Last night on the Grammy stage, a very blue haired and blue dressed Katy Perry unveiled her new single ‘Part Of Me‘, which serves as the first single from the re-issue of her ‘Teenage Dream‘ album, called ‘Teenage Dream : The Complete Confection‘, out on March 27th. That’s right guys, SHE JUST WON’T STOP RELEASING NEW SINGLES FROM THE DAMN ALBUM.
Thankfully though, the RIAA will not include the new singles from the re-release as a part of the old, which means Katy Perry will not break Michael Jackson’s record of five # 1’s from a single album (Bad), nor will she break Janet Jackson’s record of seven consecutive top 5 singles from one album (Rhythm Nation 1814). Which in my opinion is royally justified. As much as I’m happy for Katy’s success, discounting singles and remixing them at the last moment to achieve that # 1 single is just #reductive.
As far as the Bonnie McKee (‘Hold It Against Me‘, ‘Teenage Dream‘)penned single is concerned, it’s nothing too different from everything that Katy’s already done. It sounds good, and it’s catchy. And that’s about it. Listen to it here :
