Katy came off one of the radio-friendliest albums in history, but she’s supposedly going in a new direction. Even if the song isn’t a radio hit, I’m excited to hear what she comes up with. And in a turn of events, it seems Gaga is going away from the non-radio friendly direction of her last album and getting back into the EDM game. It could be pretty interesting.August 2, 2013 at 10:54 am #371295
^Also, Britney is releasing this period as well, and her single might drop in that same week. These boards are gonna light up!August 2, 2013 at 11:38 am #371296This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 9, 2013 at 10:37 am #371297
Katy is supposedly going “darker” with her new era, but from the snipppet I heard on Vevo “Roar” sounds pretty safe and radio friendly. I figured she wouldn’t actually be going “dark.” I don’t even think she would know how to create “dark music.” All three videos she’s released in the past week or so still have the typical Katy Perry feel: fun, light, and lacking no real depth. Sorry, just had to say it.August 10, 2013 at 10:10 am #371299
Why does it sound/remind me of Sara Barielles’ Brave?August 10, 2013 at 10:21 am #371300

It sounds extremely similar to “Brave” actually. I’ve already seen a bunch of people say that on a few blogs. But of course no one is actually going to make a big deal of this though, since Katy is typically loved by the general public, whereas GaGa was destroyed when “Born This Way” sounded similar to “Express Yourself.” But that’s the general public for ya.August 10, 2013 at 12:39 pm #371301
Hmm… I kinda like it. Generic as heck, but it’s catchy. It’ll do. LOLAugust 10, 2013 at 2:00 pm #371302
I think it’s really catchy. It has been stuck in my head all day and it will probably be a hit. However, I will say that it does sound a lot like “Brave” in the beginning and the song kind of is one big cliche. I also don’t understand how this song is supposed to be any darker than Katy’s previous material.August 10, 2013 at 2:15 pm #371304This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 10, 2013 at 3:00 pm #371305This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 11, 2013 at 3:35 pm #371306
This is definitely incredibly catchy, but only because of the chorus. The rest is kind of bland? I don’t know if this impressed me as much as I was hoping it to. I was hoping she’d go REALLY dark.August 11, 2013 at 5:47 pm #371307

I agree. It also bothers me that it sounds almost identical to “Brave” by Sarah Bareilles. Someone already mashed the two songs together and it was quite amazing to hear how similar they really are. Quite disappointing.
