Katy Perry takes to the Hawaiian roads in ‘Harleys in Hawaii’

Katy Perry is taking a ride on the wild side…well kind of.

On Wednesday (Oct. 16), the California girl unveiled the music video for her latest single “Harley in Hawaii.” Staying true to the name of the track, the pop star is seen riding around the road of Hawaii on a motorcycle flanked by two companions.

The group ends up at a random bar for some drinks when a random fight breaks out. Instead of getting involves, Perry is seen chuckling and taking a sip of her drink before heading to the small stage to sing some karaoke.

The rest of the clip features the singer chilling on the beach with her love interest (“Teenage Dreams” vibes anyone?) and hanging out with her girlfriends in a hotel room with a stripper pole, hula hoops, and Perry’s favorite snack, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.

So, where did the inspiration for the song come from?

A Hawaiian getaway to the magical string of islands.

“What do you get when you rent a motorcycle for a weekend with your boyfriend in Hawaii? A love song, of course,” Perry posted on Twitter.

The music video was directed by Barcelona-based studio Manson. Watch the clip above.

The track was co-written by Perry, Charlie Puth, Johan Carlsson, and Jacob Kasher. If the lineup looks familiar, it’s because all four co-wrote Perry’s previously released single, “Small Talk.”

“Harleys in Hawaii” is the third “standalone” single Perry has released in 2019. Earlier this year, the singer released the dog competition-centric music video for “Small Talk,” her flower child-inspired clip for “Never Really Over,” and “365” her creepy robot love story with Zedd.

No word on whether these songs will be featured on her still-not-confirmed sixth studio album. Perry’s last full-length album was 2017’s Witness.
