Katy Perry and her BFF Rihanna are already like sisters outside of the studio, and now the pop superstars are ready to put their diva dynamic to work on a new music collaboration!
Katy spoke about the upcoming duet on Britain’s Radio 1, revealing, “We’ve collaborated on a lot of things, but just not songs yet. It’s one of those things that’s got so much build up that we have to deliver.” While Katy and RiRi are eager to please their fans, they’re not planning on putting out just any old collaboration for the sake of having one. Perry even took a swipe at a lackluster Beyonce and Shakira duet to prove her point, insisting, “I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song ‘Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves,’ not like ‘Beautiful Liar.’ I definitely want to do something that is so iconic.” Meow!
Katy went on to explain that busy schedules have thus far prevented the no-brainer collab from coming into fruition, but when the track eventually drops, it will be one to remember. “[Rihanna’s] kind of busy, too. We’re both busy but we planted the seed two years ago. How disappointed would you be if that song came out and it’s no good? Sometimes you have to wait for greatness.”
While you wait for the epic duet, listen to Katy’s latest tune ‘Wide Awake,’ off her upcoming album ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection,’ below. The re-release of her 2010 chart-topping album drops March 26.
