It’s been a hectic week in the world of pop. With the leaking of Katy Perry’s latest release ‘Roar’ and Lady Gaga’s new song ‘Applause’, both Katycats and Little Monsters were sent into a meltdown! Both pop artists are head to head with their releases, and with both set to make an appearance at the MTV VMA’s, it’s only a matter of time before we see which one comes out on top.


Catchy, inspiring and uplifting, Katy Perry brings back the big guns that she used with anthem ‘Firework’ to create a summer track set to battle with Gaga’s ‘comeback’ single. Using popular emoticons in her lyric video that are regularly used by teens and young adults, it’s clear that Perry is out to sell a happy, fun record – one which people of all ages will find themselves singing “You’re gonna hear me rooooaaar!” I mean, imagine driving home after a hard days work and yelling out the lyrics “I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire, ‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar“. The lyrics are motivating and leave you wanting to climb a mountain – almost Rocky-esque style in the infamous scene when he runs up the stairs!
Take a listen and try to prevent yourself from joining in the chorus’ “oh oh oh oh oh ohh!”

Gaga is back!!! Monsters rejoice! Applause is fast-paced and is definitely the rave song that Gaga hinted at way back in November regarding her latest album ARTPOP (to be released in November this year) with the tweet: “ a special day when you were born, your techno raver little sister is in my uterus she says hello in glowsticks”

Never one to disappoint and always filled with surprises (after releasing the song early), Gaga has penned a dance song laced with lyrics that might escape some people such as ‘One second I’m a Koons, then suddenly the Koons is me!’ (referring to artist Jeff Koons). But despite the poetic and cultural lyrics, Gaga delivers a pumped-up and celebratory track as she asks us to “Give me the thing that I love, put your hands up make ’em touch!”
How could we ever say no?
