We Ran To Find Katy Perry's Disco Ball To Listen To Her New Song And This Is Our Story

True life: Music from a disco ball is good.

Posted on

This morning at exactly 10:10am ET, Katy Perry tweeted this sort of cryptic pink map with some disco balls in certain cities. She told us to bring our headphones.

Leave your bubble (and bring your headphones):

Upon zooming in on the pink map, we found that one of the hidden disco balls was in Brooklyn, NY — a quick subway ride away from the BuzzFeed offices, where several Katy Perry fans hide out.

It was then that we decided to run, not walk, to find the disco ball we were seeking. Legend has it that if you find the disco ball you can listen to 90 seconds of her new song "Chained to the Rhythm." (P.S. This wasn't a legend, those were the facts.) SO OFF WE WENT.


We were the only people there for a while, until Katy Cat Jake showed up. He had traveled all the way from the Upper West Side. We gave him his alone time to really take in the song.

P.S. There were people who were way smarter than us at other disco balls and brought along SPEAKERS. Genius. So now you can hear what we heard too. ENJOY.
