Katy Perry fans have been gearing up for months for her highly anticipated sixth studio album and now the title has finally been revealed.

The album is titled 143, a name that has a special hidden message behind it.

"I set out to create a bold, exuberant, celebratory dance-pop album with the symbolic 143 numerical expression of love as a throughline message," Perry said in a press release about the album.

143 is a common text code that originated in the '90s when people used the numbers to represent "I love you" on pagers and early cell phones.
