New Video: Katy Perry – ‘Dark Horse (ft. Juicy J)’

Published: Thursday 20th Feb 2014 by Sam

It’s finally here.

Katy Perry unwrapped the video for blockbuster hit ‘Dark Horse’ moments ago.

The Juicy J assisted track raced its way to to the top of many a chart – including the Billboard Hot 100 – and looks poised to remain a major fixture on the upper echelon of the tally now its Egyptian themed clip has arrived.

Check out the latest of Perry visual ‘Prism’ after the jump…

Kudos to Katy for yet another stellar clip.

Granted the song hasn’t snatched us quite the way it has everyone else, if there’s one thing that Ms. Perry is proving herself a formidable force on (beyond the charts), it’s the music video arena. She quite literally delivers each and every time. A fact which may go some way in explaining her unstoppable success in the era of VEVO.

Though there exists a number of acts packing more in the talent department that Katy, many could learn from her visual approach to wig-snatching. Because at this point, it’s unparalleled.

Your thoughts?

  3. BeyIsKing (Mrs. Carter Show 2014 TONIGHT!!!) February 20, 2014

    Nicely done Ms Perry

  4. BeyIsKing (Mrs. Carter Show 2014 TONIGHT!!!) February 20, 2014

    The song would have been much better if he had done a bridge and kept Juicy J out of the equation.

  5. Valerie February 20, 2014

    Her BRITS performance was a hot ass mess

  6. BeyIsKing (Mrs. Carter Show 2014 TONIGHT!!!) February 20, 2014

    The song is cool and all but it is horrifically generic. Manufactured Pop at it’s best.

  7. Spunkypoop February 20, 2014

    One of her BEST MUSIC VIDEOS! Great job Katy!

  8. HOTSTUFF February 20, 2014

    Love it!!!! She is so refreshing and creative.SLAYTY PERRY….. where’s the video for DWUW tho ? did he shelved CHARTDROP ? Oops.

  9. idrewivy February 20, 2014

    Where is the budget? The video looks cheap, corny and tacky.

  10. Slayty Perry (Prismatic Tour) February 20, 2014

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Katy Perry you’ve done it again! Another epic video! What other pop star consistently delivers top notch, cream of the crop videos? Katy never disappoints with music videos. She rocks every wig and I love the bright colors in the video. The story of everyone trying to please her is cute too. Katy is coming for Mildred Cyrus’s VEVO record too, expect to see Dark Horse at #1 for at least another 3 weeks from streaming alone 😉

  11. britney stan February 20, 2014

    Yaaas Katy this was dope glad you dont take yourself to seriously like lady gag me.

  12. britney stan February 20, 2014

    I think Dark horse is one of the best urban influenced songs of the year so far.

  13. Queen of shade February 20, 2014

    I feel like I got dumber by watching this video is this b**** serious? That s*** was horrible is
    That video meant to be watch only by 8 or 10 year olds? But this b**** can’t don’t anything
    She can’t sing, she can’t dance,she doesn’t have s** appeal, she has no creativity, and she has not grown as
    An artist making the same bubblegum pop music KATY PERRY is what you truly call NO TALENT she might 50
    number ones but doesn’t make her anything at least RIhanna has s** appeal,gaga is a creative as hell and a great perfomer,
    Britney could dance and sing at her prime, Christina has an amazing voice and she’s always reinvented herself even if sometimes it doesn’t work but she has a great artistry, mariah wrote her music and is the songbird supreme, madonna,Janet and Whitney cause they’re the ones that did it all in the 80’s and beyonce is everything right now but this b**** KATY PERRY NO TALENT

  14. dark horse February 20, 2014

    @IDre Lmao b**** f*** outta here the video probably cost more the money then you’ve ever made in your life

  15. LTM February 20, 2014

    Before the teaser, I was expecting a dark and witch-themed music video. I love the Egyptian take for the video, very nicely done. She looked great in all those wigs. Her best video in my opinion remains ET followed by Unconditionally and Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F).

  16. Bosslady February 20, 2014

    yyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaasssssssss Ms. Katy Kat….seems her reign at #1 on the Hot 100 will keep pouring…I love KP

  17. RoyalKev February 20, 2014

    A lot of things going on in this video! Aside from all the STUFF going on here, it’s really entertaining. Katy’s really stepping things up!

  18. Davis February 20, 2014


  19. Sandra February 20, 2014

    I like the video 🙂

  20. C-mo February 20, 2014


  21. Molly February 20, 2014

    The video was ok. i love that she always brings comedy into to her vids

  22. Mimi carey February 20, 2014

    Drunk in Love doesn’t have a chance of going number 1 now.

