Our homegirl Yuna is on a roll! She is one of the five artists who have collaborated on the Rio 2016 Olympic Games theme song. Expect to hear Yuna's vocals alongside those of Grammy-winner Lenny Kravitz, Nneka, Diogo Noguiera and Corinne Bailey Rae. However, there's no word as to whether our former cover girl will be performing it at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.

The theme song, called The Fire, was originally performed by The Roots and John Legend. The track is featured on campaign videos for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. "I am so honoured to be a part of their campaign," Yuna said on Facebook. "It was so much fun working with everyone on this song."

We've got our fingers crossed for her to perform at the Olympics! In the meantime, listen to a snippet of the song in the campaign video below.
