Katy Perrys not my favorite. Her parents though gave my friend a bunch of $$ once (he is an accordian player/busker in gettysburg pa)

kinda terrified of her not being able to work with dr luke again but we should get at least 1 good single

so wait is bonnie mckee's entire career a way to keep dr. luke dr. luking (although I know there've been pushes for it to exist at least a year prior)

lol @ the all lower-case title for a thread that's probably going to wind up with 18,000 posts. It's called "presentation," markers!

her not being able to work with dr luke again is probably a good thing since most of his songs lately have been ass (and usually not doing well on the charts, which i guess would matter for someone like katy)

I'm actually surprised that Bonnie McKee's American Girl wasn't co-written or produced by Dr Luke.

I don't know how I'll feel in two years about it. I originally thought "Firework" was one of the dumbest things I ever laid ears on, and now I love it unconditionally.

despite despising all but like 3 of katy perry's singles i'm still somehow terrified of what's gonna come of this album w/ no dr luke involvement

I now wish i'd been louder 6 months ago when predicting that her next single would incorporate elements of civil war wave. I haven't heard the song yet, but just from reading the last page of posts... in writing it's predictable as hell.

ah, sensitive as always

katherine, Saturday, 10 August 2013 20:23 (three years ago) Permalink

As a songwriter she has this obnoxious habit of using cliched metaphors and turns of phrases in lieu of more specific lyrical details and this song might be the worst offender in her catalog on this front: bite my tongue, rock the boat, brush off the dust, eye of the tiger, float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, zero to hero.

she seems the kind of person who would think the stock phrases on a motivational poster are actually really poignant.

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 9 May 2017 22:21 (two weeks ago) Permalink

This really was an odd choice for a single but I did think it would still do fairly well based on her name alone. I still think Chained To The Rhythm is a great song.

kitchen person, Tuesday, 9 May 2017 22:27 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Love the music, but the vocals and lyric are TERRIBLE (and I really liked "Chained to the Rhythm" overall). The Migo rap is the best sounding vocal part.

idk i dont follow her shit, i usually dont like her songs and then sometimes i do (teenage dream or w/e), this seems like a perfectly good summer record to me, but then im not invested in katy perry as a 'star'

maybe her star is falling cuz its the woke era or something, i dont really get what the problem would be w/ this single though, shit is catchy as hell

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Wednesday, 10 May 2017 03:37 (two weeks ago) Permalink

for comparison, "chained to the rhythm" debuted at #4. "bon appetit" debuted at #76.

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 10 May 2017 03:37 (two weeks ago) Permalink

i wonder if its similar to that effect w/ albums where people judge your single off the success of the last one

Katy Perry, a real dark horse on the Billboard charts.... not

skip, Wednesday, 10 May 2017 03:39 (two weeks ago) Permalink

the song is good enough imo that it feels like momentum would *really* have to be moving against her career in general for that not to do something

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Wednesday, 10 May 2017 03:40 (two weeks ago) Permalink

that's possible, but "chained to the rhythm" was only a flop in the context of katy perry insofar as it didn't hit #1 and stay there for weeks. it did fine otherwise tho.

another aspect is that they're going w/ the old school model of choosing specific pre-release singles w/ the album still months away, whereas i.e. bruno mars had a little trouble finding a second single after "24k magic" but the album was timed to where they were able to look at streaming data while "24k magic" was still on the charts, which led to the elevation of "that's what i like" as a people's choice pick that the label eventually got behind

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 10 May 2017 03:43 (two weeks ago) Permalink

"that's possible" is re the idea that this single is flopping bcuz "chained to the rhythm" also underperformed

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 10 May 2017 03:44 (two weeks ago) Permalink

i mean the obvious difference is: chained to the rhythm is a bad song, and this is not

many songs just take time to break regardless of who made them, 'thats what i like' was also not a hit out the gate even if it was a streaming fav

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Wednesday, 10 May 2017 03:46 (two weeks ago) Permalink

well, i disagree entirely that the song is any good... it struck me immediately as really generic from the beat to the concept, and the hook is muted, doesn't grab you at all. i'm stunned it's something that came from max martin frankly.

it's a retread of this song off her last album which is like 100 times better

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 10 May 2017 03:48 (two weeks ago) Permalink

there's no real history as far as i remember of a pre-album katy perry single taking any time whatsoever to climb the charts, but maybe this will be the one

it's currently #142 on itunes, which is two spots behind "slippery"

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 10 May 2017 03:51 (two weeks ago) Permalink

i dont hear the similarity between those two songs at all! walking on air is straight edm

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Wednesday, 10 May 2017 04:37 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I typically don't care about Katy Perry's chart success or failures all that much, but I guess I'm maybe 1% curious to see if this is her first album without a #1 or if she'll continue the streak.

billstevejim, Wednesday, 10 May 2017 04:51 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I can't see her getting a number 1, particularly given the general scarcity of women in the upper echelons of the charts at the moment who aren't featured vocalists - see Maura's post on this in the New Jersey thread

monotony, Wednesday, 10 May 2017 05:38 (two weeks ago) Permalink

her lead single spent two weeks in the top 10 -- its first two weeks. it likely would have spent zero weeks in the top 10 had she not performed on the grammys broadcast the week it dropped. as j0rdan pointed out this new one is plummeting at an alarming rate on itunes (where it never even cracked the top 10) + furthermore has paltry stats on the streaming services (where sleeper hits tend to show their early promise), is not doing the usual katy perry thing at radio. it's almost certain she will not be getting another number one hit this time around. it seems like a very real possibility that the album won't go #1 either.

Idk, I like this song. It's birthday but with black guys and while white radio might have a problem with that, I don't. There's obviously some sort of KP backlash going on atm but I generally appreciate her shameless persona. The main problem w Chained was the skip marley iz MORPHEUS part. She should have fed him to the lions.

new song "swish swish" w/ nicki is surprisingly good, her last good single since... "dark horse" or "birthday" maybe?

"swish swish" isn't great... like "bon appetit" the concept quickly gets pretty strained. can't imagine it being popular either. this album is sort of fascinating.
