John Mayer is proud of girlfriend Katy Perry and her new single “Roar,” saying that he knew it would be a “megaton bomb” sized hit.
Speaking with Billboard, Mayer says that he got wrapped up in the moment of witnessing the creation of a “huge song” before it has even “left the stable.”
“I remember hearing it, going like, ‘Wow what an impressive experience’ to hear something that you identify as massive before it’s massive” he said “In a way you get swallowed up by it, it’s so big,” Mayer said.
Perry’s newest release “Roar” was leaked to the Internet early on August 10 and was playing on the radios later that day. The track wasn’t officially digitally released until August 12 and quickly reached Number 1 on the Billboard Digital Charts.
Mayer went on to say “Because it’s such an incredibly big song that it doesn’t need you tell anybody, while you’re eating lunch, [that] millions of people are going to be dancing on tables to that.”
