Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg get together to record a song in what seems to be a direct response to Jay-z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind.” The song “California Gurls” is more a light hearted song and doesnt really hold a candle to Jay’s version but its a great song for summer parties.
It’s so great that ‘Empire State of Mind’ is huge and that everyone has the New York song, but what the f**k? What about LA? What about California?. It’s been a minute since we had a California song and especially from a girl’s perspective. We took the references of Prince, which is always a great reference, and some of the ’90s, almost house music references.
