"Part of Me" is a song by American recording
artist Katy Perry, released as the lead single from the re-release edition of her second studio album, Teenage Dream, titled Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection (2012). The song was written by Perry and Bonnie McKee, while the song's production and additional writing was done by Dr. Luke, Max Martin and Cirkut. The song was not included on the standard edition of Teenage Dream because Perry felt that the song did not fit the composition of the album. In late 2010, the entire demo of the song leaked online, with critics speculating that the lyrics were directed to the singer's ex-boyfriend Travis McCoy. "Part of Me" was re-worked and officially released on February 13, 2012, through Capitol Records. The artwork for the song was done by photographer Mary Ellen Matthews.
Musically, "Part of Me" draws influences from several genres, including dance-pop and pop rock; reviewers compared it to Jessie J's "Domino" (2011) and Perry's previous singles "Firework" (2010) and "California Gurls" (2010). The composition infuses elements from house music, while its lyrics allude to feeling empowered after a dramatic break-up. The song received mixed to positive reviews from contemporary music critics, who praised the song's production, while some criticized Perry's vocals. Critics and media alike theorized that the lyrics were addressing Perry's divorce to Russell Brand. The singer later denied such allegations, stating that it was written in early 2010.

"Well, I actually had the idea, I wrote the story about what it is actually like to be in the Service, and it does take a lot of physical strength, but now that I've been through it – and even just for the three days I was there, [it's] a lot of mental strength. We used only Marines, no actors or actresses. We used all of the Marine's equipment and they were so lovely to us, I always have fun even though it's a lot of work. Even though I was sore and exhausted, I was so educated on people in the service, who I've always respected but the stuff they go through, and the kind of loyalty they posses, it's very communal, and community. Not to sound weird, but it seems like the heart of America. Seriously, the heart.
