Katy Perry served up sassy new single ‘Bon Appétit’ at the strike of midnight and the expectation was for the masses to eat it up.
It’s early, but it appears folk are proceeding to the table slower than perhaps planned.
As at writing, the Migos assisted cut has yet to enter top 10 of US iTunes. It presently occupies the #15 spot. This despite banners and ample fan-fare.
While it’s far from doom and gloom, especially given Perry’s general strong streaming performance, it does make one wonder.
Because beyond being the tier of act accustomed to instant hits, she’s coming off a lukewarm chart run with preceding single ‘Chained To The Rhythm.’
All of which makes for potentially sweaty palms at Camp Perry.
Still, as the age old adage goes, it’s rarely about how one starts but how they finish. Maybe just maybe it’ll take longer to rise but enjoy sweeter success.
