Katy Perry’s new tune gives you a little bit of everything: sass, energy and a ton of growling. Despite being leaked prior to its scheduled release date, the very first single from the teenage dream’s forthcoming record, Prism, will get fans excited for the new direction the singer is taking.
Look out Rihanna, because Katy Perry is back in full throttle mode!
Perry’s been out of the game for a much-needed year or so, seeing as her album Teenage Dream was glorified and played on radio stations everywhere for nearly two years, and even now since its release in 2010. As far as I know, there hasn’t been another artist able to successfully stretch the lifespan of their album that long since Nelly Furtado with his single, Loose.
It is clear, nonetheless, while also enjoying the luxuries thanks to the record’s success, Perry has been stirring up something extra special for her fans in the studio. Her latest soon-to-be hit, “Roar,” is exactly the distraction we need for the approaching school year. The tune is vibrant, spirited and an overall transition from her disco-pop ditties “Hot N’ Cold” and “Teenage Dream.”
After the first minute or so of listening to the record, I immediately became attached, perhaps because it reminded me so much of Sara Bareilles’ “Brave.” Although I don’t appreciate Perry’s inability to hold a high note for more than a split second, the song is undeniably dance-worthy (and I’m always down for dancin’). With how irresistibly catchy the tune is, I predict a whole ‘lotta radio-play and YouTube covers to come.
Think “Roar” is good enough to put Perry’s reign back in motion?Katy Perry, leaks, prism, roar
