Must Hear: Katy Perry – ‘Walking On Air’

Published: Monday 30th Sep 2013 by David

Just when we thought we couldn’t love Katy Perry anymore than we already did…she goes and does this.

This, being the release of her ‘Prism’ pulled single ‘Walking On Air‘, which we’re going to be bold enough to call this one of the best singles (from any genre) to drop this year.

At this point, we’d usually explain why this is- but since we’re too busy pre-ordering ‘Prism’ on iTunes, we simply don’t have the time to.

Find out why everyone here at TGJ HQ is enamoured with this jam below!!

  4. Elijah’sBijoux September 30, 2013

    Life upon life.

  5. Valerie (barb) September 30, 2013

    It kinda gives me the we found love vibe…. Katy must make this a single after unconditionally… Katy knows how to serve great and diverse pop music her music doesn’t sound the same like Gagas she should take notes…

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 30, 2013

      And ur fave should worry about getting another platinum album or Grammy cuz the black audience has been over her. So shut ur hypocrite ass up…

  6. HOTSTUFF September 30, 2013

    SLAYED.

    • Truth about love (p!nk stan) September 30, 2013

      I have a question

      How will Gaga recover from this sis???

      • HOTSTUFF September 30, 2013

        Baby Gags is so yesterday. when is her farewell tour ?

  7. ItsCheryl2bh September 30, 2013

    Sorry Gaga, don’t bother releasing Artpop anymore.

  8. jake.ubb September 30, 2013

    I actually really like this – just snagged it from iTunes. I can’t wait for the album so far she has given us great s*** and I am eager to hear the rest of Prism!

    Twitter: jmurdoc2 for a follow-back!

  9. NickiQueenraj September 30, 2013

  10. TEENAGE CREAM September 30, 2013

    SLAYTY PERRY <3

  11. SoGone4Monica September 30, 2013

    What kind of unsuspected slayage.

  12. QueenCeline September 30, 2013

    I really don’t know what Gaga’s going to do now.

  13. Truth about love (p!nk stan) September 30, 2013

    Kaaaaaaty!!!!! Yaaaaaas!!!!! I really like this you get 5 stars from me .

  14. YorkshireRiri September 30, 2013

    I know TGJ did not just give me my life on the train right now. NOT me wanting to twirl around this carriage like my oyster card depends on it.

  15. DemiQueenVato September 30, 2013

    I see Grammys everywhere.

  16. Britney stan September 30, 2013

    This shits on all those song Gaga songs she performed at the iTunes festival… Katys a threat cant lie..

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 30, 2013

      And Britney lost her steam years ago along with performing worse on iTunes and billboard than Gaga did. I can’t lie….

  17. Nostalgia1989 September 30, 2013

    Hit.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . September 30, 2013

      S*** *

  18. PalmsToTheSky September 30, 2013

    Queen Katy, we are not worthy.

  19. Na ni September 30, 2013

    U HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!! This is terrible!!! Roar dark horse, cute this?! No mam

    • MarinasDiamonds September 30, 2013

      Hello Gaga.

    • Britney stan September 30, 2013

      Gaga is that you?

    • RICHIE_RICH September 30, 2013

      I wouldn’t say terrible, but I understand where you’re coming from.

  20. TurntUp4Cici September 30, 2013

    Her music deadass brings joy to my heart.

  21. Xtina warrior September 30, 2013

    Katy may not be the best vocalist but she delivers in the music department unlike Lady Gaga, Katy seems like she really coming strong this era there’s no way Gaga will come out on top against her or Miley in the long run…

  22. Baby I September 30, 2013

    Walking on air! Is my fav song from katy period! But let’s not exaggerate pls its not That epic I can name 10 songs better than this that dropped this year!

  23. Baby I September 30, 2013

    Prism should just be renamed Teenage dream Part 2 tho…… As for Gaga that everyone is coming for should drop this art s*** and Slay us with some The Fame realness every bish (including my favs) will be bald!!!!!! Katy is clever than gaga knowing how difficult this industry is she serving us some generic pop cus it worked for her before but the bish should stop claiming its not Teenage dream part 2 tho cus it is

  24. Cici slays September 30, 2013

    GaGa sis, I suggest you push back Artpop to mid 2014…

    Katy this is EPIC!

  25. #DirtyLaundry September 30, 2013

    I just wanna know why roar was choosen as the first single when dark horse and walking on air s*** on it effortlessly.

    • Raven symone stan September 30, 2013

      I just wanna know why Kelly has four flop albums in a row.

