Katy Perry – Prism Album Preview

“Roar”
-You have all heard this one already and all of us at JustJared.com love it! Go watch the just released music video if you haven’t seen it yet.

“Legendary Lovers”
-A slow, groovy song.
-Sample lyrics: “Take me down to the river/ Underneath the ____/ Say my name like a scripture/ Keep my heart beating like a drum/ Legendary lovers, legendary lovers, legendary lovers”
-There’s a breakdown in the song that makes you want to belly dance. There’s a howl toward the end.. “Ah-who-o-o-o!”

“Birthday”
-Katy shared that it’s an upbeat “song that Mariah Carey would have put on her first record.”
-Sample lyrics: “I’ll give you a taste/ Make you lick your body every day/ Give you something to satisfy… Give you something good to celebrate/ I know you like it sweet/ Make it like your birthday everyday.”
-The breakdown: “Let me get you in your birthday suit.”
-Song ends with a whisper, “happy birthday”

“Walking On Air”
-Recorded in Stockholm, produced by Klas Åhlund.
-She was inspired by a “Central Park Day” where she was eating hot dogs with a friend and watching roller skaters perform to deep house music.
-Very 90′s dance divas a la CeCe Peniston and Crystal Waters.
-Sample lyrics: “Just when I think I can’t take anymore/ We go deeper and hotter than ever before/ We go higher and higher, I feel like I’m already there/ I’m walking on air tonight”
-Check out Just Jared’s previous post to listen to a preview!

“Unconditionally”
-Katy‘s fave song on the record. She shared that she’s the “most proud to have written” the mid-tempo song. Seems like the song written most about John Mayer.
-Sample lyrics: “Did I almost sin… all your insecurities…” Chorus: “Unconditional, unconditionally/ I will love you unconditionally. There is no fear now… I love you conditionally.”

“Dark Horse” feat Juicy J
-The urban song has Juicy rapping “She’s a beast” of Katy.
Sample lyrics: “So you wanna play with magic/ Boy you should know what you’re falling for/ Baby do you dare to do this/ Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse.. Are you ready for, ready for/ Perfect storm, perfect storm/ Cuz once you’re mine, once you’re mine”
-Listen to a preview of this song now!

“This Is How We Do”
-Club banger written in Stockholm and Just Jared‘s personal favorite!
-Sample lyrics: “Chanel this, Chanel that, hell yeah… Street stuntin’ ya we do it like that/ Yeah this is how we do.. Bring the beat back”

“International Smile”
-Upbeat, dancey song written for her DJ BFF Mia Moretti. Katy shared, “She travels all around the world. She’s my muse. Don’t tell my other friends.”
-Sample lyrics: “That girl’s a trip, one way ticket/ Takes you miles high, cause she’s got that one international smile.”

“Ghost”
-Mid-tempo song written in Santa Barbara.
-Sample lyrics: “Every gift, every letter, every promise, there forever… now you’re just a ghost.. vanish like a vapor… now I see clearly… my vision’s 20/20… So rest in peace, see you on the other side.”

“Love Me”
-Made in Stockholm and produced by Bloodshy. Katy has wanted to work with him every since Britney Spears‘ “Toxic” (One of Just Jared’s favorite songs!).
-”All the lyrics [to "Love Me"] are important to me,” she shared.
-Sample lyrics: “I love myself in fear of losing you… I lost my own identity”… Love me, no more second guessing/ There’s no more questioning/ I’ll be the one to find who I love/ I can see you have feelings… I’m gonna love”

“Double Rainbow”
-Wrote this melodic mid-tempo song with Greg Kurstin and Sia.
-Sample lyrics: “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure/ The two of us together… So if it’s up to me, I’m gonna keep you forever… Brighter than the Northern Lights… Like a double rainbow in the sky… double rainbow time flies”

“By The Grace Of God”
-This ballad closes out the regular record.
-Sample lyrics: “Lay on the bathroom floor/ Couldn’t take it anymore… By the grace of God/ I looked in the mirror and decided to stay/ Wasn’t gonna let love take me out… I thank my sister for keeping my head above the water… Every morning, I finally see myself again… Universe calling my bluff”

    ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!!!!!! Says:

    YES!!!! ASIANS REALLY CAN READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!
    They can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!
    .
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    .
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.
    .
    PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

    Yawn….

    She’s a 3rd rate singer at best. Her voice is strong but so flat and lacks emotion. She’s hot though, and everyone under 13 seems to love her.

    She’s average at best when it comes to singing but I feel for her after what that monkey face Russell did.

    Can you spell D-E-S-P-E-R-A-T-E? She’ll be at Avril Lavigne status in two years and on Dancing with the ex-Stars in five.
