The two of the most iconic pop stars are making our quarantine chronicles spicier with their latest music projects that will surely make us our feet
On June 25, The ‘teenage dream’ pop star had set the stage and music world with her daisy-filled projects and Katy Perry might have been literally laying in a bed of “Daisies” for her recently concluded performance during Procter & Gamble and iHeartMedia’s “Can’t Cancel Pride: A COVID-19 Relief Benefit for the LGBTQ+ Community” last night (June 25), but some of her previous chart-topping hits were also played during the performance.
Showcasing her rainbow-filled manicure, Perry touched up her newest single “Daisies” from her upcoming fifth album sporting her creativity that rocked with her neon outfits to spice up the performance. But she rewound through and remixed a few old hits from her catalog for the ultimate Pride dance party, including “I Kissed A Girl,” “Peacock,” “Walking On Air” and “Swish Swish.”
“Lots of things are being cancelled (rightfully so, trust!) but you #CANTCANCELPRIDE and not only that but you can’t cancel dance remixes with some of ya fav songs okur,” she wrote on Instagram yesterday.
Also, Natasha Bedingfield recorded “Together in This” as the end title track for the animated Jungle Beat: The Movie, which was released last June 26 together her accompanying music video with that showcased the message of resilience and power.
Jungle Beat: The Movie also debuted on digital streaming services all over the world today. The animated family-friendly flick features a homesick alien who crashes his spaceship in an African jungle and makes some furry animal friends who have to help him return to his ship before his Space-Conqueror father takes over the planet.
The soundtrack was written by famed songwriter Jonas Myrin, “Together in This” consoles listeners who think they have to tackle adversities and identity on their own but they prefer to disregard due to misunderstanding. YouTube star Anastasia Radzinskaya who is only six years old, choreographed a routine that other folks like Derek Hough and Jungle Beat’s characters follow along to for their socially distanced jubilee. As seen also in the three-minute visual, no one has groove to the beat and dance with the bass alone.
In an exclusive interview with People, Bedingfield said her new single talks about beyond friendship, camaraderie and building connection that is timely relevant with topic during the resurgent Black Lives Matter movement and Pride Month. “We’re all divided right now, but I think that we are finding ways to unite, even if you think about the protests, and I feel like people are finding what’s important to them and uniting on causes that matter,” she told People. “Some people are separated from their families and they’re having to find creative ways to connect with them.”
“I’ve been trying to find ways to keep my child entertained without him being able to play with other kids,” she said to People about her two-and-a-half-year-old son Solomon, who recently underwent multiple surgeries for a brain infection. “So finding movies or TV shows that I know have good messages and the whole family can watch is really something that’s like gold. Right now your kids are getting educated a lot more on screen than probably you would even want, but it’s just necessary.”
