Pop superstar and former Maxim cover girl Katy Perry may have kept herself deep underground since her last single, "This Is How We Do," dropped two years ago, but that doesn't mean we've forgotten about the bombshell who introduced us to Left Shark.

It seems she's been quite busy, as the 31-year old revealed a brand electronically-influenced track to the world, inspired by the heroics of Olympic athletes

Appropriately titled "Rise," Katy said in a statement, "I can’t think of a better example than the Olympic athletes, as they gather in Rio with their strength and fearlessness, to remind us how we ALL can come together, with the resolve to be the best we can be. I hope this song can inspire us to heal, unite, and rise together.”

Katy's alleged response was a veritable mic drop heard 'round the world:
