The first single off Katy Perry's upcoming album, Prism, leaked online Saturday. "Roar" is expected to officially drop on Monday (Aug. 12).
While the jury will likely be debating for a while about the new cut, it's clear the pop star is going bolder this round. Although a more mid-tempo cut, the chorus certainly has bite. “I’ve got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire ’cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar. Louder, louder than a lion, ’cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar.”
It's been an interesting weekend for Perry. As we previously reported, her golden promo truck was hit by a drunk driver on Friday. (Now it makes sense why the singer on Friday called her shiny semi "a champion," responding to the incident. She's got lyrics on her mind.)
Listen to the track below (expect these to appear/disappear throughout the weekend):
