“Passenger” appeared on Britney Spears’ eighth studio album, Britney Jean. It was co-written by Spears along with Sia Furler, Katy Perry, Andrew Swanson and Diplo with production from the latter. A demo of an early version of the cut featuring Perry’s vocal has surfaced.
Katy’s version, as one would expect, is starkly different. It’s less robotic and seems more of a natural fit for the “Swish Swish” hitmaker. She gives it vulnerability with her livelier delivery. Give it a listen below and see if you agree.
