Katy Perry, ‘Part of Me': Listen to a Snippet!

Katy Perry‘s ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection‘ features three previously unreleased tracks. The first single from the revamped album will be ‘Part of Me,’ a breakup anthem that couldn’t be better timed for the recently divorced starlet.


The track is somewhat similar to ‘The One That Got Away’ in that it’s a song about a relationship ending set to a pulsating beat. However, ‘Part of Me’ is less heartbroken and more defiant than its predecessor, and an especially stark contrast to her heartwrenching acoustic version of her last single. ‘Part of Me’ is letting a jerk ex know that he won’t get the best of her. You go, girl!

“I’m moving forward and had a few things left to get off my chest,” Perry said of the album. We’re betting this track, perhaps reflective of her breakup with Russell Brand, is one of those few things. Though ‘Part of Me’ was written before her split (demos lurked around YouTube for a while until being pulled recently), its release is perfectly, if bittersweetly, timed.

Perry penned the track with pal Bonnie McKee and produced it with mastermind hit maker Dr. Luke, so expect to hear this a whole lot on Top 40 radio. The single will be released Feb. 21, but it’s available for pre-sale on Amazon right now. Considering how catchy this tune is, we can’t wait to hear what other sweet sounds are in store on ‘The Complete Confection.’
