    Looking forward to it! HIH and NRO are some of her all time best work and I enjoy Daisies and WMAW as well

    It won’t be a success given her current trajectory but I’m hoping for a solid album.

    That song had potential to be a hit a few years ago.

    i feel like if a more relevant artist had released it, it would’ve done really well. oh well…

    I’m excited for the album and happy that Katy is still putting out quality work, despite what others may say. In a time before streaming, I think Never Really Over and Daises would have done well at the Grammys.

    Sidenote, I can’t believe its been 10 years since the Pop masterpiece that is Teenage Dream. And to think, she was able to gain five #1 hits from that album, all without streaming, which is the only way to get a #1 today. True power!

    Congrats to you Katy!

    Katy ending with the exact same career trajectory as Xtina. Strong debut, peaked with their 2nd album, good third album, flopped fourth album but people still cared that it flopped and then everybody stopped checking by the fifth.

    They are not. Teenage Dream finished with a 52 Metascore and we all know how iconic this album is and was nominated for Album of the Year.

    So at 64, Smile is not that bad.

    Only difference is that Katy smartly knows Idol will keep her name out there unlike Aguilera who quit The Voice

    A Katy Perry album panned, how shocking  *_*

    The press always hated her music I think.

    I’m not expecting much from this album. Never Really Over was good but that was only because Katy turned up with an above-average vocal performance. Her big problem now is that she’s been severely lacking in production quality ever since she left Dr. Luke. Her new songs just aren’t fun to listen to. Daisies in particular just sounds like noise: that song has such abysmal mixing. I think Katy has always been carried by production quality: she’s a mediocre vocalist, a mediocre performer, and she relies on others to write her music. I guess that makes Dua Lipa the new Katy Perry, in a way.

    I’ll still listen to this album because I like Katy Perry, or at least her Golden Age music, and at the very least she can be content knowing her Teenage Dream and Prism eras will always be fondly remembered and will continue to supply her with a steady stream of revenue.

    I agree. For her stick, she did what she had to do, I just think Katy Perry instisted on doing campy music that much that it kinda annoys people in the end, it is just this type of pop music doesn’t sell anymore. It is not cool in 2020 and she is deemed kinda old from the audience to be campy. I will listen it with low expectations.

    I will also add that most of the snippets aren’t doing much for me other than Not The End Of The World so hopefully the album is better in full.
