On This Day in #KatyPerryHistory… 12th January 2018, Hey Hey Hey single was released
Hey Hey Hey was written by Katy Perry, Sia Furler, Sarah Hudson, Max Martin and Ali Payami and released as the fourth single from Katy’s 2017 album, Witness.
Music critics gave mixed reviews of Hey Hey Hey, with some praising it as one of the highlights of Witness, while others deemed it mediocre and called it a failed attempt at duplicating the success of Katy’s older hits. It was also compared to the works of Britney Spears and Lorde. To accompany the track, a music video was uploaded onto Katy’s official YouTube account in December 2017. The clip was filmed by Isaac Rentz in Beverly Hills, California and is set in the 18th century and the Ancien Régime, with the Katy’s outfits resembling those of the last Queen of France Marie Antoinette and French heroine Joan of Arc. For further promotion, Katy gave several live performances of Hey Hey Hey, including those during her concert tour Witness: The Tour (2017–2018) and her four-day YouTube live stream Katy Perry Live: Witness World Wide (2017).