      • IM A FREE B*TCH September 30, 2013

        unnecessary hate. his comment is legit, ur hate is useless and doesnt contribute to anything

  26. RICHIE_RICH September 30, 2013

    I prefer dark horse over this hell even roar . Walking on air just isn’t my type of music,

  27. ratedxxx(next broad) September 30, 2013

    this song is a hit? this sounds like a gaga reject song…hell even roar sound better than this crap…how the hell is applause generic, and this is a hit?

    if people actually think katy perry is a threat to gaga, because she sells singles better than gaga…

    katy is a guilty pleasure of mine because she knows she’s a pop star, she doesnt take it seriously, with the bragging,like so many replaceable pop stars out there..

    but a threat to gaga…ahahahahahahah

  28. Mike September 30, 2013

    Roar is a lot better

    This sounds like 90’s eurodance leftover

  29. ratedxxx(next broad) September 30, 2013

    people wants gaga to fail so damn much, that they actually become delusional..thinking a single artist is a threat to an album seller..

    now people who were bashing katy saying she’s generic, all of sudden a huge katy fan, because her singles are selling better than gaga’s?

    i had a good laugh over these comments….britney who was killing every pop stars, mandy moore, xtina, jessica simpson, and so on..only has 3 number 1 hits on the billboard 100

    so yea selling singles is so much better than selling albums…the fame shits on katy’s whole albums sales put together

    delusional is a hell of a drug

    • . : : h 2 o : : . September 30, 2013

      People wants ?

      How could someone be so illeterate ?

      How ?

      • Cuntycici September 30, 2013

        Yet you spelled illiterate incorrectly.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . September 30, 2013

        ^^ still nothing as bad as being British and still saying “people wants” everytime …

  30. . : : h 2 o : : . September 30, 2013

    Bai smdh

  31. REPUBLICAN September 30, 2013

    Better than anything Beyoncé, Ciara or Gaga could do.

  32. Patrick September 30, 2013

    Why wasnt this the first single? This is AWESOME!

  33. Liam September 30, 2013

    this reminds me of the 90s dance music…..i actually like this song and i’m not a katy fan! good job katy

  34. Raven symone stan September 30, 2013

    The little monsters are so pressed awwwwww

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 30, 2013

      Yet the monsters weren’t even the first to comment. I’ve seen at least 20 comments about Gaga so far. Lol. Talk about being pressed….

  35. Real music September 30, 2013

    I m the haters I’m walking on air good job katy feeling good this Monday

  36. cake like lady gaga September 30, 2013

    i prefer Dark Horse

    • . : : h 2 o : : . September 30, 2013

      And both are a total failure just like you, your name, your AVI, your musical taste, your font, your foreighn non-Arab country, AND your attempts to sound Black.

  37. Loyalty September 30, 2013

    There’s something very retro about this song. Its ok. I must admit I never really paid much attention to Katy besides the fact Teenage Dream was my fave pop song that year, I loved it. But I’m actually really starting to like her. I like her simplicity and the fact she just makes simple feel good pop music.

  38. Suicide Blonde September 30, 2013

    90’s dance music all over again, a mix between ‘Real MacCoy’s ‘Another Night’ and ‘2 Eivissa’s ‘Oh la la’, her best single ever, this is the first song of her that i really like, truly deserve to be #1.

  39. Careee Ender September 30, 2013

    Katy F**king Perry!!!!

    SLAY!

  40. Master September 30, 2013

    I hate this dance/pop s***. It’s pure faggotry.

    ======>>>

  41. The Purple One (Prince Stan) September 30, 2013

    This sounds like a REJECTED, circa. 1990 – 1994, ‘C & C Music Factory/Prince/Depeche Mode/Ace of Base’ Euro-Pop/Dance song…

    NEXT!!!!!!!

    The UNORIGINALITY is F****** REAL with these Kids.

    BYE.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . September 30, 2013

      Jake/Jared’s font 😥

      • Suicide Blonde September 30, 2013

        I will never understand your problem with Jared, he’s far away from being a troll, i expect that from people like you but not from him, are you jealous or secretly in love with him?, cuz there is not reason to act this way, i bet next time you gonna say, i’m a troll as well but it’s not gonna work with me, i won’t let you win.

        m.thatgrapejuice.net/2012/05/rihanna-dominates-biggest-selling-singles-21st-century-list

        You remember JAKE from 2011-2? Look at his AVI now ^^^^^^^^^^

        He stanned for Beyonce, Adele and Lady GaGa mainly, in addition to 9 other favs that change everyday.

