Get ready to ROAR! Katy Perry’s new single, co-written with Bonnie McKee, comes from her upcoming third studio album “Prism“ (out October 22). It was scheduled to drop Monday, but according to Billboard, the song leaked online early this morning. Look for it on iTunes soon and expect to hear it played on the radio A LOT next week because KatyCats, she’s done it again. I love it. I was already dancing in my seat by the time the second verse rolled around. The chorus is catchy as hell and I can’t wait to belt it out in my car:
“I got the eye of the tiger, the fire, dancing through the fire / ’cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me ROAR / louder, louder than a lion / ’cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me ROAR / oh oh oh oh oh oh / you’re gonna hear me roar.”
With the overall message of the teaser videos (four total over the last week), it looks like Katy’s trying to shed her bubblegum image and go full self-empowerment with her new sound. I can’t wait to hear Prism in its entirety.
Give it a listen here and see what you think! Do you love it? Hate it?
