Hear that? It's Katy Perry's 'Roar'

Katy Perry isn't letting a dinged promotional semi or a leaked single silence her "Roar."

The pop star's latest single arrived online ahead of its August 12 release date, adding a bit of frustration to a weekend that kicked off with an accident.

Perry has been promoting her upcoming album, "Prism," with a gold semi-truck, but on Friday it got a little banged up.

And while she was managing that speed bump, "Roar" made its way to her fans' ears on Sunday.

"Looks like there's a tiger on the loose!!!" Perry tweeted. "Make sure you catch it @iTunesMusic at midnight EDT TONIGHT!"

On Monday, the singer shared a lyrics video with her Twitter followers, giving insight into the upbeat pop song's message of perseverance.


"You held me down, but I got up, already brushing off the dust," Perry sings. "Get ready 'cause I've had enough. I see it all, I see it now. I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire. 'Cause I am a champion, and you're gonna hear me roar louder than a lion."

MTV calls "Roar" Perry's "most purposeful single to date," and "the empowerment anthem to end all empowerment anthems. ... She's back, bolder and badder than ever."

We have to say we agree - take a listen above and let us know what you think.

    I cant watch the video because im not in the USA. Is CNN xenophobic? Also KAty Perry looks totally over made-up in that picture above, @peace – I would prefer the blue wig version than this "clean and trashy" with too much foundation on her face!

      Hey MAP! The only thing I can say is, she needs bangs, too much forehead. Other than that, I think she looks good. I'm on a ph, so I can't say anything about the foundation. Lol!

      I think she could use a good shampoop with corn nibblet conditioner. It will give her hair a lovely shine.

      Exactly who is her fan base? I stopped listening to music like this back when I was a tween. I agree, Peace, bangs would probably help. Way too much forehead. It distracts from her boobs hanging out. lol...

    "MTV calls "Roar" Perry's "most purposeful single to date," and "the empowerment anthem to end all empowerment anthems. ..." Let's hope to God that's true, MTV, because we're going to hold you to this statement and hold you accountable if another liberal feminazi anthem hits the airwaves.

    I almost didn't recognize her w/o the weird colors in her hair. That's a good look for her, hope she keeps it.
