The A.V. Club has posted a review of Katy Perry’s “Never Really Over.” Buy/Stream the song here and watch the video here.

The Zedd-produced “Never Really Over” puts Perry right back in earworm territory, the story of a post-romance infatuation that refuses to die. Besides an impressive showcase for Perry’s powerful pop vocals, the appeal mainly lies in these rushed together post-chorus lines: “Just because it’s over doesn’t mean it’s really over/And if I think it over, maybe you’ll be coming over again/And I’ll have to get over you all over again,” boasting the kind of addictive hook songwriters dream of. Y’know, maybe we should give it another listen just to make sure.
