Katy Perry – Firework Review
The third single from Katy Perry’s album ‘Teenage Dream’ is certainly a rare gem. Since its release in October 2010, ‘Firework’ has become an anthem for self empowerment. It has inspirational lyrics that are carefully sparkled throughout a danceable beat. Perry considers the song as the most important on this CD.
It is a disco rock song with strategic influences of dance-rock, euro-pop, and electro house. Perry has revealed that the track was written under the influence of ‘On the Road,’ the well-read novel by Jack Kerouac.
The compelling simplicity is obviously the strength of this song. It is exemplary because it is straightforward with a sense of self-esteem, something that may not be identified with any other song from Perry and from other recording artists. The lyrics are so frank that the message is emphasized without saying too much. Overall, the track is highly melodic, catchy, and effervescent.
It is not surprising that the song has achieved commercial success. It was the third consecutive No. 1 single from the same album. Perry became the next female singer who achieved such a record after Monica in 1998. It was just right that it earned raves and positive reviews.
