Teenage Dream is the third studio album by sexy popper Katy Perry. The album's lead single "California Gurls" featuring Snoop Dogg is already an international smash and this full-length LP should be no different. Perry worked with numerous artists and producers including Greg Wells, Rivers Cuomo, Thaddis "Kuk" Harrell, The-Dream, and Christopher "Tricky" Stewart. If you are in the mood for power-pop with a slick twist, Teenage Dream is most definitely for you.
