The politician released “The Official Hillary 2016 Playlist” to Spotify on Monday, with the caption: “Rock out, Hillary 2016 style, with the official campaign playlist.” The 14-song mix includes empowering tracks like Katy Perry’s “Roar,” Ariana Grande’s “Break Free” and Sara Bareilles’ “Brave,” along with a surprising amount of American Authors songs.
Last year, Perry offered to write Clinton a campaign song. “I told @hillaryclinton that I would write her a ‘theme’ song if she needs it…” Perry wrote on Twitter after posting a photo of herself and the presidential candidate (who had then not yet declared her intentions to run for office).
Clinton’s account replied by suggesting Perry already had. “Keep letting us hear you Roar,” she wrote.
.@katyperry Well that’s not a Hard Choice. You already did! Keep letting us hear you Roar.
