New Song: Katy Perry – ‘Part Of Me’

Published: Thursday 9th Feb 2012 by Rashad

‘Peacock’ performer Katy Perry unveiled her colorful ‘Teenage Dream: Complete Confection’ cover today much to fan delight.  And, as ever to keep a smile on her ever faithful fanbase’s faces, the former Mrs. Brand is debuting the first offering from the repackaged set – ‘Part Of Me’.  

Set for release to digital retailers on February 21st,  this won’t be the first time the track has seen the light of day as an early leak made rounds on the net in 2010.  If the song is set to be retooled has yet to be determined.

But what we do know is that you can take a listen to ‘Part’ after the jump!  Get into it below:



‘This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me’

The lyrics certainly come in a timely manner given the surface of news today that Perry’s divorce settlement allowed her to keep all of the $44 million she amassed during her marriage to comedian Russell Brand.

Fun and upbeat, this empowerment anthem sonically falls in line with most of Perry’s offerings – in the lane of nondescript.  If sticking to the tried-and-true formula is what Perry needs to best Michael and Janet‘s records has yet to be proven.  For, if this week’s charts are any indication, clearly ‘The One That Got Away’ is truly the one that got away from (and in the way of) cementing Katy’s name in the record books.

‘Complete Confection’ crashes in stores on March 27th.

    Very Katy…Very Catchy…Very Much expected

  2. Perry Power February 9, 2012

    Im pretty sure Ive had this song on my iPod since 2010. I cant wait to hear a polished clean version of it though

  3. Animal Forever February 9, 2012

    This song is old. She should release her collabo with Rihanna already

  4. iloveXtina February 9, 2012

    kind of a let down since it’s not that different from the demo i downloaded last year. It’s still going to smash tho!

  5. Imgunnacheckuboo February 9, 2012

    If Katy’s songs were peopl they’d be vampires. Pale, no heart or blood in their veins, empty shells that need to leech off of others for sustenance.

  6. LTM February 9, 2012

    I love this song because it gives me a One of the Boys era Katy feeling. I really miss that era with her fruit inspired fashion. This song is very much a Katy Perry song. Im curious to see how the video will come out

  7. LTM February 9, 2012

    Firework, Lost, Thinking of You, Im Still Breathing, Who Am I Living For, Circle the Drain, Pearl, etc have no heart and are empty shells? bye

  8. Minajesty February 9, 2012

    she is so 2010! “teenage dream” is the only song by her i like, but otherwise she just shouts and whispers. very little talent, alot of overrated hype.

  9. NaQu February 9, 2012

    Katy is greedy as hell. Seriously, you’ve had enough. Know when to say WHEN. LFN should have been the period at the end of the sentence and she should be taking a break now. Keep on trying to force feed the public the same sandwich and soon they’re gonna throw it back at you. This is gonna be her “Marry the Night.”

  10. Rihanna is Queen February 9, 2012

    Flop! Just like “The Flop that Got Away”! That pose she does is just like Floponce’s 4’s cover! 2 copycatting flops!

    It does have a One of the Boys feeling to it. Maybe it wasnt written for that album or alittle time afterwards

    i like it a very katy perry song! what i hope is that she releases the song with rihanna right before the album drops! i was dissapointed when it wasnt on teenage dream or loud and it wasnt on talk that talk, it really needs to come out! fans have waited two years!

  13. Perry Power February 9, 2012

    As Ive already said, how can you judge Katy’s talent when Nicki has none herself

  14. LTM February 9, 2012

    Im praying it happens!! Tricky Stewart and Katy have been dropoing hints of the collabo happening

    Im loving your new gravatar

  15. LTM February 9, 2012

    I think everyone agrees that the Rihanna+Katy collabo needs to be released already

  16. KatyCat February 9, 2012

    It will be another top 5 hit and the pressed will deal

  17. L21480 February 9, 2012

    She sucks almost as much as Gaga.

  18. KatyCat February 9, 2012

    @Rihanna is Queen
    B**** bye!! How many times has your fav been sued for copying? Lets not. Part of Me will slay the majority of your faves singles just like The One That Got Away did. Katy snatched Rihanna’s crown as the Queen of The Charts.

  19. LTM February 9, 2012

    correct me if im wrong, but Rihanna holds the record for most top 10/20 singles by any female act. and theres the whole 11 #1s in 6 years record. she is the Queen of the Charts too.

  20. Perry Power February 9, 2012

    @Rihanna Is Queen
    Hush, Beyonce is not a flop and Katy isnt copying anyone.

    The Sims is the only video game I play, its addicting. To bad it destroyed my old laptop :(. I plan onbuying the Katy Perry edition, I dont care if it crashes this laptop

  21. Katy+GaGa=Queens February 9, 2012

    I feel sorry for the people who hate Katy Perry and Lady GaGa becuase they will dominate this year.

