Composition

Perry described her fifth album Witness as a "360-degree liberation" record, with "Bon Appétit" representing a "sexual liberation".[1] She also called it a "pretty sexual" song that was part of "some of that good 'ol Katy Perry, fluffy stuff that you love so much".[2] "Bon Appétit" is a disco-infused dance-pop and trap-pop song[3][4] with a duration of 3 minutes and 47 seconds.[5] According to Hugh McIntyre from Forbes, the track's rhythm features "breezy, summery, 90's-invoking vibes" and a beat that gradually builds, eventually becoming "undeniable".[6] MTV writer Sasha Geffen calls the track, "a smorgasbord" of double entrendres with food.[3] In the song, Perry sings "'Cause I'm all that you want, boy/All that you can have, boy/Got me spread like a buffet/Bon a, Bon appétit, baby".[7] Christopher R. Weingarten of Rolling Stone found the song similar to the music of AC/DC.[8]

The song is written in the key of ♭ minor with a tempo of 106 beats per minute in common time. Perry's vocals span from G3 to E5.[9]
