30 May 2019

Welcome to the rap game?

Arnold Schwarzenegger has released a rap song celebrating his rise from bodybuilder to movie star. The Terminator star, 71, has recorded the inspiring duet, titled Pump It Up - The Motivation Song, with Austrian singer Andreas Gabalier.

After Andreas sings about how Arnie is a "living legend" the action superstar raps: "Hey I'm Arnold Schwarzenegger and listen carefully. Dig deep down and ask yourself, who do you want to be. Not what, but who. If you believe success will come. Work like hell, trust yourself and all your dreams come true."

The song talks about the rise from his early days pumping iron at Venice Beach's Gold's Gym, becoming Mr. Universe, movie stardom, and becoming Governor of California, and also includes some of his famous catchphrases like "I'll be back".

"Break some rules, knock the wall, don't be afraid to fail. You have to think outside the box, I say no pain no gain. I don't want to hear it can't be done, always give something back," he tells fans in the lyrics, before adding: "My name is Arnold Schwarzenegger and I'll be back." Very cool. 

Andreas is a popular modern folk musician in Arnold's homeland of Austria, where he has had five number one albums.
