Ew, honestly the worst attempt at a chart song I've heard from either Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj. I trusted you op.

The lyrics in this song feel pretty awkwardly crammed into the melodies sometimes. Just add a few more syllables to your lines, guys.

Oddly enough Chained to the Rhythm was the only Katy Perry song I gave ever really enjoyed.

Surprised it flopped.

Standing here like I'm supposed to say something
Don't hold your breath, I never said I'd save you, honey
And I don't want your money
If I was you, I'd run from me or rip me open
You'll see you're not the only one who's hopeless
Be sure to put your faith in something more
I'm just a girl and you're not as alone as you feel
We all got problems, don't we?
We all need heroes, don't we?
But rest assured, there's not a single person here who's worthy

Hey baby, I'm not your superhuman
And if that's what you want
I hate to let you down
I got your hopes up
Now I got you hoping
That I'm gonna be the one to let you down


Oh, it's such a long and awful lonely fall
Down from this pedestal that you keep putting me on
What if I fall on my face?
What if I make a mistake?
If it's okay a little grace would be appreciated
Remember how we used to like ourselves?
What little light that's left, we need to keep it sacred
I know that you're afraid to let all the dark escape you
But we can let the light illuminate these hopeless places


Oh, no, I ain't your hero
You're wasting all your faith on me
Oh, no, I know where this goes
Think it's safe to say your savior doesn't look a thing like me

This seems to be a recurrent problem present in all the songs released so far.

Both Chained to the Rhythm and Bon Appetit have awkward lyrics and melodies that lack rhythm (ironically enough for Chained to the Rhythm) and with some pretty questionable rhymes. Swish swish just follows that trend.

Chained to Max Martin is the best song to cum from Witness TBQH

This song would've been better without the Ket vocals with only Queen Onika being the only good thing about this sonG

Keep Onika, lose Ketty

That's 90 percent of Katy Perry. Sometimes the beat is slow enough to match how slow she is, but usually she just speak-sings at the same tempo and hopefully it works with the music.

But I promised myself I'm done complaining about pop acts since The Chainsmokers showed me the afterlife exists, it's now and it's only hell.

OK, I listened just because I wanted to see if you all were piling on. Unfamiliar with PopGAF.

It's not good. I got bored. Not even "mindless good" enough to put on my workout playlist.

Almost catchy in parts. Whoever said there's a 90's house beat in there was right, and that's the only part I found redeeming.

It's an inoffensive 90s style house track, I don't mind it at all. Bon Appetit is better, but I don't really get the hate it's getting here.

Probably the worst thing I've heard Duke Dumont produce tbh.

Get into greatness such as The Giver or his HAIM-remix instead:

Yeah, it's a little too early to say this but the Charli XCX mixtape is up there. I also expect The Bleachers album to be really good.

Not that I have a dog in this fight but I just checked Spotify and the song has over 200 million hits... Pop GAF's barometer for success puzzles me...

Actual sales were less than stellar. I think the following single sold like 17,000 in the first week or some shit. She's just not lighting up the charts.

Yup it really feels like an unmastered track to me. Tempos randomly changing, beats and lyrics drop with just dead air. I can't imagine that people in the studio were like "Oh this is lit!" after creating this. It's so basic lyrically and musicaly.

It's funny hearing so many modern musicians taking inspiration from boring ass 90's dance music. Music has gotten so depressingly stale.

At least the Nicki Minaj part is alright.
