Katy Perry – Hot N Cold

Posted in Single Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2008 by kv

Well, Katy Perry certainly enjoyed kissing the girls when her first single “I Kissed A Girl” topped almost all the charts around the world. Her exquisite music taste is even getting better as she releases her third official single titled “Hot ‘N Cold” still off from her debut album “One Of the Boys”. 

For those who are tired of hearing “IKAG”, “Hot ‘N Cold” promises to deliver us with another electro-pop song that’ll make sure it makes its way to radios and your iPods / music players. The song is written by Katy Perry, Dr.Luke and Max Martin. It’s lyrics are quite a bit cheeky for the second time around for Katy. “You PMS like a Bitch” is a little bit remarkable. Agree?

Even way before the song is released, it already managed to gain sales due to her album “One Of The Boys” on iTunes and other music stores. It is currently on its way to the US top 10 with a current #12 spot. Will “Hot N Cold” equal the success of I Kissed a Girl? or will it even have much larger success than IKAG? 

RELEASED: September 9 (US), September 10 (AUS), October 6, 2008 (UK)

RATING: 4/5

TRACKLISTING: (iTunes)

1. Hot N Cold

It’s not surprising that Katy Perry still wins the heart of British fans, she’s still at #1 this week with her phenomenal anthem “I Kissed A Girl” for the 5th week in a row. She’s now on the running to become the artist with the most weeks at #1 this year after Duffy claimed the current reaching #1 for 5 weeks. Katy fended Swedish DJ Eric Prydz and the Pussycat Dolls from reaching #1.

Swedish DJ Eric Prydz still remains at #2 with his piano dance anthem “Pjanoo”. The highest new entry belongs to the sizzling dolls who was in London last week to promote their spanking new album “DOLL DOMINATION”. The Pussycat Dolls entered the charts at #3 with “When I Grow Up”.

Miley Cyrus was also in the running for a top 10 spot next week after she landed 14 from 23 last week with “SEE YOU AGAIN (Rock Mafia Remix)”. Ne-Yo’s unoriginal track spends its 2nd week in the charts finding a 21 spot leap with “Miss Independent”

Meanwhile, in the albums chart THE VERVE reigns supreme for the second time with their second #1 album “Forth”. It prevented The Script from gaining a second week at #1 which rose from #3 to #2 this week.

Still in the albums chart, Michael Jackson’s latest compilation CD “King Of Pop” climbs to #3 while Rihanna’s Reloaded album gains a top 5 spot due to her “DISTURBIA” success.
