"Bon Appétit" is a song by Katy Perry from her fifth studio album, Witness. The song features rap group, Migos and was released on April 28, 2017 as the album's official second single. A solo version featuring a new bridge was also serviced to radio. Perry said the song represents sexual liberation.

Background and release

The song was confirmed by Perry at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards during an interview on the red carpet with Ryan Seacrest. "There’s going to be all kinds of stuff on [the album] and don’t worry you’re going to have some of that good, old Katy Perry fluffy stuff that you love so much. I have one song called ‘Bon Appétit’ that I love."[1] Perry teased the track on her Instagram story on March 17, 2017.

On April 24, 2017 Perry sent out a newsletter which featured a recipe for the "World's Best Cherry Pie". The final step is a nod to the song, saying "Bon Appétit, Baby".[2] She later tweeted the recipe along with an image of cherry apple pie.[3] On April 26, 2017 Perry sent fans who baked Cherry Pies a black-colored menu, titled "TÉMOIN" which translates from French to "Witness". This is a nod to the song "Witness" which is also expected to be featured on the album. The same day Perry unveiled the official single artwork tweeting "Compliments to the chef."[4]

During a session on Instagram live Perry revealed her inspiration behind the song. After the writing sessions for the album, Perry's friend Lauren would say "Bon appétit b***h". Perry then thought to herself that she wanted to write a song called "Bon Appétit" for the album. To promote the song on the day of its release, Perry went to Times Square in a food truck to hand out cherry pies to fans. Perry also teamed up with Tasty on Facebook to demonstrate a cherry pie recipe. She performed the song live for the first time during the Met Gala 2017, where she was accompanied by Migos.

Dent De Cuir directed the song's music video, which was released on May 12, 2017 and features Chef Roy Choi. It first shows Perry wrapped in plastic before chefs cut the wrapping open and "start kneading her like dough" before she is boiled in a pot with carrots while singing her lyrics and Choi serves her as a meal. Migos watches and raps their verses as she then dances on a pole. Perry then is served a pie containing dismembered body parts.

Lyrics

Album version

(Katy Perry)
'Cause I'm all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin'
Bon appétit, baby

Looks like you've been starving
You've got those hungry eyes
You could use some sugar
'Cause your levels ain't right
I'm a five-star Michelin
A Kobe flown in
You want what I'm cooking, boy

Let me take you
Under candle light
We can wine and dine
A table for two
And it's okay
If you take your time
Eat with your hands, fine
I'm on the menu

'Cause I'm all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin'
Bon appétit, baby

So you want some more
Well I'm open 24
Wanna keep you satisfied
Customer's always right
Hope you've got some room
For the world's best cherry pie
Gonna hit that sweet tooth, boy

Let me take you
Under candle light
We can wine and dine
A table for two
And it's okay
If you take your time
Eat with your hands, fine
I'm on the menu

'Cause I'm all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin'
Bon appétit, baby

'Cause I'm all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin'
Bon appétit, baby

(Quavo)
Sweet potato pie
It'll change your mind
Got you running back for seconds
Every single night

(Takeoff)
I'm the one they say can change your life
No waterfall, she drippin' wet, you like my ice? (Blast)
She say she want a Migo night
Now I ask her, "What's the price?" (Hold on)
If she do right, told her get whatever you like

(Offset)
I grab her legs and now divide, aight
Make her do a donut when she ride, aight
Looking at the eyes of a dime, make you blind
In her spine and my diamonds change the climate

(Quavo)
Sweet tooth, no tooth fairy
Whipped cream, no dairy
She got her hot light on, screaming, "I'm ready"
No horses, no carriage

(Katy Perry)
'Cause I'm all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin'
Bon appétit, baby

Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin'
Bon appétit, baby
