Katy Perry has previewed her new music video online.
The singer will release ‘Dark Horse’ as the third cut to be lifted from her recent album Prism.
What a tease!
Katy Perry has just given us a sneak peek at her upcoming music video for “Dark Horse,” and the gal is obviously going the Cleopatra route.
“According to legend there was a magical queen in Memphis, Egypt,” reads a scroll at the beginning of the Egyptian-themed clip. “Every eclipse, kings would travel from Brooklyn to Babylon to win her heart. If she fell in love, you’d be top dawg. If she didn’t, her wrath would leave you whimpering. Her name was Katy Pätra. who will win her heart?”
The preview ends with a set of doors opening up to reveal Perry dressed up very much like the aforementioned famed pharaoh…and sporting one crazy grill!
“Dark Horse,” the third single off of the 29-year-old’s Prism album, features rapper Juicy J, who spoke to MTV News about working with Perry.
“She’s really a genius,” he said. “She was by the mixing board and telling the guy what to take in and take out. She’s really hands-on with her music. She knows music.”
Meanwhile, the full “Dark Horse” video is set to premiere on Feb. 20.
