Lakeshore Records announces today the release of the U.S. theme song to the fifth season of the blockbuster anime series Beyblade Burst Surge. An exuberantly funky track titled “We Got The Spin,” produced and written by Konrad OldMoney with lyrics and vocals by Johnny Gr4ves (Zeboria Peters), the song matches the exhilarating energy of the show. See listening links and more below.
Says Konrad: “We Got The Spin” was just as fun as the song sounds! I happen to be a huge anime fan and Beyblade is iconic to me, so getting to make a bouncy Hip Hop record for the Season 5 Theme Song was a dream come true!”
Says Zeboria: “I grew up playing Beyblade, so it really feels like I’m passing the torch to my nephew and his generation. It’s been an honour!”
“We Got The Spin (feat. Johnny Gr4ves) [Beyblade Burst Surge Opening Theme Song]” is out now on all major digital music services. BEYBLADE BURST SURGE will air in the U.S. on Disney XD beginning February 20 at 8 AM EST.
