Riff: Katy Perry – “Unconditionally”

Oct 23, 2013

All your insecurities/All the dirty laundry/Never made me blink one time

from Unconditionally lyrics by Katy Perry

Free of the sugary sweetness which made Prism‘s other stadium-sized stomper, “Roar,” a little difficult to swallow, Perry plays it completely straight here as she vows to love her man whatever his emotional baggage may be over a hypnotic wave of tumbling percussion; [LISTEN].
