The BEST 5 Katy Perry bops (Post Teenage Dream era)


Recommended Posts

If you are anything like me, I refuse to drink the pop star kool-aid. What exactly does that mean or entail? I have no doubt that the media and music critics choose a pop star  to tear down  every so often, after they once built them up, vibed with their music and genuinely praised them. It happened to Gaga, Britney, Nicki and Demi to name a few. I personally consider myself a grown *** man and  able to make my own decision as to what music I personally enjoy and what music gets a hard “nah son” from me. As of late, the scrutiny  has been focused on Katy Perry, her pop persona and her music. While I do believe she will benefit ultimately  and will start to create buzz like she once did, once such pendulum returns to her good side.  Ms. Perry will eventually  get the recognition and praise that her music, lyrics and talent deserve. Katy has written many pop bangers that solidify her place in the popverse and after her most successful era, which was her “Teenage Dream” era, an album that earned her five number one singles, many wrote her off and were satisfied with that peak... As contrary to popular belief  Ms. Perry has delivered some  pop gems after such era that are worthy of praise and these are my picks:

1. Act My Age: while this pop gem did not make the “Witness” album it was packaged as a deluxe song, it certainly had enough personality to make it a super successful single.  This song is very reminiscent of songs off “ Teenage Dream” and the lyrics and chorus are the epitome of an ultimate Perry song. Such a fun pop anthem. 

 

2. Walking On Air: The song that keeps on giving. This song, the 90s beat, Perry’s vocals, every single damn thing about this song screams hit. Very sad that it was not chosen as a single, because this could’ve kept “Prism” afloat a while longer. Anything 90s just makes me happy 😃 

 

3. Never Really Over: This is one of those songs that just  like a broken record, gets stuck in your head. Justbecauseitsoverdoesntmeanitsreallyover. I mean, that spit fire lyric delivery has anyone trying to keep up with Katy. Produced by Zedd, this song simply told the world that Katy still has it in her to deliver enjoyable and good pop music. 

 

4. Bon Appétit: I will never get tired of saying this, but this pop masterpiece did not receive the recognition it deserved. This song was so underrated and so slept on, it should be considered a crime. This would’ve sounded so great playing in gay clubs, lights down low but as they glimmer all over your body while you secretly sing it to your crush who is across the room, while you try to make unsuccessful eye contact ...ok let me stop right there. Also check out the 3LAU remix of this song, because it is straight fire 🔥 

 

5. Harleys in Hawaii: this song is such a different sound for a typical Katy Perry song, but boy oh boy, is this a win for Ms. Perry.  Her silky voice over a more mellow, laid back breezy beat while she sings about riding Harleys in Hawaii ( an odd tittle for sure)  is sure to make you want to pack  your bags and ride something in Hawaii. A great example of Katy’s writing skills, where she can turn a silly memory into a pop gem. 

 

These are my top five, do you guys have any songs that think should’ve made the list? Let me know on your comments below.