        HE IS A TROLL. It’s not “me having a problem with him”.

        There was even another “Jake” in 2013 after Jared made his debut and had exactly the same font as Jared and Jake (2011-2), but he used around 10 other usernames after.

      • POP ROYALTY September 30, 2013

        I see the b**** is still scared. 😆

        Funny.

        Nour, leave him alone, he knows he is a troll, i exposed him since day 1, he’s just not right in the mind, he’s he type that will troll every comment section in every blog, i won’t be surprised from anything he do.

        @Suicide:

        i wanna know why you are always in the defense mode everytime someone mention “Him” ?

      • Suicide Blonde September 30, 2013

        @Pop
        I just don’t think he is the troll, he was a victim of people who dislike him, i would active my defense mode if someone do the same thing to you.

  42. HoneychildPlease September 30, 2013

    Hunty she snatched my wig so hard, got a b**** singing ” nothing Compares” yes yes yes yes Katy hunty!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • . : : h 2 o : : . September 30, 2013

      Hunty anything can snatch your wig nowadays, not really surprised.

    • Real September 30, 2013

      What the f*** is a “hunty?”

      Queeers…

      • POP ROYALTY September 30, 2013

        I know, Right ?

  43. LET’S BE REAL September 30, 2013

    LET KATY SLAY OUR SOULS! THIS IS AWESOME! HAPPY EXCITING MUSIC THAT REMINDS ME OF THE 90S BUT ISN’T A 90S WANNABE SONG. Little monsters …give it up. Katy is a superior artist because she’s not pretentious and she doesn’t try too hard to seem “deep” . Gaga thought by mimicking Madonna she’d become “it” again. Nope…sorry
    Katy slays

  44. Seriously? September 30, 2013

    THIS IS NOT A SINGLE. WHY DO PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND THIS? IT IS A PROMO SINGLE, NOT A SINLGE. IT WILL RECIEVE NO PROMOTION FROM KATY. IT’S SOLELY TO SELL THE ALBUM AND BUILD HYPE.

  45. SLAY_HIVE September 30, 2013

    I made a mistake of reading the comments before listening and all i can say is you b****** can OVEREXAGGERATE to the tea! This was alright! Nothing special imo.. BYE!

  46. SLAY_HIVE September 30, 2013

    I do like the beat but her voice is just to corny and weak for me

  47. So what b****!! WHo gonna stop me???? September 30, 2013

    Katy is going to slay with this album i can tell!!! Lessors can’t deal..Tell me when will your fav ever slay again?? Keep living out the glory year! B**** is so 2008

  48. Realest September 30, 2013

    Nothing special, just sounds like a song off the “a night a the Roxbury” soundtrack.. Not bad but far from epic, heard it before.

  49. So what b****!! WHo gonna stop me???? September 30, 2013

    Snippets are no fun to listen too! I guess that’s why biches are hating on all of this great new music. oh well to those petty h***

    • SLAY_HIVE September 30, 2013

      Stop being a scared b**** and be direct sweety..No one is worried about Katy and her Generic ass music. The little pre-teen white kids will eat this up though! 😉

      Learn the difference between hate and opinion hun!

  54. SLAY_HIVE September 30, 2013

    Deathh @ the same person making comments dedicated to Bey because i stated an OPINION! This s*** is generic and doesnt take much talent to sing! I’ve heard it before.. When will Katy get grammys for her “epic” music?? When will the singles slayage garner her a 150+million WW tour! You little 13 year old girls are so delusional..Ill let Katy stay in her lane! GM and BYE!

    • iconic cici September 30, 2013

      *Walking all over Beyonce dead career* I see why your mad sis.

      • Roar September 30, 2013

        Ooop

  55. Ms92 September 30, 2013

    Its alright. Its just like a recycled 90s dance throwback

  56. Del September 30, 2013

    This is most def a hit! It’s def influenced by 90s club music. Congrats Katy!

  57. Scheissethroned(GrapejuiceKing) September 30, 2013

    And Gaga is STILL on your minds! Smmfh y’all let Katy have her moment ALONE haha Hal stay bringing Gaga in it! She is constantly on your minds!

    Anyway this is a Dr.Luke and Max Martin mess. *dead* at the comments like Katy could actually ever deliver these vocals live.

