Katy Perry Cuts Skip Marley Loose For A “Chained To The Rhythm” Remix Featuring Lil Yachty

Katy Perry Cuts Skip Marley Loose For A Chained To The Rhythm Remix Featuring Lil YachtyKaty Perry’s new single is getting a makeover. “Chained To The Rhythm” dropped last month and was quickly followed up by a music video and a couple of live performances. Now, the track has a brand new remix that swaps out Skip Marley’s featured verse for some bars from Lil Yachty.

The unexpected duo teamed up for a much more low-key version of the track with a lot of Autotune for Lil Yachty’s parts. Full of ethereal atmosphere and long, slow echoes, the remix doesn’t technically slow down “Chained To The Rhythm,” but it does feel a little bit fatigued.

Once Again, Katy Perry’s Spotlight Is Stolen By A Backup Dancer

Once Again, Katy Perry's Spotlight Is Stolen By A Backup Dancer featureRemember when left shark stole the show during Katy Perry’s Super Bowl Halftime Show performance? Well, it’s happened again. Another backup dancer has been the focus of one of Katy’s major performances. This time, the guilty party wasn’t a dancing shark–it was a falling house.

Katy and Skip Marley were just wrapping a politically charged performance of their track “Chained To The Rhythm” when the house went down. Katy started solo on stage with rows of white houses for the song. As the song progressed, it was revealed that each house contained a performer who danced along to the infectious tune.

Katy and Skip were center stage, flanked by giant skeleton puppets dressed to look like President Donald Trump and the U.K.’s Prime Minister Theresa May, when one of the houses demolished itself. It was apparently hard to see from inside the homes’ frosted windows, as one of the dancers walked right off the stage and hit a barricade along the way to the floor.

Check out a video of Katy and Skip’s performance below. Keep a sharp eye out on the right side of the screen around the 3:50 mark for the falling house.

Katy Perry Burns Down The White House At The GRAMMYs

Katy Perry Tears Breaks Down Some Fences On-Stage At The GRAMMYs featureKaty Perry got a special intro from Taylor Swift’s pal’s Little Big Town for the 2017 GRAMMYs. The subtle olive branch was the perfect tone-setter for Katy’s new single “Chained to the Rhythm,” which is a low-key political anthem.

Katy’s political side-eye carried through her performance, as she and Skip Marley performed the new single around a white house surrounded by a fence. After the house and fence get torn down, Katy and Skip joined hands in front of a projection of the U.S. Constitution.

Katy Perry Is “Chained To The Rhythm” On Latest Release

Katy Perry Is Chained To The Rhythm With A Hamster And Bob Marley's Grandson featureFans no longer need to find a disco ball to hear Katy Perry’s new single. Katy has released a lyric video for “Chained to the Rhythm,” a dance anthem with some political undertones. The lyric video stars a hamster in a miniature house complete with a fully functional kitchen. It also features Skip Marley, grandson of legendary reggae artist Bob Marley.

The song has a pop sound layered over a disco-infused dance hall beat. The lyrics could work in a club or at a protest. With lines like “We think we’re free” and “So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble,” the track is a subtle nod towards Katy’s own call for artists to get back to work after many were disappointed by recent political outcomes.

See the lyric video for the new track and tweets from Katy and Skip celebrating the release below.