    For Katy:
    Teenage Dream re-release
    New singles
    Concert DVD
    Possible 3-D concert in theatre

    For GaGa
    New Album
    New Singles
    The Born this Way Ball

  22. LTM February 9, 2012

    I like how all the KatyCats on TGJ are all on the same post at the same time lol. I remember when I was the only one here…

    @Perry Power
    lol people are always shocked when I tell them I have a Xbox360 that I use frequently. The Sims 3 is already out forXbox but IDK if the Katy Perry edition will be released. I think it be released as an add on for the orginal

  23. UnMutedOne February 9, 2012

    They were supposed to “dominate” last year, but wound up getting upstaged by Adele instead. I’d love to know why you think 2012 would be any different…

  24. Katy+GaGa=Queens February 9, 2012

    Did Adele’s album sell 1.9million in a week last year? Did Adele tie a record with the King of Pop last year? Adele will fade out just like Norah Jones, Amy Winehouse, Nelly Furtado, Duffy, Avril Lavigne and so many other “flavors of the month”.

  25. Perry Power February 9, 2012

    Hahaha Im shocked! You dont strike me as the video game type of girl. Lets tinychat

  26. Yea i said it February 9, 2012

    @KATY+GAGA=QUEENS but she did sell 16 millions plus copies and will win grammys besides them

  27. Katy+GaGa=Queens February 10, 2012

    @Yea I Said It
    The Fame:13million plus sold and has won Grammys. Not to mention the singles slayed every song off 21. Will Adeles tour rank as one of the top grossing tours by a female act? Will it gross over 200million dollars like the Monster Ball or 60million like the California Dreams Tour? Will she break every chart record in the books?

  28. UnMutedOne February 10, 2012

    Are you SERIOUSLY trying to compare Gaga and Katy’s “accomplishments” last year to Adele’s in an attempt to argue in their favor? LOL Both of their albums have sold less than 1/2 of what Adele’s did…

  29. MRDIVABITCH February 10, 2012

    WTF?? the guitar riff is exactly like one of Britney’s songs from her latest album…

    Firework, Lost, Thinking of You, Im Still Breathing, Who Am I Living For, Circle the Drain, Pearl, etc have no heart and are empty shells? bye

    This!!! I freakin LOVE Thinking Of You!!

  31. Gilberto February 10, 2012

    It sounds like Britney Spears’ Until The World Ends. So generic. So uninspiring. I ain’t here for this s***. This song is basic! Basic song for basic b******.
    Katy Perry is making sure to milk the Teenage Dream era to death, she knows that her next album will be a huge flop. Dr.Luke, who produced all her #1 hits singles of this era, signed an exclusive 5-year-contract with Sony , therefore Katy Perry won’t work with him no more.
    She’s so desesperate to get another #1 single, trying to break Michael Jackson’s record. B****, please! Michael didn’t have to release remixes and sell his singles for 50 cents. Katy Perry is doing many tricks to archive her “records”. That’s pathetic. Michael sold millions and millions of albums and got all these #1 hits, in other hands Katy Perry’s album strugges to sell 1.5 million. LOL. FLOP. FLOP. FLOP.
    Teenage Dream Tour had 119 concerts, but it only grossed less than $60 million in 2011. Lady Gaga’s tour had 39 concerts and grossed $64 million in 2011. LOL. See the difference? FFFFFFFFFFFLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP.
    I won’t even bring up the fact she can’t sing and can’t dance. I already dragged herself and her fans too much. I slayed her flop ass.

    Billboard supposedly recently changed their rules about RE-RELEASED albums. So the singles released from the ‘Teenage Dream The Complete Confection’ album, will chart as its own album’s singles…

    Therefore if “Part Of Me,” reaches #1, or either of the 2 other new songs from the re-release, she will not beat MJ’s record. Sadly I really wanted to see that too: (

    Oh well, she technically still could build up hype with some new single(s) and then release “Hummingbird Heartbeat” or maybe “Peacock” and achieve 6 #1s from ‘Teenage Dream’ cause those wouldn’t count toward ‘Confection.’

  35. JohnVidal February 10, 2012

    Some people are so basic that this song probably will get the #1

  36. KD February 10, 2012

    Am i the only one that sees the bad photoshop job???? What is going on with her head?

  37. KAT DELUNA FAN February 10, 2012

    l dont like or hate it,it’s ok

  38. MISHKA February 10, 2012


  39. boolicious February 10, 2012

    y’all are nuts. KP ONLY caters to 13-17 yr olds, after that they grow some form of intelligence and realize her music stinks. Go listen to latest GOTY’s breakup song, and that’s old skool IMO, but a helluvalot better than this cartoon character. And I mean that, she’s a cross between ‘Barney the dinosaur’ and Smurfette.

  40. ROYALACE February 10, 2012

    YASSSS KATY!!! Slay these pathetic girls lives with another instant smash. Their faves could NEVER do it and that is why they are bitter and angry, trash talking you on random blogs while you continue to make that money! WERK!!!!
