The song was released as the second single from the album on October 16, 2013. “Unconditionally” became a moderate worldwide success commercially, charting within the top twenty and top thirty of fourteen countries worldwide, including number 14 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It also became Perry’s thirteenth Top 10 single on the Billboard Pop Songs chart.

“It’s a love song and it’s different from ‘Roar’ - it’s not eighth-notey,” said Perry. “I think it’s a universal love song that everyone’s going to be able to relate to no matter the age, no matter male or female. It’s my favorite song off the record.”

Perry spoke about the song’s meaning during an interview with KIIS FM. She explained: “Not only is it about those different varieties of loves, it’s about when you are in love with someone and there’s full acceptance. The highs and the lows. All the flaws. The zits. The smells. The whole gamet, you know? Sometimes I remember being scared to be accepted in relationships and I know that everybody else goes through that and, ‘Will they love my true self? Will they love all the things that I do when nobody’s looking?”

Perry added: “You know because we are weirdoes. We pick our nose and we make disgusting noises with our body and we’re not always the most presentable things but someone’s gotta love us and it’s about that unconditional love. It’s about that high, almost spiritual type of love.”
