  • Hey!

    The beginning is good and the rest sucks. I also feel like she took songs from other artist and out them into one song. Not very good in my opinion.

  • SDresident

    Has an Avril Lavigne / Demi Lovato feel. Sugary pop, but not feelin it after the first few listens…

  • hermes

    Really catchy and fresh. It doesn’t sound like any of the TD songs. I love it.

  • ian

    Love it!
    Katy is gonna slay!

  • cat

    what the heck.. she stole the lumineers “hey ho” … Go listen ..

  • mixtape

    This is amazing

  • sam

    as much as katy is one of the current female leads in the music biz, her songs are really forgettable. they’re not true chart topping songs that stand the test of time and will be heard decades later when i turn 50 or 60 and she isnt alone in this either, its the current generation of “artists” that are being “chosen”. really forgettable songs this past decade, no artists even actually make an effort anymore, except adele (who’s the most legit this decade and beyond) and maybe gaga or beyonce are the exceptions but their personalities are so egotistical because they’re considered the most talented, its sad all around for this industry that musicians actually used to look forward to pursue but now its all rigged, unethical, and unoriginal.

    I’m sure it’ll do well on the charts and get overplayed on the radio. I like her singing voice so I like most of her stuff! She seems to keep her song lyrics relevant to her life and what she’s been through, which I like. I hate hearing a song from an artist and it’s just no connection to anything they’ve experienced in their own life.

  • Tiger

    very catchy, i like it! especially chorus

  • Drew Tuá

    OH MY GOD! I love it <3

  • DreamKey5848

    @cat: Yeah, I agree. :( I love Katy but I don’t love this song, I just liked it.

  • Ernesto


    I like the roar song but it sounds to similiar

  • Seba
  • Rocky

    this song sounds EXACTLY LIKE BRAVE BY SARA BAREILLES. but…why?

  • http://@DiegoSlave4Brit Diego

    It sounds just like “Brave” by Sara Bareilles… Check that song out…

  • SamSam

    The production sounds like M83-Outro and the vocals are Brave by Sara Bareilles. Shame on you Katy,

  • cat

    So the verses are the exact cadence of the lumineers song “ho hey” and the beat is the exact beat sara barrelles “brave”.. weird weird weird weird.. and this song isn’t as good as either

  • Jon

    sounds exactly like sara’s bariella Brave:

  • cat

    the sara barelles beat is undeniable.. but listen to the cadence of this song and tell me it’s not the same as well…

  • Micaela

    I LOVE IT!! It is an awesome song! I love the lyrics and it will be soon be repeating in my head!!!!!

  • Oh Yeah!!!

    Rih you are over! Katy is back!

  • Frank

    THIS IS AMAZING!!! is the introduction of the new album! IT’S GONNA BE ON TOP!!!!

  • guest4114

    well, she sure knows how to do it

  • Me

    Generic and basic as heck!

  • niagirl

    Gurl, you are so “Brave” to copy another persons song.

  • mick

    Sounds like early 2000′s bubblegum pop. Not for me. blah!

  • Allie

    Katy’s music is pretty good….. kind of the same old though..
    Hoping Adam Lambert has his music out soon…
    Could get excited about that for sure. :)

    Hope Katy hypes Adam’s Music for him. the way he does her and others.. it’s time for some return Karma..

  • deidreinthesky

    A bit boring at first listen, but maybe it will grow on me.

  • Leigh

    Yes – very similar to “Brave.”

  • Candace

    The two songs are very similar…

  • Brol


  • JessieA

    It’s good…but a bit boring. She took a leaf out of Grandma Sara Bareilles’ book…it’s like a more interesting version of Brave.

    I think it’s way too bland and sleepy for a lead single, though.

    I tend to like album tracks better than singles anyway, so I’m still looking forward to Prism!

  • barbls

    Music is about the artist singing it, not about the music. Radio will play it a million times and it will be a hit. The music world hypes the same top artists even when the music doesn’t warrant it. I like Katy Perry, the person and her personality, but this song is boring!

  • Mal

    I like Katy Perry and like her songs from Teenage Dream but am not impressed with this song. Sounds like a slowed down rendition of her other songs–not as catchy and doesn’t show real growth as an artist–more of the same–and just not as good. Sorry

  • http://Chavier1991 Javier

    JUST AMAZING ! I loved it ! Katy ROCKS !

  • Roaring Katy

    Katy is a cool and confident artist. She merits her enormous fan base.

  • Mal


    I agree with you–some artists have cornered the market and no matter what they put out it will be played (over and over) until people are forced to believe it merits all of that exposure. I hope the rest of her album has more uniqueness to it because this is just boring, underwhelming pop in my opinion. Expected a lot more.

  • Katy Rocks

    Can’t wait for Prism to drop!

  • me


  • Jordy

    She’s had more number ones from a single album than anyone aside from MJ so saying her songs aren’t chart toppers is hilarious. And this in no way steal Hey Ho. People have said hey in the background of songs for decades. Not really groundbreaking or original from the lumineers.

  • St

    This is the worst song she did in years. Just boring and ordinary. Not catchy at all.

  • Adriana

    Kind of ironic that the people who say she’s ripping off Sara Barilles are calling Katy “basic”. After about 20 comments of the same dismissal, everyone sounds just as “basic”. And BTW, this song sounds similar, but not as blatant as Born This Way ripped off Express Yourself.

  • Tara

    Her real talent is her tits, not writing or singing really.

  • Elaine

    This song is so generic and bland, nothing special or unique about it. I’m looking forward to Avicii and Adam Lambert’s new music. That should be innovative and exciting!

  • Matt Valdez

    Meh… it’s cute, but I’ve heard better from Katy.
