John Mayer: Katy Perry’s Roar is “Massive!”
The “Waiting On the World to Change” crooner sang his girlfriend’s praises in a new interview with Billboard.
Mayer gushed, “I remember hearing it for the first time, going like, ‘Wow what an interesting experience’ to hear something that you identify as massive before it’s massive.”
“I thought it was a really sweet, unforgettable sort of experience to hear someone’s work while they still have a very nascent sort of relationship with it.”
As for his own duet with Perry on “Who You Love” (from his forthcoming album Paradise Valley), John shared that it’s based on the idea of “I love you based on the fact that I’ve tried to run and I’m not running and I give up.”
“I immediately thought about Katy and I was like, what a cool voice. What a cool artistic personality to have on. It was a really fun opportunity to write like, her answer to that. So you get these two sides to this relationship that are brutally honest but no less universal.”
