[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm] is known for her sugary sweet pop sound, but now she’s taking a turn for the raw and emotional in an acoustic version of her latest single, “The One That Got Away.”
Why now? Well, she’s coming up with every trick known to man in order to get a 6th #1 single from her Teenage Dream album so she can officially beat [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm]‘s record.
And this might be just what Katy needs because even we got a little teary-eyed listening to it!
By stripping down the auto-tune and accompaniment, the heartbreak comes through loud and clear.
Perhaps the song has more meaning to her in light of her recent split from husband Russell Brand?
Take a listen to the song below, but warning, you may want to grab some tissues!
