Though the internet at large may have jumped the gun by leaking Katy Perry‘s new single “Roar” over the weekend, today (August 12) we still get the promised premiere. And it’s a lyric video. And it’s done with emojis. Maybe she got inspiration from Aziz Ansari when he did an all emoji version of “Ni**as In Paris.” Either way it’s entirely fitting and you can watch the text conversation play out in the video above.
The stadium-sized power anthem — rumored to be produced by her long-time production team Dr. Luke and Max Martin — is the first single off of Katy Perry’s forthcoming and “darker” album Prism.
