It leaked over the weekend so we absolutely have to talk about the brilliant new debut song from Katy Perry, entitled ‘Roar’. ‘Roar’ is an absolute beast of a tune – appropriate given the amount of tiger imagery – and while it’s not a big EDM dancefloor hit, it’s definitely full of hooks and earworms that cement Perry’s position as a princess of the radiowaves.
The song is a midtempo, more mature jaunt into the ‘putting yourself back together’ sort of song and while some might consider it a rip-off of global hit ‘Firework’, it’s more solid and composed and sincere than that tune. Her vocals are pretty on-point too and that final chorus is truly fantastic. A new age of Katy Perry is amongst us and we’re very excited to see what emerges from new album ‘Prism’.
