Single Review: This Is How We Do by Katy Perry

The fifth official single from Katy Perry's Prism, "This Is How We Do," is the most  laid back of the bunch, but then again it is a song about hanging out and partying. While there are better tracks on the album that deserve the single treatment (like "Walking on Air" and "International Smile"), late summer is a logical time to deliver "This Is How We Do." It's filled with great lyrical jokes (ie "sucking real bad at Mariah Carey-oke") and Perry sounds like she's having a good time performing the tune. In fact, it's one of the more subtle tracks in her catalog because its pop smarts are masked by a chilled out sound. Though it may not go full power-pop on the listener like Perry's other party tunes ("Last Friday Night," "I Kissed a Girl") I would be surprised if you aren't humming it after a listen or two.
