‘Roar’ is the first single from Katy Perry’s upcoming fourth studio album Prism, and the star is back with a bang. ‘Roar’ is a track more in lieu with her second album One Of The Boys as opposed to the third record Teenage Dream. It shows her stepping away from the usual candy-coated pop of Teenage Dream, and instead the track focuses more on her vocals. It’s just as catchy as usual, but the lack of synth-beats makes it feel far more stripped down, putting more emphasis on the lyrics. With empowering lyrics (‘I got the eye of the tiger, the fire, dancing through the fire, cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar’) it’s a truly anthemic offering from Miss Perry.
The ‘Roar’ release date was pushed forward to Sunday the 1st of September, and now a day later (Monday the 2nd) it is already the top of the iTunes chart, so could this be another UK number one for Katy? We’ll see on Sunday!
