Katy Perry Shares Reggae-Tinged Tease of New Song 'Chained to the Rhythm'
On Monday, the Recording Academy revealed that Katy Perry would be performing at Sunday's Grammys, and then on Tuesday (Feb. 7), Katy herself began teasing a new song coming out this Friday. Now, we have our first (very brief) taste of the song -- which is called "Chained to the Rhythm," Billboard has heard -- thanks to a new Instagram post.
The visual accompanying the song teaser shows Perry walking in silver stilettos with a disco ball chained to her ankle, as a reggae-tinged intro plays in the final few seconds. The reggae/dance hybrid sound lends credence to rumors that the new song features Bob Marley grandson Skip Marley, who just signed to Island Records and released his own track "Lions" last Friday. Perry even took to Twitter to shout out Skip's new song, calling him "the voice of our REVOLUTION."
It remains to be seen whether Perry will sing "Chained to the Rhythm" for the first time at the 59th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, where she'll perform alongside The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, Bruno Mars and many, many more.
