Katy Perry "Dark Horse"

As Katy Perry promised, here’s the second preview track off her highly-anticipated third studio album Prism (out on 10/22), called “Dark Horse,” which is now available on iTunes! The Dr. Luke and Max Martin produced track features Memphis rapper Juicy J, and is a dark thumper that’s completely opposite of Prism‘s lead single, “Roar.” Still no word on what will be the album’s official second single, yet Katy will be offering up the track “Walking On Air” at the end of the month on 9/30 (one of my Prism top picks after hearing the album at her listening party last week in LA). Listen to “Dark Horse” below, it’s totally growing on me the more I listen to it, plus it definitely has strong dance remix potential!
