Katy Perry and boyfriend John Mayer appeared on Good Morning America on Tuesday to debut their music video for “Who You Love,” which is off of Mayer’s Paradise Valley album.
Before their debuted the music video though, they dished on how the song came to fruition and even dished about what they did on their first date.
"I had this little chorus for years and it was 'You love, who you love.' I thought that was always going to be a great thing someday. And then it came out again and sometimes you have to play stuff for people; it's really nice to have an unbiased ear," Mayer explained, adding his producer suggested he ask his girlfriend to sing it with him, MTV News reports.
Mayer admits his first thought was to say no, but “the more I thought about just the music part of it, it made sense. Even if I didn't know Katy, it would have made perfect sense.”
"If the song is great, you're sort of in a bubble of authenticity," he added. "It's a pretty big moving target to be a couple and have a song, but I think there's an authenticity to it."
Perry said they went out to dinner for their first date, just “like a regular couple.”
