The inevitable has just happened – and I was sorta expecting this anyway!
Katy Perry’s ‘Roar‘ – the feverishly anticipated first single from her upcoming third album ‘Prism‘ (October 22) has leaked on the internet two days earlier than her scheduled première date of August 12th.
Following the leak, the song has been serviced to radio stations and will possibly be released digitally later tonight or tomorrow.
Produced by Dr Luke and co-written by Bonnie McKee, ‘Roar‘ isn’t exactly a major sonic departure from what she has had to offer in the past. Irrespective, the song is a solid slice of pop excellence with an utterly massive and uplifting chorus.
Expect the single to roar in the upper reaches of the chart within a week or so, with the possibility of becoming her 8th # 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100.
