New Video: Katy Perry – ‘Harleys In Hawaii’

Published: Wednesday 16th Oct 2019 by Sam

Katy Perry makes a fresh bid for Pop sovereignty with new release ‘Harleys In Hawaii’ – the video for which was unwrapped moments ago.

The butter-smooth bop sees the singer drive in a more Urban-kissed direction following the roll-out of candy-coated cuts ‘Never Really Over’ and ‘Small Talk’ (which enjoyed varying levels of success).

‘Harleys’ serves as the latest component of a clear comeback effort from the star, who has been attempting to find her footing after 2017’s lukewarmly received ‘Witness.’

Having revealed that she’s veering away from the typical album setup and instead dropping songs as and when, she more recently asserted that an LP would surface when fans wanted. Which, to us, reads as “when I recapture my momentum.”

Will ‘Harleys’ spin her wheels in motion once again? Watch the Manson directed visual below and let us know…

A mature jam that may well magnetise her established audience and new listeners too. The video compliments as well.

We’re here for it. Are you?

    “A mature jam”.

    Okay…

  2. Always October 16, 2019

    Pretty cool video, I like it.

    Okay, so the song is actually good. I like it. However, I think this solidifies that she is not going to make a return to slaying the chart. Katy, unless you’re getting back with Dr. Luke and Max Martin, it’s over. This is not going to light up the charts, girl.

    Also, is Charlie Puth writing her entire damn album? He can barely get HIMSELF a hit these days, and she’s relying on him to write for her? Call Kesha, Bonnie McKee, Cirkut, Greg Kurstin, hell ANYONE from the first 3 albums. THIS AIN’T IT, SIS!!!

    We want big pop anthems, with a big chorus, and your vocals layers so it sounds like you can actually sing. GET IT TOGETHER OR JUST RELEASE THIS DAMN ALBUM AND TAKE THE L! I don’t care, you’re not paying my bills, but stop embarrassing yourself Katy.

      “I like it, it’s a good song” and then you go on to try and critique an artists growth, demanding they go back and make music they’ve already made before. You’re clueless And obviously miserable. I’m here for growth and more mature/s*** music from her. No artists wants to create the same stuff over and over again.

      • Only Facts October 16, 2019

        B*tch. I do like the song. Will I seek it out on Spotify? No. Will I skip it when it comes on the station? No. It’s a good song but is it worthy of her comeback? No! You know this new music is anything but growth compared to her first 3 albums. She’s lost her mojo without Luke and Max. Her new music is trash 🗑 *swish swish bish*

        You can like a song but demand more from an artist! Fans shouldn’t settle for subpar! Britney’s fans didn’t settle for the weak a** Britney Jean album and Britney and her team listened to the fans. Katy is ignoring the fans. This song isn’t mature. It’s safe. She needs to fire her team.

      You snapped bravo

    Mh. It’s nice, I guess. Wouldnt listen to it on purpose, but wouldnt skip it as an album track either. It’s not a good single choice though. But whatever, there weren’t many interesting songs this year anyway.

    No.

    Production wise it is unexpectedly good…. 😲 They fitted her to the lane of the vibe neatly with no edges – smooth… How much vocal correction did they use in the studio though because we know KT be one out of breath hot mess live stage 🙄 Was this song wasted on KT? Probably. Is it going to no.1 and securing her new hair weave focused comeback trail? Probably not. 🤷🏾‍♂️

    • Carlitos October 16, 2019

      Katy’s vocals are not breathy except when she’s MOVING and singing. Otherwise, her vocals are sharp and strong. If you watched her sing acoustically live, you’d know!

  7. Clarkson October 16, 2019

    A matured serious side from her

    But why do I have a feeling she’s copying a black musician with this sound and the vibe. I cant put my finger on it but I have heard this sound before.

    • What up October 16, 2019

      You can’t put your finger on it because you’re to far up cabbagepatch cockatoo’s a$$$!!!

    • Carlitos October 16, 2019

      Why do I feel like you always feel like all white artists are stealing from black artists? Stfu and sit tf down!

    • XYZ October 17, 2019

      Every “chill out” Artist

  8. G-bby October 16, 2019

    Surprisingly I like the song. It’s not what I expected from Katy, but in a good way.

  9. Jnb October 16, 2019

    I love this

  10. Moti25 October 16, 2019

    She should’ve put Drake on it, but I love it anyway!! Welcome back Katy! 🔥

    • NoMaam October 16, 2019

      idk about drake but a rap feature would’ve definitely been hot. would’ve brought the song home.

      nobody ratchet tho. somebody who could pull off a cute, s*** vibe without looking like they were trying too hard.

  11. Katy’s cat October 16, 2019

    Seems like the trolls are the only ones that fell for it lmao!

  12. NoMaam October 16, 2019

    something about this song feels like it would’ve gone over better as a duet

  13. Liam October 16, 2019

    I’m feeling this this song…Katy delivered with this one

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. October 16, 2019

      @Liam – I agree.

  14. MonkeyseeMonkeydo October 16, 2019

    Great album cut but not single worthy!

  15. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. October 16, 2019

    Very nice Katherine.

  16. Jake October 17, 2019

    Nope still ain’t it. This reminds me of the Anti roll out. She should just do a generic pop one. It’s not like she doesn’t know how to! I’m confusion. Worst case call Gaga, Kesha or Taylor to duet and gain momentum. Hell Britney or Camila will do it.

  17. Sclh October 17, 2019

    That video was awesome. Love the song ♥️
