Bon Voyage: Katy Perry’s ‘Bon Appétit’ Crashes Out Of iTunes Top 100

Published: Saturday 6th May 2017 by Sam

It looks like Katy Perry may have to put in a call to Olivia Pope & Associates or an equivalent service. Because her new single ‘Bon Appétit’ is bombing – and in a big way.

Unleashed only a week ago, the Migos assisted track has experienced an uncharacteristically bad chart run.

Indeed, signs looked bad when it failed to ever reach the top 10 of US iTunes – a reality virtually unheard of for a “Katy Perry” release.

Fast forward a week and the track has vanished from the top 100 of the market leader’s digital store.

As at writing, it sits at #103.

Fascinatingly, its below its preceding single ‘Chained To The Rhythm’ (#83) and older efforts from the likes of Lady Gaga (see: ‘Million Reasons’ / #69).

With streaming figures looking equally problematic, it’s unlikely (although not impossible) that even a video will help this.

It definitely makes one wonder: If Katy is struggling to sell / stream singles, what fate awaits her album?

    ?? Bye Katy

      I don’t care what anyone says it has happen to all the girls except three Adele Taylor and Beyonce. These three girls are album artist. If your whole career is about the singles then your going to see a decline. Look at Rihanna and Gaga. They are singles artist like Katy. If your single didn’t make an impact then there is no buzz around you.

      • I can’t May 7, 2017

        Agreed. Katy has always done great with singles. So if they’re flopping, who knows how the album will do. Building your career off of successful singles is such a stupid decision for long term sustainability. It’s short lived and after the instant gratification you get for sacrificing making a great overall body of work for dumb robotic radio friendly singles, you have to keep replicating and microwaving or else…. you fade into obscurity…. Never to be heard from again… dun dun duuuunn. Katy could potentially bounce back from this though, who knows.

    This is her ARTPOP or her Britney Jean or her “4” era

    • Metzo May 6, 2017

      “4” outsold both “Artpop” and “B Jean” combined btw.

    • The Trutha May 6, 2017

      You don’t know what you’re talking about. All ARTPOP singles charted well on Itunes and BB. Applause was a huge hit 3x platinum. This is not her ARTPOP era for sure.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 6, 2017

      This is way way way worse than how Artpop started. People like to talk trash about Gaga but now finally seems like everybody can see that a basic and talentless pop tart like Katy was not going to “end” her. Gaga already outperforming her now with more risky projects than Katy´s. Gaga has the talent to survive, and even a very faithful buying public (even if not as big as years ago). Katy doesn´t have any of that and it has just showed.

      • Truth May 9, 2017

        They said the same with Christina Aguilera with everyone was trying to trash britney in 2008. Now look christina is fartting around to release anything.

    • Fancy BISH May 6, 2017

      This is Katy’s Jackie era lol

    • Jackx May 6, 2017

      Britney jean and 4 were great albums

      • Truth May 9, 2017

        4 was just ??? Britney Jean was a mess mostly and scared fans off. This is why “Glory” played a major role in winning some of her fans back and the radio. Who know she may make a better album in the future.

  3. Suicide Blonde May 6, 2017

    All the pop girls deserve to flop aside from B, R and G, they been releasing mediocre pop music for a long time now, enough.

    • Fancy BISH May 6, 2017

      A to the MEN! lol #Amen

  4. DanYiel Iman May 6, 2017

    When you s*** on a particular ethnicity surely your $$$$ money gets FUNNY! ✌??

  5. Gee May 6, 2017

    No surprise here this song becomes stale very quickly. Also Katy has not evolved and her fans have gotten older and she has remained the same.

    • Truth May 9, 2017

      I don’t know I think she never had or built a hard core fanbase. There are many artists that stay the same for years and don’t have that problem. Look at JT

  6. JOHNVIDAL May 6, 2017

    For the artists of her type I always expect a decline on all fronts and eventually be kind of forgotten with the years and decades. The very talented ones are normally the ones who prevail even when they are not here anymore. But damn it I never thought something like this was going to happen so quickly. This must be the new biggest sudden decline ever. I hope a couple more of basic pop girls follow 🙂

      lol yaaaaaaaas

    • Truth May 9, 2017

      Well you may call the old stupid but , the saying was
      The S**** are the first to go. Only reason gaga may stay around is that she’s can handle multi music styles
      Her only problem now is she needs better judgment in coming up with better songs.

  7. Starxavi May 6, 2017

    Looks like she’ll be having a mental breakdown in 3…2…1….

  8. steve May 6, 2017

    It’s not that the song is totally bad. It’s just that it doesn’t encompass who Katy is. Her songs always have a strong massage but this one eh!

    • Fashion Icon May 6, 2017

      “strong message” ? lmao things you don’t have to see ………

  9. Fancy BISH May 6, 2017

    lol #BonVoyage

  10. I HATE BLACK and WHITE B****** May 6, 2017

    They said Katy Perry kept calling the people. ..n.word. And refused to stop. Another reason I hate white trash b****** like that

  11. nah May 6, 2017

    I aint no Katy Perry fan.

    But this site revels in the failure of anyone, MESSY!

  12. Bad_Bihhind May 6, 2017

    She is not evolving, she needs to get with the times. Shes no adele, the kind of artist whose priviledged to sing whatever she wants and still slay. Artists like katy need to constantly reinvent their sound and keep up with the latest chart trends. The rise song killed it for her this era. It was the start of all struggleness. What was she doing these past 2 years tho? Wheres the heat? Shame.

  13. Casual-T May 7, 2017

    Katy foreshadowed this era when she spent the entire Rise video fighting her parachute.

  14. Bertie May 7, 2017

    Jallo domme kneusjes..

  15. mom26 May 7, 2017

    I’d say it’s not just her songs, it’s her persona. When you go full fledged Hillary Clinton warrior and declare a revolution, she lost probably a big part of her fan base. That doesn’t mean they supported Donald, it could have meant they like Bernie, or didn’t like politics period. Keep your social justice views out of the public eye and focus on what you are good at, singing and performing. In other words, shut up and sing. Other big acts have stayed non-political and for good reason.

    • Truth May 9, 2017

      Yes yes+ politics period seem to be the trend lately
      And one reason why the grammys didn’t get into it. With beyonce as well.

  16. Datredd23 May 7, 2017

    Awe to bad Katy looks like she won’t be catching up to my faves #1 record anytime soon. At least when Rih didn’t go number one she still got 5 x platinum with Four Five Seconds and nearly 2 times platinum with BBHMM but y’all called her a flop ?! Lol

  17. Dev May 7, 2017

    Katy needs to head back to the start of her career and make some ballads, she needs a Thinking of You

  18. King B May 7, 2017

    Hopefully Taylor will end up like this. Time is the ultimate truth teller. “4” wasn’t a flop at all. hahhahaa. ” What goes around, comes back around, hey my baby”, the opening line from the PLATINUM CERTIFIED SINGLE OF THE PLATINUM CERTIFIED 4 WHICH HAD 800 M SPOTIFY STREAMS.

    • Truth May 9, 2017

      Taylor has years to go + from the view of the public if Katy and Gaga gone there’s no one out there and No beyonce is a R&B artist I have seen her rise and it’s very glorious but from 2010/2013 the world tried to pass her off as a mainstream pop artist. This is one reason why she is getting a lot of “Urban album awards” from the grammys 🙂 you can’t fool us grammy voter’s

  19. Itunes Top 100 Scientist May 8, 2017

    Which site does everyone use to check the stats for itunes top 100?
