Last night Katy Perry debuted her newest single, “Part of Me” at the 2012 Grammys show. The song is well on its way to becoming another number one hit for the hit lister that is Perry. Despite many, including myself, believing that the track is about Katy’s ex Russell Brand, it is actually an older song. It was a song that was recorded during the recording sessions for the “Teenage Dream” album. The song didn’t make the original cut, but it is going to be n the re-released version “Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection” which is due out March 27.
“Part of Me” is a great song about a break-up and not letting it get the best of you. Even though the song wasn’t originally about Russell Brand, Katy has added some lines including, “keep your diamond ring”, that have retooled the song towards Russell. The song was being played on Clear Channel Radio stations on the hour, every hour February 13. The song should be able to hit number one with or without riding the Katy-Russell divorce marketing. It is a great, catchy song that I have been repeating all day. You can see the awesomely designed lyric video below. Hopefully, we can get a music video soon.
