American singer-songwriter Katy Perry has recorded songs for four studio albums, some of which were collaborations with others. At 15, Perry signed a record deal with Red Hill Records and recorded a gospel album entitled Katy Hudson in 2000. The album was released March 6, 2001. However the record company closed down later that year.[1] After two other unsuccessful contracts, the singer signed a fourth with Capitol Records in 2007, a division of record label Virgin.[2]

Once signed with Capitol, Perry began recording sessions for her second studio album One of the Boys, which was released on June 17, 2008.[3] She collaborated with Dr. Luke and Max Martin on the lead single "I Kissed a Girl" and the second single "Hot n Cold".[4] The former peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, while the latter peaked at number three.[5] Perry co-wrote "Lost" and "A Cup of Coffee" with Ted Bruner, and shared writing credits with Greg Wells on the tracks "Ur So Gay" and "Fingerprints". The third single, "Thinking of You", was one of three songs written solely by the singer, including "One of the Boys" and "Mannequin".[4] The songs "I Do Not Hook Up" and "Long Shot" were written during the five years Perry worked on One of the Boys, but they did not make the final cut and were later recorded for Kelly Clarkson's album All I Ever Wanted (2009).[6][7] In July 2009, she appeared as a guest vocalist on 3OH!3's song "Starstrukk", included on the band's album Want.[8] In February 2010, she also duetted with Timbaland on the song "If We Ever Meet Again", included on his album Shock Value II.[9]

Perry began recording sessions for her third studio album, Teenage Dream, in October 2009.[10] The album was released on August 24, 2010.[11] The singer reunited with Dr. Luke and Martin for the majority of the album. Together, along with various other co-writers, they wrote "California Gurls", "Teenage Dream", "E.T.", "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)", and "The One That Got Away". "Firework" was co-written by Perry with Ester Dean, Sandy Vee, and Mikkel S. Eriksen and Tor Erik Hermansen of Norwegian production team Stargate. Perry, Dean, and Stargate also shared writing credits for the song "Peacock". She collaborated with Monte Neuble and Christopher "Tricky" Stewart on "Circle the Drain" and "Who Am I Living For?"[12] In March 2012, the singer re-released Teenage Dream as Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, which includes remixes of songs from the standard version of the album released in August 2010.[13] It features new songs "Dressin' Up" and the single releases "Part of Me" and "Wide Awake".[14] Perry then began recording her fourth studio album, Prism, in November 2012 and finished in July 2013. The album was released on October 18, 2013. The album features the singles "Roar", "Unconditionally", and "Dark Horse".[15]
