Katy Perry Rules the Ancient Egypt in 'Dark Horse' Music Video Ft. Juicy J
Katy Perry has finally debuted the music video for her latest single with Juicy J, "Dark Horse", in full. Directed by Matthew Cullen, the brand new clip features Perry as Katy-Patra, a queen who lives in Memphis, Egypt, "a crazy long time ago."
The queen, surrounded by her people, sits on her throne as many suitors are tying to win her heart with gifts including a huge diamond, Hot Cheetos, a chariot and a golden pyramid. Unfortunately, nothing pleases the queen. She uses her power to turn the men into dust.
Her collaborator Juicy J also makes an appearance in the clip, delivering his verses after coming out from a sarcophagus. He later joins Perry as she and some backing dancers are showing off some moves on the pole.
Following up love song "Unconditinally", "Dark Horse" is currently spending its fourth week at No. 1 on Billboard 100. It serves as the third single off Perry's latest album, "Prism", which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200 after being released last year. The record is now sitting at No. 9 on the chart.
In late January, Perry turned into a witch when performing the track at the Grammys. She also sang the same song when taking the stage at BRIT Awards on Wednesday night, February 19.
