Light as a Feather

Songfacts®:

  • This stuttering song finds Katy imploring a lover to give in to the music and "for once go wild." The Philadelphia producer Diplo produced the cut whilst Australian rapper Iggy Azalea also lent a hand.
  • Speaking with Digital Spy, Iggy Azalea said the "collaboration was crazy." She added: "I was like, 'What is this all about?!', but I love it, even if I don't understand what the song is about. She was really sweet and sent me a bottle of Dom Pérignon. I don't drink, but now when people come over they'll think I'm rich!"
  • The American singer-songwriter Norah Jones recorded a song with the same title for her 2009 The Fall album on which she declares, "All for the better. Worst for the way. We're light as a feather. Got you and I together."
