Summer means trips to the beach or hikes up the mountain, but Katy Perry’s music video for “Changed to the Rhythm” might make you want to go to an amusement park instead. In the video, Perry is seen visiting an amusement park called Oblivia, which has a ’60s theme.
Watch the video below:
The song, part of the singer’s upcoming fifth album, was written by Perry, Sia, and producers Max Martin and Ali Payami, and deals with how everyone has become “wasted zombies” because they’ve been “living in a bubble.” In the music video, Perry is oblivious to what’s happening, until she realizes that everyone around her is doing the same thing.
The song was received well by the public, where it entered the Billboard Top 100 at number four. It is the highest debuting song by a female artist since Adele entered number one in 2015 for “Hello.”
Critics have also praised the song, with E! calling it a “soon-to-be party classic with its easy pulse and disco elements, layered underneath the upbeat veneer, Perry delivers a strong message about awareness and activism—and, according to her, how it’s lacking.”