  23. RIHANNA stated to CIARA, “Good luck with booking that stage you speak of, you FLOP B*tch”. I see no lies..LOL February 20, 2014

    It’s cute, it’s entertaining.

  24. Mimi carey February 20, 2014

    Katy P has great videos her weakest one imo is I kissed a girl and that was her first video so the budget wasn’t much.

  25. My Forehead Tho February 20, 2014

    Very nice video.

    Also congrats on having the most #1 pop songs on billboard. And doing it with only 3 albums and without taking credit for other peoples songs.

  26. Benji February 20, 2014


  27. Benji February 20, 2014

    She is not funny.

  28. Kim Kardashian stan February 20, 2014

    Katy has released 2 videos since Roar and Gaga hasn’t released none since Applause mind you applause video came out before roar video.

  29. Benji February 20, 2014

    I will give her credit for shitting on egotistical T***** Caca this era tho.

  30. Bey Fan February 20, 2014

    One of the most entertaining videos I’ve seen in a long time.

    I wont over analyze it and take credit away from what is a very very nice visual.

    Katy always delivers with videos. I was disappointed with Roar, but this was nice. Looks like Dark Horse will be slaying the charts for another week

  31. The Boy Toy February 20, 2014

    Very nice!

  32. C-mo February 20, 2014

    LOL. U funny

  33. JOHNVIDAL February 20, 2014

    I like the video. Roar video was not good to me, but this one is.
    On the other hand I give Katy Perry´s album a 5 out of 10. Mediocre. Dark Horse is the best song. She can´t sing without studio magic either.

  34. LTM February 20, 2014

    @Queen of Shade
    Katy cant sing? Look up any performance of The One That Got Away or Not Like The Movies live.

    has no s** appeal? Explain why Maxim Magazine named her the hottest woman on the planet in 2010? (Chances are you are gay so your opinion is irrelevant)

    Katy hasn’t grown as an artist? Even the haters can spot the growth between Teenage Dream and Unconditionally. In fact, most of the praise for Prism was for her growth as artist.

    Katy writes all of her music, can play the guitar, and can sing. You claimed Britney could sing in her prime? Seriously? That comment alone discredits everything you wrote above. A stadium of seats awaits you.

  35. Electric Lady February 20, 2014

    This song is supposed to ‘urban’ I have yet to hear it on urban radio or being used by the urban community.

  36. Belladonna February 20, 2014

    The thing that makes Katy a good Pop Artist is she knows what her fans want & she gives it to them. I wish Gaga would have done that. Katy Job is to give good fun singles with colorful & funny videos & this vid does that. Gaga job was to get bigger & better ever year, I wanted her to but she didn’t but Katy is getting better every year so I guess it is what it is.

  37. QueenMinaj February 20, 2014


  38. Truth Tea February 20, 2014

    I like Katy better than Lady who…

  39. TeenageDreamer February 20, 2014

    Beyonce wishes she could.

  40. Kim Kardashian stan February 20, 2014

    Lmao i feel bad foe Beyonce she won’t be getting a number 1 hit.

  41. Stephy Tha Lambily February 20, 2014

    Juicy J did the damn thing with that BEAT!

    Anyways, she always has some of the best visual videos ever. All her videos are great.

  42. BEYISKING (MRS. CARTER SHOW 2014 TONIGHT!!!) February 20, 2014

    On to more important news…The Mrs. Carter Show starts any minute from now. Saajdhusgduwgewqhgewvhjdf. The slayage. We are not worthy. Watch my fave become the highest paid black entertainer of ALL TIME.

  43. Lady Germagonorrhea February 20, 2014

    Katy Perry is not pretentious. She isn’t calling her work as an “art”. Unlike one artist who is constantly screaming an “art” but the fact is…her “art” is a pure garbage !!!


  44. Queen of shade February 20, 2014

    Yes honey BRITNEY COULD SING at the beginning of her career she was no Whitney,Christina, Or you call that
    Singing? Wow the standards are hitting All time low lol her performance at the Ellen degeneres has to be
    The worse performance of all time she always has to used visuals so people don’t focus on her horrible voice
    Secondly you call that growth?’ Making corny ass music videos? Same thing for teenage dream
    Same bubblegum pop sound walking on air,roar the same basic songs Corny videos lol is that what you called growing as an
    Artist? Lmaoo please sit down and secondly just because ONE magazine calls
    You hot doesn’t mean you have s** appeal she can have all the hits in the world that doesn’t
    Make you talented true talent prevails that’s why she would
    Never get a Grammy because she has no talent no creativity nothing besides idk her boobs maybe lol

  45. JOHNVIDAL February 20, 2014

    Girl! But true artists need to evolve and display their talents hun. And they usually are rewarded in the long run, while these less talented of-the-moment stars are usually forgotten in one decade or two for the same reason they were so listened to at their peaks.

  46. Sandra February 20, 2014

    Lmao Beyonce will never be the highest paid black entertainer of all time, keep dreaming. Her sales are average, shes not even in the top 50 best selling artists

  47. Shaytan February 20, 2014

    This video is offensive and a mockery of my culture! Get your own culture stop stealing ours. I forget tacky Americas have no culture.

  48. Stephy Tha Lambily February 20, 2014

    This song needs to go number 1.

    How many number 1 hits Katy has?

  49. Kim Kardashian stan February 20, 2014

    Katy has the best visuals of any artist.

  50. Shaytan February 20, 2014

    You type like the dumb kid you are.

  51. Kim Kardashian stan February 20, 2014

    Katy next album should be a visual album tbh

  52. Navy Nick February 20, 2014

    @ SHAYTAN (she is Canadian); this video is cute, the song tho, I just cannot understand what is so “good” about it, IDK what the song even means…like ehat is she talking about…THE MEDIOCRE POPCORN HOT 100 SLAYAGE!

  53. Kim Kardashian stan February 20, 2014

    @Stephy it is number 1 she has 9

  54. Iconic cici February 20, 2014

    I already know its either Gaga or Beyonce fans leaving negative comments there the only ones who can’t stand to see another chick get shine other than they favs. This video is epic the song is dope we are looking at the future Queen of pop right now.

  55. Kitty February 20, 2014

    Mother Slayte, i see you love this vid.

  56. Iconic cici February 20, 2014

    I live for the Egyptian theme shes so gorgeous.

  57. The Boy Toy February 20, 2014

    What? Katy is not Canadian. She is from California…

  58. Stephy Tha Lambily February 20, 2014


    I love Beyonce but she will NEVER become the richest black entertainer of all time.

    1.) She still has not surpassed her husband or Sean Combs..

    2.) Michael Jackson net worth is well over 1+ billion! So, sit…

  59. My Forehead Tho February 20, 2014

    What people fail to realize is some artist have to release albums every year for almost a decade, take credit for other artist songs, and release 3xs more songs than their peers to accomplish what Katy did with just 3 albums.


  60. LTM February 20, 2014

    Britney Spears cant sing. She never could and never did. End of conversation. Prism showed growth as an artist, according to all the critics. Their opinion>>>yours. You are irrelevant.

  61. Kimbella February 20, 2014

    ^^^^@MyForehead Death at you always throwing subliminal Rihanna shade when you should be worried about getting Drunk in love to number 1 How Katy song been number 1 for 3 weeks without a video and Drunk in love couldnt get there without a video.

  62. The Boy Toy February 20, 2014

    A Beyonce stan talking about taking credit for other peoples work? LMAO! The shade writes itself.

  63. Kimbella February 20, 2014

    @MyForehead what you fail to realize is your life is a piece of s*** your existence on this s*** is Rihanna you are more concerned about her then the person you claim you stan for which is Beyonce.

  64. Jdek February 20, 2014

    I like it and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE QUEEN THE …ONE AND ONLY…RIHANNA! Enjoy ther cake cake cake cake cake cake.

  65. Molly February 20, 2014

    I hate Tamar but id never dedicate my account to her that’s something that lowlifes like @MyForehead does. @Kimbella @boytoy

  66. Slayty Perry (Prismatic Tour) February 20, 2014

    Kiii @Queen of Shade trying it!! Britney use to be able to sing? Lmao!!! Of all the mess I’ve read on TGJ, that has to be the funniest of them all!!! Show me the Carfax of vocal prodigy Ms.Spears. I’ll be waiting 😉

  67. Molly February 20, 2014

    Death when could Britney sing? Katy sings live unlike Britney

  68. Molly February 20, 2014

    Stephy your a lamb again? Lmao the flip flopping is real

  69. The Boy Toy February 20, 2014

    @Molly he exposed himself as a troll awhile back. He was trolling as a navy LMAO!

  70. Molly February 20, 2014

    @TheBoytoy death i just dont see how someone can hate someone yet live thru them Lmao

  71. My Forehead Tho February 20, 2014

    Lol well damn tell me how you really feel.

    Though she’s a single artist, I can’t even fathom how many albums she would have sold by the time she works on her 7th album, I’m sure it will be more than 10 million tho.

  72. RDK February 20, 2014

    First song and video i ever seen Katy on the s*** side like this in my opinion. and i do like the song and video.

