Katy Perry’s ‘Witness’ Tumbles To #50 On iTunes – One Week After Release

Published: Monday 19th Jun 2017 by Sam

Can Katy Perry catch a break?

The singer’s new album ‘Witness’ may have opened at #1 on this week’s Billboard 200. However, it’s staying power looks virtually non-existent.

It’s been little over a week since the problem-prone LP hit stores and it’s already enroute to the bottom of the iTunes tally.

As at writing the project sits at #50 on the US store:

For what it’s worth, a horde of albums were slashed in price – which explains one aspect of the the drop.

However, it’s worth noting that SZA‘s ‘CTRL’ – which came out the same day – currently sits at #21 amidst all the discounted LPs.

Your thoughts?

    Wow! Feel so bad for Katie! This era just wasn’t good at all. If the first single was POPPIN, that’d be one thing. Atleast it climbed to #4. It just wasn’t a wise first or 2nd single. Also, people not feeling the non-dark hair Katie. This entire era was a mess.

    She picked the wrong singles. If most ppl would listen to it before judging they would see it’s a solid piece of work

      It doesn’t work like that. You have to put out a hit single to motivate people tikis ten to the album. Most people won’t pay to stream or download an album free if there is no hit single.

    This era’s done, but I will give it to Katy Perry for going full tilt to promote this album.

  7. Kareem June 19, 2017

    its actually a good album. one more grown and reflective not so teeny as her previous. All she needs to do now is to use them to create a wonderful show on tour. That where the real test is.

    • Kareem June 19, 2017

      Also she released the songs on youtube so of course her numbers are going to be down. I think she is focusing on the tour that’s to come so she wants everyone to be familiar with the songs. If done right this era can mark a landstone for her in the evolution of her music

    I’m screaming at your choice of picture 😂😩😭

    Pop music is dead.

    • Fancy BISH June 19, 2017

      Naw, it’s just that nobody is really trying to hear new female pop music in their ears lol…the guys are doing great! The streaming kings are Drake, who just made $94 million, King Abel ($92 million) and JB ($83.5 million)…the Canadians are pop’s biggest success story! Katy tried to look like Just One Of The Guys, but nobody was here for her…

  10. FAF June 19, 2017

    That Sza album >>>>>> she showed her ass

  11. @ASAPicon June 19, 2017

  12. not so lit June 19, 2017

    overrated. Glad her days are numbered.

  13. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! June 19, 2017

    I can’t wait for taylor swifts new material.

    • Fancy BISH June 19, 2017

      Taylor Swift’s new album is going to be more melodic, more R&B driven and alot less campy than Flopness….Taylor knows how to use her voice in a composition! She’ll do a million in a week, as usual chile #SwiftSwiftBish

    • FAF June 19, 2017

      Taylor: ya never win when ya play dirty katherine!!!

    • TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! June 19, 2017

      Yes we shall see. Taylor’s album will be the biggest release of the year :):)

    There was a number of missteps. First, it was a bad move to copy Miley Cyrus’ hairstyle; it came across as derivative. Second, she made a big hoopla about “purposeful pop” and then delivered music that engaged with politics and social issues in an extremely inane and superficial manner: “So comfortable, we live in a bubble, a bubble / So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, the trouble.” Come on. Third, she should not have engaged with Taylor Swift AT ALL.

    • Fancy BISH June 19, 2017

      Agreed! Don’t forget that album cover lol…what was she thinking?

  15. Slayriana Grande-Aguilera June 19, 2017

    She has too focused on beefing with Taylor instead of Ma great songs. Oh well.

  16. Theman June 19, 2017

    But iTunes isn’t the main chart. Perhaps her physical sales will keep her afloat. She should discount the album..

  17. Mariah Carey June 19, 2017

    She definitely looks like “one of the boys” dahhhling! She’s just fabulous for a throwback… fabulous 😘

  18. mr.m June 20, 2017

    Well, tbh she was SO overrated.
    can’t sing, can’t dance, cant pull a performance. SO corny.
    One of the worst live performers of all time. nothing’ special. FACT.
    this era is a bit dark, sexual, spicy xtina’s boinicy-ish and not for her kids fan-base
    well, she’s so talented as a song writer. I can see her writing songs for other artists.
    good luck gurl ….

    Have y’all seen the second week predictions? SCREAMING at her selling the same as Halsey’s third week in SPS and less than f****** SZA. She really is done. Talent really won.
    BTW: Borde’s album isn’t that bad. I actually liked 3 songs from it, unlike Payola Heroine.
