They going strong after facing some initial hiccups, which has made both Perry and Mayer, 35, more open about the relationship. They collaborated on their first-ever duet "Who You Love," just one week earlier.

"When you first read the reports about (the duet), you'll think that it's a gimmick... I love a good challenge and that's certainly one," he said in a recent interview with Billboard magazine.

"But the hope is you hear it once because of the curiosity and then you go, 'Wow, I really like that. I could find a place for hearing that a lot more'. It's a really fun opportunity for her to write, like, her answer to that. So, you get these two sides to this relationship that are brutally honest," Mayer said. The pair confessed their feelings for one another in the duet and revealed how they tried not to get too involved initially.

Mayer and Perry first dating shortly after she finalised her divorce from ex Russell Brand in February 2012 but the musical duo decided to call off their relationship in March 2013, only to reconcile two months later.

"He pulled away. That was a big hello for me. I realized I could lose the person I loved and I had to deal with some things, issues I think a lot of women have. You can be strong in one aspect of your life but submissive in another," Perry said in the September issue of ELLE UK.
