Loving you is like a fairytale/ I just can't pick up the phone again/ This time I'll be on my own my friend/ One more time I'm all alone again."

The two artists worked together on the song just a few weeks before the up-and-coming 21-year-old rapper died. At first, Marshmello considered scrapping the track, but Lil Peep's mother asked him if he would release it as a tribute to her son.

'Peep brought an excitement to music that was unparalleled to anybody I've ever met," Marshmello said in a statement. "We started an idea together that unfortunately, we were never able to officially finish together. When I listen to this track now I get chills wishing he could hear it. This record is dedicated to Peep's mother, family, friends and his fans. Gus will live forever through his music and that is something we should all be extremely thankful for."
