The New Orleans Saints need a new anthem and city native 5 Star Hero could be the answer to replace an old, tired tune in the Superdome.

Let’s be honest, folks. It’s time to replace the Ying Yang Twins’ “Stand Up” anthem every time the Saints get ready to score or are at least threatening in the red zone. Besides, Ying Yang Twins are from Atlanta, right? Hmmm …

WDD caught up with New Orleans’ own 5 Star Hero, who has made waves recently with his latest entry, a rally anthem for the Saints.

Robert Gagnier: When did you first release the Saints anthem song?

5 Star Hero: It was initially released last season, but my Mardi gra song was hot, and the Saints anthem kind of went the way the fans felt at the time toward the team, which was iffy at best. So when the Saints went on to go 7-9 once again, it affected the song.

RG: What inspired you to make the Saints Anthem Song?

5SH: Well, my first anthem piece that I did for the Saints was back in 2013, and it happened on accident. I was in the studio going through some beats playing around on the microphone and things kind of went from there.

RG: It’s obvious that the Saints organization and all others across the league pay their players and coaches very well, up to millions of dollars per season. What are your thoughts about trying to get this piece to play in the Mercedes-Benz Super Dome either before, during, or after a contest?

5SH: Well, anytime a song comes along that can help to market the product of football either on or off the field, there is value to that. If my anthem is played, the crowd will feed from that, and in turn the players may feed off the energy from the fans. If you have a good song that’s bumping, people feel that, it turns into energy, and its a win-win for all involved.

RG: You have put your Saints Anthem in various forms in social media, with one of the most entertaining showing Saints Super fan Jarius Robertson jamming to your anthem as seen below:

Now how are you connected to Jarius, also known locally as little JJ? Well my cousin knows JJ’s dad and was doing some things with kids through his foundation as well. He has known JJ for some time, and I met him through a blood drive that JJ had a few weeks ago.

We got to hang out a bit there, and his dad was down with me being able to show him on the vid rocking to my Saint anthem. And that’s where we are at.

Below is another vid put out by 5 Star, this one showing a Wall Mart employee jamming to his cut:

RG: What kind of deal are you looking to strike with the Saints?

5SH: I am open and flexible, but ideally looking for a corporate sponsorship. 5 Star Hero is not only my name as an artist, it is also my company and brand name. I think my song as what it takes to get people up and moving before, during, and after the game.

RG: Hey man, WDD wish the best of luck. Hopefully we’ll be hearing your music in and around the Dome this coming season!

5SH: Thank you!
