Pop songstress Katy Perry‘s politically charged last single, ‘Chained to the Rhythm,’ may not have been linked to the type of ‘out of the box’ success she’s used to enjoying, but its follow-up – ‘Bon Appetit‘ featuring chart-topping rap group Migos – may be on track to sing another tune (commercially).
Being served alongside a healthy helping of controversy (click here to read more about that), listen to it inside and tell us if Ms. Perry will land a hit akin to the other big smashes that line her discography:
With an intro and chorus that grabs you from the start and builds some serious anticipation, we applaud Ms. Perry for “sticking to her strengths” and delivering another safe and radio friendly number just in time for summer. But, as you listen on, that anticipation basically builds to nothing as the verses are underwhelming at best.
If you asked us, this isn’t exactly what we were hoping for and, more importantly, this isn’t what Katy needs at this juncture in her career. To add, for as much as people are dissing her for adding Migos, they actually own the track’s best part.
Here’s hoping a video as epic as ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ will be delivered with the tune to help add interest. From where we stand, after the initial hype wears off, ‘Bon Appetit’ will be LUCKY to be served the same reception its predecessor was.
