If you saw The Great Gatsby this weekend, then you likely caught a trailer for upcoming animated flick Epic. And among the colorful all-star cast of both actors (Amanda Seyfried, Colin Farrell, Christoph Waltz) and musicians (Pitbull, Steven Tyler) is a woman who fits both bills on occasion: Beyonce Knowles.

In addition to lending her voice to the character of Queen (duh) Tara in the feature, Bey also co-wrote the song “Rise Up” with go-to Aussie hit-maker Sia for the soundtrack. Naturally some King B fan recorded a short snippet of the number while in a movie theater and uploaded it to YouTube for the whole Hive to enjoy.

So if your idea of fun is getting worked up over yet another incomplete Beyonce song, then have at it below, stans!

Beyonce — “Rise Up” (snippet)

From what we can hear, the potential for “Rise Up” to be a hit is certainly there. After all, the mid-tempo number boasts inspirational lyrics, an uplifting chorus and Beyonce harmonizing with herself.

And, hey — as an added bonus, the Epic soundtrack has a release date of May 28. Yes, an actual release date. Consider that a novelty in the current state of all things Beyonce.
