  • Lyrics
  • This swooping arena-pop ballad finds Aguilera singing about overcoming the odds and battling it out to the bitter end. She penned the song with Ryan Tedder and Brent Kutzle of OneRepublic, along with Mikky Ekko (Rihanna's "Stay"). The song was written for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack, and we hear the songstress channeling the movie's heroine Katniss Everdeen as she sings, "Whatever happens here… we remain." Aguilera explained to her fans in a tweet: "Love is the underlying message of @TheHungerGames. 'We Remain' is special new song, its message to my fans & how I connect w/ the movie, alike."
