Charlie Puth Covers Katy Perry’s “Bon Appetit” For BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge
He’s on the menu! Charlie Puth dropped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge today (June 15) and delivered a stripped-back cover of Katy Perry’s “Bon Appetit.” It’s not the most obvious choice given the campy, double entendre-laden content, but the 25-year-old successfully transformed it into a soulful jam. He also switched the pronouns from male to female, but to his credit, there are still a couple of “boys” left in there too. Once you get your head around the hitmaker crooning about being “spread like a buffet,” this is well worth a listen!
The “See You Again” singer also performed his current single. I still think “Attention” is a dark horse for Song Of The Summer and Charlie made a good case for that with a slinky rendition. While the track is steadily climbing the Billboard Hot 100, it is a streaming sensation with a whopping 138 million Spotify streams. The unhinged video is almost as popular with 134 million views on YouTube. When radio catches up, there will be no stopping him. In the meantime, watch “Bon Appetit” up top and “Attention” below.
