Though the internet at large may have jumped the gun by leaking Katy Perry‘s new single “Roar” over the weekend, today (August 12) we still get the promised premiere. And it’s a lyric video. And it’s done with emojis. Maybe she got inspiration from Aziz Ansari when he did an all emoji version of “Ni**as In Paris.” Either way it’s entirely fitting and you can watch the text conversation play out in the video above.

The stadium-sized power anthem — rumored to be produced by her long-time production team Dr. Luke and Max Martin — is the first single off of Katy Perry’s forthcoming and “darker” album Prism. If you recall, that album was announced on a gold tractor-trailer, which, as NME reports was just struck by a drunk driver over the weekend. Perry tweeted:

We wish the enormous gold promotional truck a swift and safe recovery.

Prism is out October 22 on Capital Records.
