Finally, some new shizzle from Katy Perry, the one hit wonder who wasn’t.
It’s called ‘California Gurls’. If we say the ‘u’ in ‘gurls’ is meant to have the same effect the ‘$’ has in ‘Ke$ha’ then you’ll know what to expect from this song. In fact it’s written and produced by Max Martin and Dr. Luke, the masterminds behind ‘I Kissed a Girl’ and ‘Hot n Cold’, as well as ‘My Life Would Suck Without You’ and many other epic pop hits. It’s a great chilled out summer tune, but unfortunately, doesn’t really live up to the epic pop-ness of ‘I Kissed A Girl’ and ‘Hot n Cold’.
Apparently, it’s about representing Caliornia girls (or gurls), and is some sort of response to Jay-Z’s ‘Empire State of Mind’. Perry said in an interview:
“It’s so great that ‘Empire State of Mind’ is huge and that everyone has the New York song, but what the f**k? What about LA? What about California?. It’s been a minute since we had a California song and especially from a girl’s perspective”
Oh, and it features Snoop Dogg too.
Anyways, here it is, let us know what you think…
