While many pointed to the switch from dark hair as the leading force that derailed the career of one-time Pop Titan Katy Perry, diehard fans assert the absence of two key figures is to blame: Dr. Luke and Benny Blanco.
While both key contributors to every one of her major label albums except the critically and commercially panned, ‘Witness,’ Blanco is the man behind the magic of some of her biggest hits including “I Kissed A Girl,” “Hot N Cold,” “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” and more.
As she gears up for the summer 2020 release of her yet-titled sixth studio LP, fans – affectionately called #KatyCats – have been clamoring for pertinent details about its release, especially producers and such. That’s probably why they were thrilled to see her Instagram live chat with Benny Tuesday night (April 21).
The two did not specifically discuss plans for the new album, but it did not stop fans from insisting they were working together.
Here’s hoping Perry is considering going back to the drawing board to create a refreshed, updated take on the sounds that supported her most popular eras.
