"Never Really Over" on YouTube

"Never Really Over" is a song by American singer Katy Perry, released on May 31, 2019 by Capitol Records. The song was later included on the track list of her sixth studio album, Smile (2020), as the first song on the album. It is an electropop track inspired by Norwegian singer Dagny's "Love You Like That" (2017). The song received critical acclaim for its production and hook.

"Never Really Over" peaked within the top 10 in as Australia, Canada, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, the Philippines and Scotland as well as the top 20 in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Panama, Poland, Singapore, Slovakia, the United Kingdom and the United States. At the APRA Music Awards of 2020, "Never Really Over" was nominated for Most Performed Pop Work of the Year. [1] [2]

Promotion and release

On May 27, Universal Music Group first hinted towards a new project when a few selected fans were invited to a "Katy Perry Fan Event" that took place two days later. [3] Perry announced the song and revealed the official artwork on her Instagram on May 28. [4] Its cover shows her with blonde hair and wearing an orange dress. [5] The song was made available for pre-save on Spotify upon announcement. [6] Good Morning America teased the song and the music video on May 30, 2019, before its release the following day. [7]

On November 29, 2019, a Black Friday Record Store Day limited edition 12" orange vinyl was released, pairing the song with Perry's next single " Small Talk". [8]

Composition

"Never Really Over" is inspired by Dagny's "Love You Like That".

"Never Really Over" is an electropop [9] [10] [11] and dance-pop [12] song that contains a steady bubblegum and house beat, as well as propulsive synth chords. [10] [13] Perry co-wrote the song with Gino Barletta, Hayley Warner and its producers Leah Haywood and Daniel James of Dreamlab, as well as Zedd, with whom Perry previously collaborated on " 365". [14] The track is inspired by the 2017 song "Love You Like That", performed by Dagny and written by Dagny, Michelle Buzz and Jason Gill, who all received writing credits for "Never Really Over". Despite their credits, Dagny "never sat down in a room with Katy, or wrote the song for her", but had been contacted by Perry's team in early 2019 and told that "they had been really inspired, and had a song that was like their version of ["Love You Like That"]". [15] It runs for three minutes and 44 seconds and is performed in the key of A major with a tempo of 100 beats per minute. [14] [16]

Critical reception

The song received critical acclaim, [17] with Jillian Mapes of Pitchfork called the song "a promising way forward" for Perry and her best single since 2013's " Walking on Air", appreciating the lyrics for not being "horrendously cheesy (a noted weak spot for Perry and her co-writers)". She wrote that Perry made "bad decisions sound enticing" and hailed it as her "most impressively tongue-tied chorus to date". [18] Chris Willman of Variety shared a similar view, saying the repetition in the chorus "somehow works to the song's tongue-twisting advantage". [19] The A.V. Club's Gwen Ihant wrote that the track "puts Perry right back in earworm territory" and called it an "impressive showcase" of her vocals with an "addictive hook songwriters dream of". [20] In The New York Times, Jon Caramanica described it as " Norwegianish Spotifycore" and a " bubble-pop" song. [21]

The Independent's Roisin O'Connor regarded "Never Really Over" as a "truly gratifying return" for Perry after "a period of misfires", noting that it has "hooks galore and harks back her Teenage Dream days of uplifting, bright pop music." [22] Ilana Kaplan of Rolling Stone favored "the return of her hypnotic vocals" and felt the song "puts Perry back where she belongs: on Sugar Mountain." [23] In his review for Clash, Robin Murray deemed it a "pop jewel". [24] Mikael Wood of the Los Angeles Times compared the song's "willfully imprecise" lyrics and "carefully reverbed" vocals to " Me!" by Taylor Swift, concluding that despite its charms, "Perry is probably no better protected." [25]

Commercial performance

"Never Really Over" debuted at number 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100 with 31,000 pure sales and 15.8 million streams, giving Perry her 19th top 20 song in the country. It also became her highest debut on the chart since " Chained to the Rhythm" in 2017 as well as her fifth highest entrance there overall. [26] [27] On April 26, 2021, the song was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for equivalent sales of 1,000,000 units in the United States. [28]

In the United Kingdom, the song opened at number 13 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Perry's 19th top 20 entry in the nation and has since reached number 12. [29] Elsewhere, "Never Really Over" debuted at number 47 in Germany, [30] number seven on Australia's ARIA Singles Chart and at number 19 in New Zealand. [31]

Music videos

A music video, directed by Philippa Price, was released along with the single on May 31, 2019. [32] On May 29, 2019, Perry shared a teaser for the music video with the caption "Let it go..." [33] It amassed more than 17.7 million views within its first day of release. [34] It currently has more than 100 million views. The music video was shot at King Gillette Ranch in Malibu, California. [35]

Reception

Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine praised the style and cinematography of the music video. He called it "a playful and imaginative portrayal of love's intoxicating spell and the lengths some of us will go to exorcise ourselves of it." [36]

The video has been noted for its cultural references to hippie era and artistic similarities to New Age symbolism. [37] [36] Suzy Byrne of Yahoo! noted the video's spiritual themes and called Perry a "New Age goddess". She praised the concept and remarked that it was a "well-choreographed video". [38]

Visual album video

On August 26, 2020, Perry posted a visual album video of "Never Really Over" to her YouTube channel. It features a first-person view of an animated person living a day at home whilst in the COVID-19 pandemic. Perry has said that the video is based on her "experiences with dishes during quarantine". [39] [40]

Live performances
