posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Lakeshore Records began streaming the full music video on Thursday for "Rise," Jonathan Young's English opening theme song for the Beyblade Burst Rise (Beyblade Burst GT) anime. The video marks the release of the song as a Spotify digital exclusive on Thursday.
The song, written by Steven Raymond Bush, will debut through other services on Friday. Young commented on the song:
The Beyblade franchise has left such a large cultural footprint that saying "Let it Rip" to any guy in the Millennial/Gen-Z age group will almost always bring back fond memories. It's pretty wild that after a decade of growing up during Beyblade's RISE (ha.) that I could leave a footprint on the franchise with my voice as well. Relatively speaking, I'm still a new kid on the scene so it's surreal hearing my voice on television, and I'm honored and glad that Beyblade is reaching out to a new generation of musicians like me to spearhead their iconic TV theme songs.
The English dub of the anime premiered on Disney XD in the United States on February 8. Canadian television channel Teletoon will also air the anime at a later date. Corus Entertainment licensed the series from ADK Emotions NY (formerly Sunrights).
Global licensing magazine Total Licensing describes the series:
Legendary Blader Valt Aoi has been training the next generation of elite Bladers at Spain's BC Sol. One day, rookie Bladers Dante Koryu and Delta Zakuro witness Valt unleashing his newly-evolved Gamma Bey, Sword Valtryek. To their surprise, Valtryek radiates a golden light as it rockets around the stadium. Inspired by the limitless possibilities of this “Hyper-Flux” state, both Dante and Delta seek the same bond with their Beys.
Dante and his partner, Ace Dragon, set off for Japan, the birthplace of Beyblade. But the path to glory won't be easy; plenty of tough competitors and Gamma Beys stand in their way, among them some of the best to ever let it rip. Dante soon realizes he'll have to do whatever it takes to deepen his bond with Dragon.
Do Dante and Dragon have what it takes to overcome these challenges? And will they ever achieve Hyper-Flux? Here begins the story of Dante and Dragon's rise to the peak of the Blading world.
