In honor of Katy Perry’s new single, “Swish, Swish”, and her upcoming album, Witness, I thought I’d go back and give you what I think is her most underrated song. It’s called “Pearl.”
From her album, Teenage Dream, “Pearl” is a charming ballad that shows Katy’s softer side. Never released as a single, it nevertheless holds a place in my eyes as one of her best songs. Katy sings about a girl that was ruined by a guy, a girl that was once as beautiful as a pearl, but allowed her relationship to change her. The mood is cold and dark to demonstrate the girl’s sadness.
The twist? Katy’s that girl! Despite this revelation, it ends on an empowering note, that she’ll move on and get stronger, and other women can too.
What do you think? What’s your favorite underrated Katy Perry song? Tell me in the comments.
See you later!
