This song is like my “outro theme” or anthem for the end of my 2017…I made some big choices without certain safety nets in places because it was a gut/faith move I felt deep in my soul that it was the right thing to do and that I would be ok as long as I walked in faith. I heard this song a couple days after my plans set in motion and I’ve been playing it on loop ever since. It’s a powerful song, gorgeous male voices, powerful percussion and chanting war cries that dare to run towards the future I want with arms outstretched, no turning back. And I’m pumped.
This is becoming a long time favorite of mine. Its one of those few songs were the drop is actually satisfying to me and getting to it doesn’t slay me from being too long. I love the drop at 2:30. All the notes and elements work just right for me. Even as a writer, its given me some great inspiration for several different scenes and how they play. That’s always fantastic!
I feel like the only person who flipping loved the new sound Katy Perry is cranking out. This sound here is my JAM. It checks off all the right boxes for me between the minor key and dark and rhythmic beat. While I can do without the rapping, it’s not bad either. But dang, I love Katy’s new sound. I also like the sensual side to this song, while she highlights the reality that women are often viewed as a five-course meal for the male appetite. I love it, once I start listening I can’t stop. It repeats WAY too easily. ❤
