Hear the Detective Pikachu theme song ‘Carry On’ by Rita Ora now

Kygo Rita Ora Carry On - Pokémon Detective Pikachu theme song

The theme song for Pokémon: Detective Pikachu has dropped. The track is “Carry On,” by British singer Rita Ora and Norwegian producer Kygo, and you can check out the music video below. It’s a pretty chill and ethereal pop song. The video has movie footage interwoven throughout, including some epic fight snippets toward the end.

I can talk about K-pop all day, but in my whole life, I’ve never been up to date on American pop music. All I know about Rita Ora is that she was the host of Boy Band on ABC, and I didn’t know who Kygo was until a Google search a few minutes ago. At any rate, they seem to make a good pairing! Let us know what you think of the song and the video.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu releases on May 10, which is inching closer all the time.
