Despite mixed opinions from critics, Katy Perry‘s latest album ‘Smile’ still receives praise from the audience. Here are 7 most catchy songs in this album.
Never Really Over
‘Never Really Over’ is an electro-pop song. Pitchfork’s editor Jillian Mapes gave a pretty good rating for ‘Never Never Over’. She considered it “a promising way forward”. Meanwhile, Jael Goldfine of Paper praised the Haim and Carly Rae Jepsen’s influence on the main production of the track.
Since its release, the product received quite great results when it reached the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. This is considered the most successful song of this album.
What Makes a Woman
Katy Perry released ‘What Makes a Woman’ as a promotional single on August 20, 2020. The song has an attractive, catchy color that you cannot ignore.
It is known that ‘What Makes A Woman’ is also the song that Katy Perry dedicates to her newborn daughter. The 35-year-old singer shared, “That is a hope I have for my future child, is that she doesn’t have any limits on any of her dreams, or what she wants to be, or who she thinks she is. And, you know, she can change whenever she wants…”
Cry About It Later
With an energetic tone and an unobtrusive confession, ‘Cry About It Later’ is a hymn for girls who are experiencing traumas. And it is not surprising that the music list of dance floors and bars usually include this song
Having the same name as the album, ‘Smile’ has a flat record on the charts and is officially Katy Perry’s worst-performing title song ever.
However, the song more or less conveys a very positive energy. Now, what she has is happiness with her husband and child.
‘Daisies’ was released on May 15, 2020 as the main single of the album. Rolling Stone’s Brittany Spanos described the song as bright, booming and empowering. Variety’s Jem Aswad called the song a “‘Firework’-style slow burner”, while emphasizing Katy Perry’s maturity in music.
Disco pop is not a new thing for Katy Perry. And at a time when this music genre once again rises to the top, the timing of ‘Champagne Problems’ is perfect. The soft rhythm of the violin and the cello is the perfect backdrop for Katy Perry’s powerful yet seductive voice to show off.
‘Small Talk’ was released as an independent single by Capitol Records on August 9, 2019. This track was then included in the deluxe edition of ‘Smile’. This song has a catchy and catchy melody that has made many people fall in love with it.
However, ‘Small Talk’ did quite bad on music charts. The song debuted and peaked at number 81 on the US Billboard Hot 100. In Canada, the song peaked at number 56, while peaking at number 33 in Australia.
We hope Katy Perry’s next album will do better than ‘Smile’.
