Katy Perry – Dark Horse Featuring Juicy J Review
“Katy Perry” is back into the field with a blistering new track “Dark Horse”. It is a single from her upcoming album “Prism” and the song is markedly different from the other tracks on the album. “Dark Horse” is well darker.
The song also features the rapper “Juicy J” in the beginning and some ending. “Dark Horse” comprises of Perry’s voice, a melodious piano and an undulating hip-hop beat.
Lyrically, the song warns a prospective suitor to tread tightly and to proceed with caution, since her love is passionate, powerful and not to be messed with or treated carelessly.
“Dark Horse” does not storm out like “Roar” did but it is more deliberate in making its points and is slower and sultrier. We can say that Perry is at her most urban and we using this term incredibly loosely but it has certainly got elements of hip-hop. It is more like hip-hop especially in its production values and elements.
Juicy J delivers the best line in the song which is “She’ll eat your heart like Jeffery Dahmer”. He is the voice of reason also reminding the object of Perry’s affections to do right by her or else.
The song is a harmonious composition by the intelligent music lovers. It is to be loved by the nation, and of course the song takes the benefit of its lead vocalists, who needs no introduction.
