Katy Perry Teases ‘Swish Swish’ Video

Published: Tuesday 25th Jul 2017 by Sam

Despite Katy Perry‘s heartiest efforts, the world watched on as her ‘Witness’ album quickly tanked post arrival.

Unwrapped last month without the padding of a preceding hit, the set premiered with 180k Sales-Plus-Streaming units. A figure that is by no means “bad,” but one that would go on to prove front-loaded.

Because in the time since, total sales of the LP have been stuck hovering at the 230k+ mark.

Worst still, the project has vanished from the US iTunes 100 suggesting a bounce-back is unlikely.

Undeterred, Perry is readying the video for ‘Swish Swish’ – her collaboration with Nicki Minaj.

Some are scratching their heads given that the song was first heard way back in May. But, with ‘Witness’ not being a buffet of obvious singles, it appears Perry is shooting her shot with her most plausible option.

Taking to social media, she teased its video. Peep the pic and caption below…

“Be the ball they said, become one they said ??‍♀️ #swishswish”

While we’re a bit “blah” about Katy’s entire era, we kinda commend her for pressing on. Like, at this point, what is there really to lose?

She may as well try and hustle a hit with this, go on tour, do ‘American Idol,’ and try again with her next album.

Whether she’ll have the vast audience she was once used to come that time will be intriguing to see.

But until then…

Your thoughts?

    Katy the real “queen of shade”, shades Taylor, Shades Mariah then the lambs attach so she makes an appearance at Mariah’s vegas show and takes a cute photo, and wonders why the public has turned against her….. Well Hunnie, You hair cut is not the issue, its your horrible vocals that you hide behind cute videos and beats. SWISH is the single, and it should have been released months ago, along with the video, this ERA your trying to find your way but it might be too late. Swish has a hot beat and a hot verse by the T*****-in-Training Nicki.

    Everybody giving me rihanna eras.. massive singles but a quarter of that will buy your albums. Beyonce and Adele are the only ones who have a fan base to keep them relevant their entire era. We have yet to see if Taylor is going to do the same . Anyway in all honesty Katy has the best album by a female this year!! If she rearranged the order it would flow better

      Lol beyonce struggles just to maintain 1 million in sales after almost 2 years, so she’s not special.

        Why do you despise Beyonce so? Respect and recognize success and talent and stop bringing your hate filled false innuendos and comments here.

      Rihanna’s album is still charting on BB higher then any pop girls who released this year! Shade!

    • Jamon July 25, 2017

      Taylor goes platinum in a week. What else do you need to see from her? Adele is the only one to out sale her.

      • Erica July 25, 2017

        Taylor hasn’t beat Britney first week sales yet hunny

      Beyoncé? She can’t even scan 5M. The exaggerationg.

      • Justme July 25, 2017

        Can someone name the last female artist to actually sell a million copies of an album without sps.. I’ll wait. Oh yeah it was beyonce.. y all can keep that well rihanna gave it away because Beyonce’s 4 was leaked 3 weeks prior to the release and guess what it sold over a million without sps..riri.gaga.katy.miley.demi.even Ariana haven’t actually sold a million copies within the past two years.

    Looks like it’s going to be an entertaining video. Can’t wait.

    I don’t care about all these gossip folks, I am here for the music and Witness is her best album to date. I love every track and i’m still listening to them again and again. I just can’t wait to watch the Swish Swish video, go Katy !

  7. Liam July 25, 2017

    Well that’s what you do keep promoting the album till the wheels fall off….flop or not!

  8. mr.m July 25, 2017

    this can be a hit
    it’s her last shot to save her tanking album ..
    good luck ….

    Katy Perry…poor thing. You spread hate and it will come back like the wrath of locusts. The “shade” she thought would take her far has only damaged her image. Her hair could be like Rapunzal or balder than Wendy Williams scalp, but the karma is already on her side.

    She should look to artist like Lana Del Rey to bring back the light she once had and not nursery rhymers like Migos. To start, she should apologize to those she directed negativity too. For those who cannot see thy reflection will see only dusk.

    As for Beyonce and Adele being the only ones, Beyonce buys most of her own albums, and old white people support Adele. They dont know how to use the internet to download. Keep reaching. You will fall in the same pits as your leader Katy.

      Why would she buy her own album? She wouldn’t be making money that way. It’s Jay-Z and Rihanna that need a giant corporation to buy a million copies of their albums.

    “Worst still, the project has vanished from the US iTunes 100 suggesting a bounce-back is unlikely.”

    Didn’t her album just rise back into the top 20 or 30 on billboard 200 though?

  11. Nicki A Goat not G.O.A.T July 26, 2017

    Two flops in a bucket. Fock it!

  12. Carlitos July 26, 2017

    Katy has a very solid fan base. She’s been breaking multiple records lately. This album is her best, esp. lyrically. She’s literally a genius. People have a hard time with change, and they’re going to start coming around.
