Hot N Cold

Single Release

Perry releases Hot N Cold, from her album, One of the Boys. The song is inspired by an ex-boyfriend:

One day this person would send me a text and I would be so thrilled about it because I had been waiting for some kind of sign – a smoke signal. He would be all interested and then I would just lose him, or one day he would want to see me and then one day he wouldn’t. I didn’t know what was wrong with him, if he was bipolar, or if he was wearing a mood ring. I took the theme and the song kind of spilled out of me.

One of The Boys

Katy_Perry_-_One_of_the_BoysPerry releases her second full-length studio album One of The Boys. The 12 track record features Perry’s number one single I Kissed a Girl as well as singles Hot n Cold and Waking Up In Vegas. All tracks are written by Perry with collaborations from Greg Wells, Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard.

It’s been a long and winding road that started about five years ago. I came from Santa Barbara to Los Angeles. A fantastic producer named Glen Ballard brought me out here and kind of looked after me. And then I started this thing, where I was signed and dropped, signed and dropped by a couple of labels. Then one day, Capitol Records picked me up and decided they wanted to make a Pretty Woman story out of me, without the prostitution.
