Listen To Every Track Off Katy Perry’s Prism Album

In: Donovan, Music

Earlier this week Katy Perry previewed 30-second-snippets of every Prism track on iTunes. With just a few days to go before the official street date, the 28-year-old is streaming the entire album on her website via Soundcloud. That’s one way to beat all the leaks. The “Roar” singer revealed the first 300,000 people who purchase a physical copy of Prism will get limited edition packaging.

“USA: EXCLUSIVE! The 1st 300k copies of #PRISM (Deluxe) has a seed prism you can plant to spread the light! Pre-order,” – Katy Perry

After a quick listen to the album, the tracks that impress me the most are “This Is How We Do,” “Birthday,” “Walking On Air,” It Takes Two,” “International Smile” and of course the already leaked “Dark Horse” featuring Juicy J. I have to admit, I enjoyed the album much more than I expected given that “Roar” drives me absolutely crazy. It appears that Miss Perry could match the success of Teenage Dream and rack up several chart-toppers. Listen to Prism below and weigh in afterward.

Did you catch Ryan Murphy and company’s tribute to Cory Monteith on Glee last night? I can’t even imagine how difficult it was for the writers, crew and especially actors to film this episode. With emotions still raw, I’m certain plenty of tears were shed during filming.

Did it live up to the hype? Given the delicate nature, producers did a solid job. It was a little uneven and disjointed at parts, but when it was on, they got it right. Without question, Lea Michele’s “Make You Feel My Love” performance was the most heartbreaking. I’m certain those tears were 100 percent authentic.

Other musical standouts include Amber Riley’s “I’ll Stand By You” and Kevin McHale & Chord Overstreet’s duet on “Fire & Rain.” On the complete opposite spectrum, Naya Rivera’s “If I Die Young” disappointed. It sounded too fast, plus her storyline seemed forced. Why Dianna Agron wasn’t invited is beyond insane. Besides Kurt Hummel and Rachel Berry, Quinn had the closest connection to Finn and not Santana. I really hope behind the scenes drama and politics weren’t the reason for Quinn’s omission.

At the end of the episode, FOX aired PSAs filmed by the actors persuading people to help others, who are struggling with addiction. They urged people to call 1-800-662-HELP and find help on a treatment website. Profits from official track sales will go to Monteith’s favorite charity, Project Limelight. Check out all the performances from “The Quarterback” below and be sure to weigh in with your thoughts on the episode afterwards.

UPDATE: The tribute episode gave Glee it’s biggest audience in more than a year with 7.4 million tuning in. The episode tied ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy for the lead among adults 18-49 in its hour.

Kanye West visited Jimmy Kimmel last night to squash their “epic” two week “rap feud.” Even though both maintained that the entire thing wasn’t a publicity stunt or staged, I still call BS. Perhaps not on Kimmel’s part, but the Twitter insults from West’s end reek of a Kardashian antic. Don’t you agree?

In honor of Kanye’s appearance, Jimmy resurrected his Mean Tweets segment. This time only featuring musicians. Watch the likes of Selena Gomez, John Legend, Pharrell, John Mayer,Adam Levine, the Backstreet Boys and Ke$ha read unflattering Tweets about themselves from their respective haters. The insults directed at country artists like Darius Rucker, Brad Paisley and Lady Antebellum are the best. Check out the music edition below.

When it comes to music, I have serious ADD. Rarely do I ever fully listen to an entire song. Just ask anyone who’s been with me on a road trip. It’s such a problem, I consciously make an effort to scroll the slider to the end to make sure my iTunes knows to increase the song’s play count. Otherwise, most of my library would have zero plays.

Naturally, with that in mind, mashups are my audio adderall. You can listen to numerous songs without ever having to skip or fastforward a track. This latest one titled “Royal Burn” is one of the best I’ve listened to recently. It features Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry and Lorde. Representing for the men are Macklemore, Mike Will Made It and OneRepublic. If you like what you hear, click on the download link and follow the instructions.

Earlier this week, Britney Spears debuted her new music video for “Work Bitch” and it featured the incredibly sexy, Richie Nuzzolese. As shown him above, you may recognize him from Katy Perry‘s “Last Friday Night” music video, among other things like the “Dirty LaundryAndrew Christian video and more. We’ve also previously featured him in a Model Behavior post.

Aside from the music video, Nuzzolese is working on a YouTube project with some friends and is working on his own music. He’s posted a few covers on line and is busy recording his own original stuff as well. Other things you might recognize him from is a Renuzit commercial and if you watch the E! Network, he’s the guy promoting the Ross Matthews talk show.

Check out a bunch of videos as well as some exclusive never before released photos of the hottie below. Enjoy!

Katy Perry Walks On Air On Hot New Dance Track

In: Donovan, Music

As most of you know, I wasn’t a huge fan of “Roar.” I was expecting much more from this new highly-hyped more mature era from Katy Perry. The track felt more like a leftover from Teenage Dream than anything else. However, with her new track, the 28-year-old finally delivers.

Walking On Air” is the latest single off her Prism album. The former Mrs. Brand is serving major 90s deep house realness. She teams up with frequent Robyn collaborator Klas Ahlund. The result is pure dance perfection, and not in that David Guetta cookie-cutter EDM kind of way either. Check out the hot new track below.

It’s no secret that I haven’t warmed up to “Roar” as of yet, but that just changed thanks to a hot new remix by Jump Smokers. Sure, the chorus still drives me a little insane, but at least it’s more tolerable in this new version. The sped-up vocals with the new throbbing beat elevates Perry’s chart-topper into a hot club bangin’ anthem.

In a completely different direction, Perry goes all broody in a new track off Prism. She teams up with Juicy J on the urban-tinged “Dark Horse.” The beat during the verses is everything. All you booty-shaking twerkers will be itching to drop it like it’s hot during it. This should’ve been the lead cut given that her Prism era was supposed to be darker and more mature. “Roar” wasn’t that, but “Dark Horse” lives up to the promise. Give it a listen below.
