His Witness album was a commercial flop, selling only 162,000 copies in the United States – less than a tenth of sales from his previous album Prism.
But the failures of the 2017 project seem to have inspired Katy Perry, based on the thoughtful words of her next song Smile.
“ Rejection can be the protection of God / A long difficult road to obtain this redemption, ” sings the hitmaker of Firework in one of the lyrics of the song.
Not many witnesses: the commercial failures of her 2017 project, Witness, seem to have inspired Katy Perry, based on the thoughtful words of her next song Smile. Seen here on tour for the album in 2018
In the song’s most telling lyrics, Perry (real name Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson) sings, ‘Goin’ through movements, felt so wrong, Not me, not my best, Felt like I failed test. ”
In another verse of the song – which features a Diddy cameo – the former gospel singer sang: “ I’m 2.0, reshaped, Used to be dull, now I’m sparkling, I had a piece of humble pie This journey of the ego saved my life. ”
Witness’s record sales were indeed humiliating for the pop star, whose global sales of his Teenage Dream and Prism records equaled 10 million units combined.
The witness, by comparison, sold only 900,000 copies.
Smile should appear on the Californian singer’s sixth album, as well as on the hit Never Really Over from last year.

Katy recently shared with Extra that she had “horrible days” while pregnant.
“Even though I can be very annoyed by being quarantined with my family in close quarters, I think we have laid new foundations within our family,” she said.
“There is an even stronger bond. We have horrible days when I want to cry, but I think when we think about it, for me, it will be this beautiful bond that we created.

That does not happen: the singer shared during a live Facebook chat earlier in the week that she accepted the fact that she was not going to be able to take a baby shower for her child, in the middle of the global pandemic.
