Katy Perry continues to treat fans ahead of the release of her sixth studio album, Smile, next week. The singer gives fans the empowering and celebratory ballad ‘What Makes A Woman.’
“Is it the way I talk sweet? The way my skin is soft? Or how I can be a bitch? Make you keep your fingers crossed?” Katy sings. “Is it the way that I praise you? The way that I please you? Or how fast I change my mind And get scared that I might leave you?”
In a recent interview, Katy revealed that the song was a way to describe what being a woman means to her daughter – to whom she dedicates the song. Perry is very pregnant and due any day now.
“That is a hope I have for my future child, is that she doesn’t have any limits on any of her dreams, or what she wants to be, or who she thinks she is,” Perry said. “And, you know, she can change whenever she wants. She doesn’t have to…she can try everything on if she wants; figure out what fits. And so I think that song is important to me and important for her.”
The song was premiered via an acoustic performance that she uploaded hours before its official studio version release. You can watch that below.
Smile is due Aug. 28. Perry is due any moment now.
