One highlight from the album? “Who You Love,” a twangy, swoony soft rock midtempo featuring Perry on vocal duties — and far from the powerhouse performance she turns out on “Roar,” she’s all sweet restraint here, complementing Mayer’s honeyed vox nicely and channeling Kelly Clarkson in the best of ways.
No matter how frequently he indulges his douchebaggiest impulses, Mayer remains an excellent songwriter, and the simplicity and elegance of “Who You Love” shines through the production, which feels a little drippy. Then again, so is he.
