It's catchy, I use it. It's defo a bop. I preferred Roar so far though.
Roar was a bit too cheesy for me. I don't think Katy will ever top the Teenage Dream era as good as stuff like Roar, Dark Horse and this new single are. Literally, every single off of Teenage Dream was a masterclass in pop perfection.
Absolutely. The Teenage Dream singles were pop perfection. Some were silly/fun pop like California Gurls and Last Friday Night; some were a bit more serious like Teenage Dream (timeless anthem), Firework (with a message), and The One That Got Away; ET was pretty left-field for KP, etc. Also, it was the rare perfect timing with all of the singles being massive hits, radio ate them up. On top of that
, every music video was an event that actually delivered. All the while every song, for better or worse, was so completely Katy Perry.
I have to say about her career post-Teenage Dream: I'm glad she didn't try to recreate that era. I have no idea how Chained To The Rhythm will fare chart wise, but I like this direction a lot. Definitely interested in hearing what the new album holds.
Oh and lastly LOL, I never liked Roar and still don't. It was too cheesy for even Katy Perry, and boy that's saying something. It actually turned me off of Prism initially.
