After a long and much needed break, John Mayer is back on the music scene with a new album and full length tour!
In various interviews John has expressed his gratitude and love for Ms. Katy Perry who happened to help him get through a lot during the time he was off from singing. Mayer suffered from a throat conditioned called Granuloma, which attacked his vocal chords. In 2011 the singer had to cancel his tour due to the illness which meant he would be off from singing for a while. It has been a long two years, and finally John got his singing ability back and got back on tour.
If you didn’t already know, John and Katy have been dating for quite some time now and John dedicates his recovery to her being that she helped him get through it. Mayer even dedicated a song to Katy on one of his previous stops on his tour.
Just yesterday we were hit with some big news! John and Katy have released a duet!!! Yes, you heard me, a DUET! Not only were people excited to hear new music from John, but Katy Cats were excited as ever, being that she hasn’t released new music in a while. The song is entitled, “Who You Love” and is a slow song about how you can’t choose who you love and it’s just the way it is. Certain lyrics that stand out go, “My girl, she ain’t the one that I saw coming, And sometimes I don’t know which way to go, And I tried to run before, But I’m not running anymore, Cause I’ve fought against it hard enough to know, That you love, who you love”. This expresses John’s love for Katy because in the beginning of their relationship it was rocky but like John says in the song, you love who you love and you can’t help it!
When Katy comes in her part starts off with the lyrics going like this, “My boy, he ain’t the one that I saw coming, And some have said his heart’s too hot to hold, And it takes a little time, But you should see him when he shines, Cause you never wanna let that feeling go, When you love, who you love”. It is pretty evident that the song is about each others love for one another and the amount of strain it was on both of their lives. The fact that the couple was able to go through so much and still be together shows just how much they do love each other. The song is also important to show people that it doesn’t matter if the person you love is the same sex, or opposite sex because you can’t help who you fall in love with.
All in all, the song is absolutely beautiful and the two incredibly talented artists put together a heart warming duet. In recent news, the couple is still together and are clearly absolutely in love. Katy has just recently released a new song entitled, “ROAR” so be sure to check it out on iTunes and take a listen! John is still on tour and will be until October 26th, 2013.
