Katy Perry returns with a new song titled Small Talk. The singer is keeping her momentum for the release of her new album going. Katy Perry teased the news Tuesday by posting four photos of lyrics from the song on a notepad — one of which Charlie Puth reposted on his Instagram story, fueling speculation that Puth is either featured on or co-wrote the track.
In a sequence of photos shared on Instagram Tuesday, the singer, 34, posted notes “from the desk of Katy Perry,” including snippets of what her newest single, “Small Talk” seemingly includes. The “California Gurls” singer added “#SmallTalk” to the caption of each of the photos, hinting to fans what the notes were about.
“Isn’t it weird / That you’ve seen me naked / We had conversations about forever / Now it’s about the weather okay,” read the first lyric.
The second note followed, “Isn’t it wild / That I know your weakness / And everybody at the party thinks / That you’re the best since sliced bread.”
“I just can’t believe / We went from strangers to lovers to / Strangers in a lifetime,” read the third revealing note. A fourth note, posted Wednesday morning, read, “Acting like we never met / Faking like we’d just forget / We were lovers.”
Perry’s songwriting team behind her 2013 hit “Dark Horse,” including the song’s co-creators Dr. Luke and Cirkut, to have copied Christian rap artist Marcus Gray’s 2008 song, “Joyful Noise.” Last Thursday, the jury decided on a grand total of $2.78 million owed for the copyright infringement.
