Estimates for US 2nd week sales are 14-18k SPS.

Looks like they're gonna ignore this entire project and focus on her new single with Calvin Harris.

Ugh, I feel like there are so many escape routes these days. In the 90's if you flopped, you flopped. Now they tag you onto a song with every hot producer on Earth to keep you sticking around.

"Chained to the Rhythm" and "Bon Appetit" are the strongest songs on the album and they still feel subpar. The former is very tepid, the latter needed better lyrics.

The rest of the songs have some interesting production elements, but they lack hooks. There's no punch, it's all very boring.

Jesus at those numbers. The unfortunate reality is, the album is also utter crap, forgettable and also far too preachy with nothing all that interest to even sermon. She seems a bit traumatised (either by life or Trump or both) and I don't think her was remotely in the game to come in and record. You can certainly do 'awakening' or 'statement/growth' albums in pop - Ray Of Light being a great example but that album was loaded with compelling lyrics, interesting messages and obviously electrifying production.

Everything about this album feels so basic, boring and misfired.

Yikes it apperas the album is now completely dead. The silver lining here is at least she was spared the first week total bomb headlines by going all out and getting a respectable opening week.

I wish they released Witness with footage from the live streaming weekend . It would be a nice way to wrap this album. I love that song, even though if it's not single worthy. Anyway, she has had her Bionic/ Artpop, her next move is going to be crucial.

^100 x better than anything on Witness. Pharrell's part is the best part of it though.

Yeah, I actually like this song. Pharrell is at his best. Katy is cute but I don't really think she adds something to the song, meaning she doesn't even stand out. It could have been any other singer doing her part and it'd still sound the same. Nice little summer song though, I'll use.

Funny, I had the opposite reaction. I think Pharrell sounds terrible here -- I think the key is too high for him? They should have gotten another singer for his parts.
I actually love everything else about the song, including Katy's chorus. I think she sounds great (a bit like Gwen Stefani), but still great.

Feels is cute and sounds like a Pharrell summer hit, but I wish he would've had a real female singer as duet partner. As Kim said to Kenya "I don't know why you're still here".
