Katy Perry & Zedd’s “365” Sounds Like A Massive Hit!

0

The wait is over! Rumors have been swirling about Katy Perry and Zedd’s pop-saving collaboration for months now. It all started when the “Happy Now” hitmaker hopped on WITNESS: The Tour in late 2018. However, those rumors picked up speed last month after the duo registered a track called “365” with Universal Music Publishing Group. Since then, anticipation has been sky-high to hear what they cooked up in the studio. Today (February 14), it is finally out! And it sounds like a potentially massive hit. Boasting an addictive production and sugary sweet lyrics, the single is perfectly tailored for a Valentine’s Day release.

“Waking up next to you in the middle of the week. Never needed anyone to send me off to sleep. And I know I said go slow, but I can’t hold back no more,” Katy sings. She falls even deeper in love on the chorus. “Are you gonna be the one that’s on my mind? 365, all the time? I want you to be the one to stay. You give me the night and day.” That sentiment takes on a different connotation in the accompanying video, which plays with concepts of love and obsession. In the Warren Fu-directed release, the “Bon Appetit” diva is an android who develops feelings for the very-human Zedd. There are some twists and turns, all of which build up to a heartbreaking ending. Basically, it is essential viewing.

Zedd opened up how the song came about in a press release. “Katy and I have known each other for a while now and while on tour together in Australia last summer, we started working on some music,” he explained. “After we got off tour and with our musical value systems even more aligned we continued working together and that’s when ‘365’ started to take shape. As it all came together, we knew we had something special.” Katy echoed his message. “I was really excited for Zedd to join my WITNESS: The Tour last year, and in our down time, we started vibing on music, which led to this special song.” Check it out below!

Cardi B Reunites With Bruno Mars On New Single “Please Me”

0

It has been a wild week for Cardi B. The Rap Empress kicked things off on an incredible high after making history at the Grammys. During the show, she delivered a suitably eye-popping rendition of current single “Money” and served a look on the red carpet. However, her night got even better when she picked up the Grammy for Best Rap Album. The accomplishment makes her the first female rapper to win the category as a solo artist. However, shortly after delivering her (iconic) acceptance speech, people began complaining that she didn’t deserve the honor. After defending herself on Instagram, the 26-year-old disabled her account for a while to escape the hate.

However, she didn’t let the naysayers keep her down for long. Instead, she ended her “retirement” early to announce a new collaboration with fellow Grammy winner Bruno Mars. The duo linked up on last year’s retro “Finesse (Remix),” which hit the number 3 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. And it seems safe to assume that they have another massive hit on their hands with their latest – “Please Me.” Boasting production from Bruno and The Stereotypes, it’s a sensual bop. The “That’s What I Like” crooner shows off his velvety vocals on the seductive chorus. “Please me, baby. Turn around and just tease me, baby,” he pleads. Meanwhile, Cardi’s verses are as self-assured and smooth as ever.

Hopefully a video follows very soon. After the vibrant, mega-viral release that accompanied “Finesse (Remix),” I’m dying to see what they have in store this time around. In the meantime, press play on “Please Me” below!
