Katy Perry’s 2019 song “Harleys in Hawaii” is having a resurgence, thanks to TikTok.
A slowed-down version of the track — specifically, the part where Katy sings “you and I” and holds the last note — is being used to soundtrack various videos on the platform.
It’s even bumped the song’s sales and streaming in the U.K., according to Official Charts Company. It’s currently Katy’s most popular track on Spotify.
Charlie Puth, who co-wrote the song, also acknowledged the trend, duetting with one of the TikTok videos with the caption, “Why do all of these songs I made years ago keep blowing up all of the sudden?”
He added, “I mean I’ll take it!!”
