Katy Perry dropped her new single “Never Really Over,” and her fans can’t get enough.
The “Chained to the Rhythm” hitmaker also shared the official music video for the song, which has been watched over 800,000 times within four hours of uploading.
“I worked on this song when I was on tour, and I don’t really do that. It’s produced by Zedd and I brought him the song and said wow it sounds amazing. Specifically, the lyrics in the second verse which I love is—I guess I should try to go to therapy to try to get you out of my brain, I can’t even go on the internet, without even checking your name,” Spin reports Perry talking about the song.
Earlier this year, she released a single with Zedd which she featured on. Titled “365,” the track has already racked up over 77.3 million streams on Spotify alone. The song peaked at No. 36 in the U.K. and No. 86 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
Last month, she jumped on the remix of Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma.”
Katy’s latest release, “Never Really Over” seems to be a new era for the star, and her fans that she calls “Katy Kats” are very impressed with what might be the lead single for her fifth studio album.
As always, they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
