Following Katy Perry's lead single, "Chained to the Rhythm," the Cali songstress released today a new song, "Bon Appetit," featuring Atlanta rap trio Migos. The track was written by Perry herself, featuring assistance from longtime collaborators Max Martin, Shellback, Oscar Holter and Ferras Alqaisi. As the picnic-inspired artwork teased earlier this week, the track sees Perry offering herself up to a lover for two-person dinner and repeating the hilariously catch one-liner, "Bon Appetit, baby."
The single's viral promo singlehandedly spawned a baking revival, with Perry telling fans to "bake me a pie" in exchange for a special surprise. She posted an offical recipe on Instagram for the "World's Best Cherry Pie," and what resulted was a flurry of frenzied Twitter posts, featuring curious variations on the original pie. Scroll through the pop star's feed to see all the sweet submisions--some on-point and others complete disasters.
Though "Bon Appetit" is an undeniable smash, packed with bouncy club production and Perry's sultry delivery, the track is a vast shift from the "Purposeful Pop" era she first introduced through "Chained to the Rhythm." That's not to say there isn't room for both, but the difference in lyrical direction is curious; some are rightfully criticizing Perry for including Migos on the track, as well, who's infamous for saying homophobic comments to Rolling Stone. But if you're looking to pop for sound ethics, you've come to the wrong place.
