Katy Perry and John Mayer have had a rocky relationship, but all seems to be swell on their new collaboration.
Perry, who released a new song of her own on Monday, joins Mayer on a mellow track called "Who You Love" from the singer songwriter's new album, "Paradise Valley."
The single is more classic, guitar-strumming Mayer than Perry's usual bombastic pop sound, but it's fun to hear her vocals shine on a more relaxed tune.
And given the track's lyrics, many are guessing that these paired off songbirds are singing to each other.
"You can't make yourself stop dreaming who you're dreaming of," Mayer croons during the chorus. "If it's who you love, then it's who you love."
"My boy ain't the one that I saw coming,'" Perry responds. "Some have said his heart's too hard to hold. It takes a little time, but you see him when he shines, 'cause you'll never want to let the feeling go."
Perry and Mayer have had an on-and-off-again relationship since last summer, and have appeared to recently reunite after breaking up in the spring. In July, Mayer dedicated a song to "his Katy," who's admitted that she fell hard for the 35-year-old musician.
The pop star, 28, told SiriusXM Radio that she wrote it with Mayer, and that the little giggle that she has at the end is "a little love giggle. I think I was just so happy. I love that song. ... You're catching the real moment, there."
Mayer's "Paradise Valley," slated for an August 20 release, is currently streaming in its entirety on iTunes. Perry, meanwhile, is preparing to perform her latest release, "Roar," at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 25.
