A Final Word on Katy Perry and the 2010s

I was just thinking....

When I look back at the 2010s in 2020, the Perry song for which I will remember both the era and Perry herself isn't even on Teenage Dream. "If We Ever Meet Again," a 2010 single by Timbaland featuring Perry from Timbaland's Shock Value II album, was a major hit in pretty much every country in which it was released except the U.S., where it peaked at No. 37. (As I've mentioned before, I've seen and heard it rock dance floors in Buenos Aires, Melbourne and Bangkok.) No doubt it would have fared 36 notches better had it been a Teenage Dream single one year later. In pop, timing is everything!
