10 Essential Katy Perry Songs


Katy Perry is having a major moment. She is by far the indisputable Queen of Pop (sorry Tay) and is slaying everything from the BIG GAME to her world tour and everything in between.

In just two weeks, Katy is bringing her world tour to EPIX. We’re getting ready for the big premiere of Katy Perry: The Prismatic World Tour on March 28th with these 10 Essential Katy Perry songs.

Which one is your favorite?

1. Dark Horse ft. Juicy J

This is one of those songs that gets stuck in your head forever. Between the beat and Juicy J, you’ll be feeling like you need to drive down the street in your convertible with the music blasting.


2. Roar

The ultimate fem power song about finding your own voice and standing up for yourself, that will have you singing along whether you want to or not.


3. E.T. ft. Kanye West

You probably never thought you would like a song about alien abduction, but then Katy had to go and team up with Kanye and then blam, it’s all over for you.


4. California Gurls ft. Snoop Dogg

Who doesn’t love a collaboration with The Doggfather himself, Snoop Dogg?  This infectious ode to California and LA girls is both tarty and sweet with plenty of innuendo and a music video that looks like a real world Candy Crush.


5. This Is How We Do

An unapologetic hip hop meets rock track about sporting that bling, getting bottle service and straight up livin’ that life.


6. Birthday 

The disco-esque beat and catchy lyrics will have you shaking your booty in your birthday suit around your house while you pre-game for a night out.


7. Walking On Air 

A fun progressive house dance song that is reminiscent of 90s freestyle. It’s one of those songs that makes you happy after you hear it.


8. I Kissed A Girl

 The song that propelled Katy into super stardom is still just as infectious today as it was when it first came out in 2008.


9. Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)

Come on, we’ve all been there before, no shame.


10. Firework

 Katy rocks the vocals on this epic song. There’s just something about it that is uplifting and empowering all at the same time.
