Someone at Katy Perry’s label (or perhaps the unlucky-in-Grammy girl herself) apparently felt it necessary to tack a couple raps by Kanye West onto the singer’s fourth Teenage Dream single “E.T.” As we saw yesterday, the Platinum-selling pair have been busy shooting the intergalactic Max Martin/Dr. Luke-produced jam‘s music video. Now hear the souped-up version of “E.T.” with Kanye West in the mix below.
“I got a dirty mind, I got filthy ways / I’m trying to bathe my egg in your milky way,” sleazy Kanye warns in the intro to “E.T.” Later in the song, he adds, “Tell me what’s next, alien sex? I’m-a disrobe you, then I’m-a probe you.”
Thanks for that, Kanye. We’ll be over there barfing in our space suits.[wpaudio url="http://cdn.idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Katy-Perry-feat-Kanye-West-ET.mp3" text="Katy Perry feat. Kanye West - E.T." dl="0"]
So far Perry has landed her first three singles off her latest album—”California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream” and “Firework”—at the top of the Billboard Hot 100. So it’s somewhat confusing why anyone felt it necessary to throw a rap onto what is sure to be her latest Top 10 single.
Ultimately, Kanye doesn’t really add anything here. And he’s certainly done far better.
Do you think “E.T.” needed a rap for its single mix?
