Katy Perry Tramples the Competition with "Dark Horse"

Posted Thursday January 9, 2014 8:18 PM GMT

Coming back with a vengeance with her Juicy-J-featured single, Katy Perry just released "Dark Horse," the latest hit featured on her new Prism album.

The stylized art created for the song features the 29-year-old in a Shakespearean lavender dress, amongst the backdrop of a dark fantasy world, donning brass armor, forged in the shape of an angry war charger.

The song itself features a laid-back but driven beat, and a fantastical melody, pierced with the haunting allure of Katy's voice, partnered up with duet and breakdown from Jordan Michael Houston (Juicy J).

"Dark Horse" and its droning, adventurous melody managed to land Katy's performance on Billboard's top 10 the Hot 100 this week, and also topped the charts on iTunes' download chart. Listen here!