    I have officially lost respect for half the accounts on TGJ EXCEPT @Slay_hive

    I NEED away from this atrocity

    *Walks Back Into Castle*

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 30, 2013

        As opposed to who? PORKTINA? Girl bye

      • Stop the drama Start the music September 30, 2013

        If Gaga’s time is up, Xtina’s time has been up. 2 flop albums in a row. Yall better help ya girl out instead of worrying about the b**** with the bigger fanbase which is gaga….

  58. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 30, 2013

    The slayage is real, another smash. Smash after smash after smash, I cannot wait for the album.

  59. Godnika Teas September 30, 2013

    What kind of slay? i love it!

  60. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 30, 2013

    Katy went ahead and snatched my wig and scalp bald.

    She brought that good grip to make sure she held on and pulled to perfection.

    Katy Perry is pop perfection, she knows how to make an awesome feel good pop song.

    Girl, imma need you to give me life after killing me dead with this pop awesomeness whilst I break the replay button. I’m walking on air, yassssss.

  61. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 30, 2013

    Gaga better push back artpop and dean FLOPause as a buzz single like her thieving friend, there’s no way she’ll have a chance or recover from this slayage, NO WAY.

  62. iconic cici September 30, 2013

    @SlayHive you sound jealous b****… The song is good stop hating and tell Beyonce I said to catch up heaux…

    • Red (I knew you were trouble) September 30, 2013

      A Ciara fan telling someone else to catch up HAHAHAHA!

      • Walking on air September 30, 2013

        Ciara shits on trailer shitft

      • iconic cici September 30, 2013

        Anyone shits on Taylor tbh

      • Red (I Knew You Were Trouble September 30, 2013

        When will Ciara sell 1 mill first week

  63. Red (I knew you were trouble) September 30, 2013

    I like it

  64. Roar September 30, 2013

    Of course the hive and monsters would be pressed their intimidated by Katy lol Katy is the new Queen of Pop and you h*** can’t handle it.

  65. cake like lady gaga September 30, 2013

    NOT at SLADY GODga remaining on your minds 😀 😀

    LOL you people live for GaGa

    Applause still on the charts

  66. BobbyJay September 30, 2013

    Kinda reminds me of Disclosure ft. Eliza doolittle -you and me baaur remix. But good song katy.

  67. Lotus September 30, 2013

    This s*** slays anything gaga has ever released.

  68. speechless September 30, 2013

    OK GIRL!!! I like everything she’s put out so far!!

  69. Titi September 30, 2013

    This sounds like a Mariah Carey remix from the 90’s. Except Mariah can actually sing….

    • JOHNVIDAL September 30, 2013

      Exactly! Sounds like a dated remix, not a f****** NEW song. This album can´t get anymore basic. At this rate Teenage Dream is going to seem like a masterpiece. The way mainstream music is declining… just scary.

  70. POP ROYALTY September 30, 2013

    I APPROVE.

    so mid 90’s and This is how you win Me.

    RIP to “the other girl” with Multiple Personalities.

  71. JER September 30, 2013

    She is NAWT serving that early 90’s house i LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  72. Unapologetic September 30, 2013

    Loveeeee this song, she served some 90’s house realness with this one!!

  73. Stop the drama Start the music September 30, 2013

    I might listen to it later since the kids “says” it slays but they say anything basic these days slays. Not really anxious to listen to a corny KP song but I will give it a chance.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 30, 2013

      You´re right. It´s just basic again. I swear these kids nowadays are truly delusional and are setting a new bar of low standards. I think I like it better than the other 3 songs we know from this girl´s album (which were basic as hell), but just that. She doesn´t even sound like herself (wait, that might be better lol)

  74. ClockinStans September 30, 2013

    B**** ,KATY? YOU DID NOTTT HAVE TO SNACH MY WIGG LIKE THIS!!!!! I WANT PRISM NOW!!! JUST LET ME GIVE YOU MY HARD EARNED COINS YASSSSSSSSSSSSS

  75. FLOP THIS WAY September 30, 2013

    Lmfao Gaga is in everybody’s mouth in a katy post!

    Shows How Relevant GODga is?

    LMFAOOO Katy is no thrreat to Gaga

    Gaga’s sold out worlwide tours,album sales, and endorsements will keep her earning more money than kunty perry!

  78. The Boy Toy September 30, 2013

    I love it!!

  79. JOHNVIDAL September 30, 2013

    Basic as always! At least it sounds different for her ( and I said for her cos the song sounds like a 90´s dance track we heard before. But better than the other songs at least 🙂

  80. Apologetic September 30, 2013

    Roar = Brave.2.0.

    Walking On Air = generic boring 90’s mess

    Dark Horse = interesting and amazing tune
