In 2007, Alqaisi was signed with Capitol Records--this is where he met Perry, whom was also signed with the label.

In 2008, Perry “Kissed A Girl” and she liked it; that same year, Alqaisi released Aliens & Rainbows--both under Capitol Records. Perry, then, developed a professional working relationship with the 29-year-old Alqaisi. According to the Daily Digest News, Alqaisi states:

Her instincts are really on point”

Ferras also goes on to say,

She is very blunt and doesn’t sugar-coat things, which I appreciate. Also, she gave me the freedom to do what I wanted musically and was a natural partner.”

Perry’s new label, Metamorphosis Music, is a subsidiary of Capitol Records.

Alqaisi will be opening for Perry’s North American tour, “Prismatic World Tour." The tour is scheduled to kick off in Raleigh, North Carolina on June 22.
