American singer and songwriter Katy Perry wears a Vietnamese ao dai in a music collaboration with record producer Zedd.

Perry and Zedd have teamed up for a new song called "365." The single has been released with a music video directed by Warren Fu. In the video, the singer wears a green ao dai with golden polka dots while lying in bed, face make up like a doll.

The breezy love song has Perry singing about wanting love to be on her mind all the time. She portrays a programmed robot attempting to seduce Zedd in the futuristic clip. The music video garnered 4.4 million views in one day.

This is not the first time Katy has showed an inclination for clothing from Vietnam. She has worn six costumes designed by the Vietnamese fashion designer Nguyen Cong Tri so far, three of them in her "Witness" world tour in 2017. Perry also wore a design from another Vietnamese designer, Thai Nguyen in 2017.

Nguyen Cong Tri launched his Autumn and Winter 2019 collection at New York Fashion week on February 11 and received praises from media outlets.

"365" is their first song of 2019 for Zedd and Katy Perry. Zedd recently celebrated a few Grammy nominations for his song "The Middle," and Perry performed at the ceremony.
