Roar - Katy Perry

Speed: 90 bpm

The DJ's Take: My best guess as to where you'll hear this single, besides the radio for the next few weeks - on the soundtrack for a kids' movie about a lion/cat of prey (maybe Hollywood's already thinking of doing a Lion King remake) or in a TV promo for some women's professional sport, especially if it's for a team with a mascot that can roar. I still believe there's hit potential, especially because we're talking Katy Perry here. But it feels more like a female or kids empowerment anthem versus something you can play in a bar or club.

Looks like we do have some key-compatible mashup material here with Girls Around The World, Best You Ever Had, and Let Me Love You. Or slow it down a bit and blend with Started From The Bottom.

Edit: Couple other (and probably better) mashup/mix candidates - Irreplaceable and Love The Way You Lie.
