While we’re big fans of Katy Perry’s hit single, “The One That Got Away,” the recently leaked remix featuring B.o.B is disjointed, awkward and shoddily thrown together. Perry currently shares the record with King of Pop, Michael Jackson, for most No. 1 hits from one album and is in the running to surpass MJ himself. However, if this remix was meant to propel “The One That Got Away” from No. 4 to the top of the charts, I hope they have a plan B. The B.o.B collab is already hitting US radio waves and has received poor fan reaction. Luckily, Perry’s momentum in the industry will probably be enough to carry the single to No. 1, regardless of this mediocre version. Although Perry has collabed with rappers in previous work, Missy Elliot on “Last Friday Night” and Kanye West on “E.T,” this “Got Away” remix not only disappoints but the cheesy lyrical input by B.o.B take away from the emotional impact of the original. Back to the drawing board please!
