Hot 100: Katy Perry Procures 25th Top 40 Hit with ‘Daisies’

Published: Wednesday 27th May 2020 by Rashad

After a number of buzz singles, Katy Perry‘s fifth official era kicked off with the release of ‘Daisies.’

Penned by Perry herself, The Monsters & Strangerz-produced tune received the red carpet roll-out upon its May 15 premiere with an aggressive week of promo that followed including live performances on ‘American Idol,’ Amazon Music, and ‘Good Morning America’ as well as an onslaught of interviews in its support (click here to watch).

Now, as the refreshed Hot 100 has gone live, it appears her valiant efforts have paid off.

Less than two weeks after confirming ‘Daisies’ yet-titled parent album, the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Witness,’ would hit shelves August 14 (click here to read more), the Pop diva’s learned the tune premiered at #40 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The debut was not only powered by impressive digital sales (which led to it topping the iTunes tallies of dozens of countries around the world as we reported here), but also a single-bundle deal that allowed fans to redeem a digital copy of the song with the purchase of its vinyl edition.

Marking her 25th appearance in the Hot 100’s top 40 over her career, ‘Daisies’ placement comes as her highest since 2019’s ‘Never Really Over’ peaked at #15.

Fun fact:  The chart win adds Perry’s name to the elusive list of female acts who have had top 40 hits over three or more decades.  See the full tally by clicking here.

    Damn, taylor swift really ended her when she dropped that bad blood video.
    Katy’s career has never recovered since then.

    Gurl u better jump on one of these new pop girls to get a hit

    Nicki did it with doja
    Beyonce did it with megan
    Lady gaga has done it with ariana.( Rain on me is predicted to hit number one next week. )

    Katy I think u should collaborate with dua.

    • POPS+Muva May 27, 2020

      she really has not recovered even after they made up and became cool Katy just became irrelevant and everything she has done flops. the once queen of number 1’s has fallen so hard not even gaga has reached a career low like this.

    • Aaa May 28, 2020

      Yet you are the one saying all these main girls like Nicki, Beyoncé, and Gaga are over for debuting higher than this by themselves remember Gaga and number 5 peak of Stupid Love. Clarkson you are just some b**** twink hater that has no life and lives behind a computer.

  4. Bogus May 27, 2020

    I’m surprised this isn’t doing better. It’s a very Katy Perry song. I think it’s because she’s constantly in public eye ie: American Idol

    • D May 28, 2020

      Th At has nothing at all to do with it. That actually is probably the reason it did so well top 40 is hit status.
