The couple who sings together, smolders together.
At least that’s how it looks for Katy Perry and John Mayer. The two unveiled the cover art for their duet “Who You Love” from Mayer’s recent album Paradise Valley, showing them posing seductively in a black-and-white photo. Perry is draped across the couch, gazing at the camera from behind Mayer, who sits on the floor in the foreground strumming his guitar.
“‘Who You Love’ is here,” Mayer tweeted with the photo Tuesday. “Proud of this song, proud of this artwork, proud of this girl.”
Of course, Mayer’s not one to shy away from crooning sweet melodies with his Celebrity Ladyfriends. Remember 2010’s “Half of My Heart” with Taylor Swift? Swift did, and (allegedly!) chronicled their doomed relationship with the takedown “Dear John.”
Perry, on the other hand, told EW that her beau inspired the soaring love ballad “Unconditionally,” her second single off Prism. “It’s just a simple message about loving someone and accepting them,” she said. “You don’t have to be so self-conscious, you don’t have to fear, because essentially, everybody has their stuff.”
It certainly seems that way — a black-and-white photo means a black-and-white relationship in pop star world, right? In the meantime, if you need a refresher, listen to their duet below:
What do you think of the art, readers? Do you love “Who You Love”?
