Katy Perry is a firework!

by jcpinkluv on 8/30/2010

Katy Perry's album delivers. Not only are her vocals amazing, but the beats and harmonies are great. No wonder her singles are breaking records! -JC

Product Overview

Preceded by her second number one single on Billboard magazine's Hot 100, "California Gurls," Katy Perry's Teenage Dream is filled with dance-pop that made One of the Boys her breakthrough album, but this time there's a decidedly summer spin. Hitmakers like Greg Smith, Dr. Luke, Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, and even Weezer's Rivers Cuomo lend a hand for what Perry predicts "will be one of those records that is everybody's favorite guilty pleasure."

Artist Overview
A former Christian artist, Katy Perry rebranded herself as a larger-than-life pop star and rose to prominence in 2008, when she topped the pop charts with "I Kissed a Girl." After several years in the industry -- a period that included a Christian album, shelved collaborations with the Matrix, and an unreleased solo project -- Perry had suddenly become one of the biggest pop stars, celebrated as much for her outsized behavior and outrageous fashion choices as her music. She managed to top One of the Boys (2008), her platinum-selling pop debut, with Teenage Dream (2010), a follow-up that spawned five number one U.S. pop hits, including "Firework." Prism (2013), her third album for Capitol, was highlighted by "Roar" and "Dark Horse." ~ Andrew Leahey
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone - "TEENAGE DREAM is the kind of pool-party-pop gem that Gwen Stefani used to crank out on the regular, full of SoCal ambience and disco beats."
Spin - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Perry delivers the gurl-gone-wild stuff with requisite sass..."
Entertainment Weekly (p.124) - "She seems to connect best in '80s leotard-lady mode, as showcased on the deliciously glitchy throwback 'E.T.'..." -- Grade: B-
Entertainment Weekly (p.80) - "Perry is clearly serious about the business of hit songcraft." -- Grade: B-
Billboard (p.28) - "[T]his new depth shouldn't surprise....Perry is primarily a smart and personal pop songwriter."
