New Song: Katy Perry's "Dark Horse"
Are you ready for the perfect storm? Hear Katy & Juicy's trappy new track!
Remember when Katy Perry asked her fans to help unlock the lyrics to a choice between two of her new songs off her forthcoming release, Prism? The winner ended up being "Dark Horse", which we thought might be a more folk-esque song based off the title and snippet of lyrics she released, but upon first listen...it's a little mix of pop, hip-hop and trap!
Featuring Three 6 Mafia member Juicy J, it's a more minimal version of Ms. Perry's past dabble with rap, "E.T." ft. Kanye West, and after a few spins we're really into this side of KP. It reminds us of an unreleased track from Rihanna's Unapologetic, but with a signature Katy twist to it. Singing the lyrics Make me your Aphrodite / Make me your one and only / But don't make me your enemy, the song is essentially a warning to her lover-to-be: don't break her heart or she'll have to whip out her dark magic on you!
