Katy Perry Teams Up With Lil Yachty For “Chained To The Rhythm” Remix

March 23, 2017

Just when you thought Katy Perry’s “Chained To The Rhythm” had run its course, the pop star has started rolling out remixes. Hot Chip transformed the song into a distorted club-banger last week, while Lil Yachty puts a wavy spin on it today (March 22). The production is radically different, but Katy’s vocal remains untouched. The 19-year-old simply adds a couple of verses, focusing on the song’s overt feel-good message rather than the subtext. “Chained to the beat now feeling good, got good vibes I can feel it in my feet,” He raps. 

“Now take a shot baby, loosen up you’re the star of the scene and I went from reading magazines to being on the cover, get up in the groove now let me see you move now.” It all hangs together surprisingly well. Barring further remixes, I think we’re due for something new. Katy has been teasing snippets of new music and promised to roll out a couple of singles before releasing the album. It will be interesting to see if the second taste of KP4 is a throwback to the fluffy stuff or another dose of woke-pop. Listen to her Lil Yachty collab below.
