Katy Perry's new song, Part of Me, hits iTunes today (Katy-cats rejoice!). Here are our thoughts on her new single:
Gregory: I'm a bit tired of Katy's candy-coated iteration, but I love this song. It's beautiful and emotional, yet strong and empowering. Most importantly, it's oh so catchy! Here's my breakdown: okay bridge, good verses, GREAT chorus. I just love it.
Minna: I'm not emotionally prepared for the Complete Confection radio onslaught. I think the Katy-character should take a break & honor her first divorce in other ways than an illustrious chart-topper. That aside, Part of Me is not terrible. Its message is positivity. The chorus is catchy & endearing. But the line "you're never gonna break my soul" has me wishing Perry would write more & collaborate less. Also, Dr. Luke, we're sick of the obligatory guitar riff. It's not fun anymore. It's distressing.
