John Mayer and Katy Perry are more than just boyfriend and girlfriend – they’re musical collaborators.
The on again, off again lovebirds’ new duet, “Who You Love,” made its way onto the Internet on Monday. The soft ballad is a little bit country and little bit rock ‘n roll and, well, a little bit sappy.
The sleepy track is heavy on Mayer’s signature bluesy guitar, as well as the lyrics “you love who you love.” (He says that a lot.)
Perry brings in her musical flair mid-track. Her verse includes the tender words, “My boy ain’t the one that I saw coming/ And some have said his heart’s too hard to hold/ And it takes a little time but you should see him when he shines/ Cause you never wanna let the feeling go.”
It’s a sweet little ditty.
Katy Perry is already having a huge week. She released her first single off her upcoming album, PRISM (after it was leaked…), and it was just announced that she will be hitting the stage at the 2013 MTV VMAs.
Listen to her song with boyfriend John Mayer, below. Lyrics for the ballad are now available on Directlyrics.
KATY PERRY tweeted “happy birthday cutie” to boyfriend JOHN MAYER on Wednesday… and it was really adorable!
There was a time when all we ever heard about Katy and John‘s relationship was how often they split up and got back together. But after over a year of on-and-off dating, it looks like things have finally been going really well in recent months, with the couple getting more and more adorable by the minute-wearing matching outfits, dedicating songs to each other, and recording romantic duets (well, just one so far).
To add to the adorableness, Katy wrote the following tweet for John‘s 36th birthday on October 16:
Are Katy Perry and John Mayer making beautiful musical together?
According to Rolling Stone, the on again, off again pair will indeed duet on John’s upcoming album, Paradise Valley.
Their song is called “Who You Love” and is described as a “country-tinged mid-tempo track.” Hmm, the same can be said for Mayer’s “Half Of My Heart” collaboration with alleged former flame Taylor Swift. Just keeping it real, guys.
Paradise Valley is slated for release on August 20th, while Perry’s next album, PRISM, will come out October 22nd. Katy recently told E! News that John will not appear on her CD. Way to return the favor, Mayer.
Perhaps Katy’s musical partnership with John will give us a little taste of that bad ass new sound she’s been teasing. And let’s hope it’s better than previous couple collabos. (Ahem, Seal and Heidi Klum.)
John Mayer may not have the most spotless reputation when it comes to women, but he’s treating Katy Perry like a princess!
After the two had a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner at Vincenti’s in El Lay, we spotted the Wide Awake singer wearing a conspicuously shiny ring on her finger and immediately went into a tizzy thinking John had proposed!
Well, we finally have confirmation the one-of-a-kind ring was created by a Santa Barbara-based jeweler named Daniel Gibbings AND John picked it out himself for his lady love, however, a source close to the couple says they’re not engaged.
So for now, it looks like our Kandy Kween only has John’s heart, just not to have and to hold for long as they both shall live.

And we thought John Mayer and Katy Perry were the real deal!!!
While John was busy canoodling with Girls beauty Allison Williams just days ago, it looks like Katy could be moving on and into the arms of Muse’s Dominic Howard!
The drummer and Wide Awake singer double-dated with BFF Kate Hudson and her hubby Matt Bellamy while they munched on some sea creatures at trendy Pink Taco this weekend.
An eyewitness observed:
“They were all over each other. I was shocked to see her acting so affectionate with another rock star because I thought she was dating John Mayer. Katy had her arms around Dominic, and they were facing each other, bodies touching. He had his eyes on her all night. Katy loved all the attention.”
They were just too in love LAST WEEK for us to give up on the Katy-John love saga this fast!!!
Katy already digested her seafood dinner from over the weekend, but we can still smell something fishy!
