Katy Perry’s latest album, “Witness,” did not make it to the number one spot on the iTunes chart.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the official soundtrack for “Dear Evan Hansen” is currently sitting at No. 1 and has beaten True Crime Garage’s “The Bricca Family Murders.” The Tony award-winning musical also landed on the number eight spot on the Billboard album chart in February, making it the highest debut for a cast album since “Camelot.”

“Dear Evan Hansen” also made headlines after Ben Platt’s gave an inspiring acceptance speech after his Tony Award win for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical. “To all young people watching at home, don’t waste any time trying to be like anybody else because the things that make you strange are the things that make you powerful,” he said.

The cast album contains songs such as “Anybody Have A Map?” “Waving Through A Window,” “For Forever,” “Sincerely, Me,” “Requiem,” “If I Could Tell Her,” “Disappear,” “You Will Be Found,” “To Break In A Glove,” “Only Us,” “Good For You,” “Words Fail,” “So Big / So Small” and “Finale.”

Meanwhile, Billboard reported that Perry’s album did not make it to the top, perhaps because it failed to deliver on its promise of being a “purposeful pop” album. Listeners expected “Witness” to be a politically charged album based on its description alone, but that is entirely not the case. “Bon Appetit” and “Chained to the Rhythm” did not have any political context at all.

But despite its lack of political context, Perry delivered on something she told the publication ahead of “Witness” release. During an interview, the “Swish Swish” singer said that her latest album is a “mental, sexual, negative and spiritual liberation.”

In other news, Perry also made headlines over the weekend when she said that she’s burying the hatchet in her longtime feud with Taylor Swift. Several years ago, Swift’s backup dancer left her tour to work with Perry. While speaking with the Huffington Post, she said, “I am ready to let it go. I forgive her and I’m sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her.”