  73. Stephy Tha Lambily February 20, 2014

    Speaking of Miss Britney Spears…

    I was listening to her debut album & I almost threw up! I cannot believe 13 million people in USA purchased that TRASH!

    The only big hit on it was Baby One More Time (which was written for TLC)! The whole bubble gum era between 1999 – 2001 was the worst time in music history until now!

  74. RDK February 20, 2014

    I still love E.T. more though.

  75. Perry Power February 20, 2014

    Another vintage Katy Perry music video. The humor always seen in her craft sets her apart from the other pop stars. I love it! This is my favorite video from the era so far! Love the Egyptian elements and imagery! Another great video! She should release a music video collection DVD, I think it would sell well. I wonder how this years VMAs are going to shape up.

    @Queen of Shade
    How can you have the audacity to degrade Katy’s talent and praise Britney in the same comment?? It’s one thing to try to claim Flopney Spears is talented, but to use her to put down an actual artist is insane. That flop could never sing and she hasn’t been able to dance in over a decade. She’s just an industry puppet created to be the bubble gum pop market’s Janet Jackson. She is the definition of talentless and manufactured. Katy Perry is a musician by every definition of the word. She writes all her music, plays an instrument, has creative control over her sound and image, and recently started producing her own music. Britney is incapable of doing all of the above. Delusion is truly a requirement to support Britny huh?

  76. MCSWT February 20, 2014

    MCSWT set list so far

    Now she’s performing DIL!!

  77. Queen of shade February 20, 2014

    Lol you know never in my response did I say that britney
    Spears was this incredible singer because she isn’t at all and yes
    Of course she’s gotten lazy she can’t dance like she used but in her hay
    Day she gave a hell of show and you guys are Insulting the really truly musicians out there comparing
    Katy perry to them…Katy perry is a pop entertainer that’s it and she co writes her music roar was not fully
    Written but you guys are fans of Katy so I can’t be mad are you guys for a mistaking a musician a with a mere pop
    Singer that no one takes serious

  78. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT February 20, 2014

    It was O.K I guess….

  79. Barb B**** February 20, 2014

    @My Forehead Tho. Your shade is classic sis!

  80. Skyfall February 20, 2014

    I would of liked the music video better if it were of a darker theme but kept the same
    Elements. Like the dudes trying to impress her but having her look more evil
    Would asde the video even better

  81. JER February 20, 2014

    I AM SCREAMINGGGG!!!!! This is pure garbage! WTF happened?!? The concept is great, the costumes are great…. yet the video looks like a cheap hot corny kindergarten mess. Oh wait, it’s Katy Perry. Carry on. But no, this video should have been much darker, not a complete cheezefest with bad visuals. And after the AMAZING “Unconditionally” video too. This is a flop. The song is still great tho.

  82. TRUTH February 20, 2014

    Y’all Shade Gaga but love this gimmick?? Y’all claim Gaga copies yet Katy ripped this from MJ’s Remember The Time video.
    I CANNOT………. The minds of the youth are destroyed. True Talent gone… Forever

  83. Perry Power February 20, 2014

    @Queen of Shade
    The genre of music is irrelevant. A musician by definition is someone who composes music. Katy is credited first on all her songs, meaning she writes the majority of the songs. She plays the guitar, also a requirement to be a musician. She has also started co-producing her music. It doesn’t matter what you think of her music, by all definitions, Katy Perry is a musician. If you call bad lip syncing to even worse music while dancing to recycled Janet Jackson choreography a “hell of a show” then that defines your musical opinions even more so then claiming Flopney used to be able to sing lol!

  84. Perry Power February 20, 2014

    The only thing this and MJ’s videos have in common are Egyptian elements/imagery. Literally nothing else is the same. I don’t remember that video being about Cleopatra having men come to win her heart and being turned into things. He wasn’t the first to have an Egyptian themed video and he wont be the last. The irony in you calling Katy a gimmick while defending Gaga. I cant even.

  85. Queen of shade February 20, 2014

    Lmao if calling Katy a musician makes you sleep better at night the so be it
    Lol but it’s more than obvious that Katy is far from being a musician lol
    And just so you know do you how many artist has janet Jackson influence with her choreography? You
    Sound stupid as hell but I don’t expect you to know better since you stan for a basic non talented entertainer lol
    And putting your name in a song or in the production doesn’t make you a musician…..if you can tell
    Me something spectacular about Katy perry then maybe I can give her credit lol everything is already been done
    The sad thing that if could at least had some talent then maybe people will the take her serious but she’s not sponge anything that’s innovative or that hasn’t been done fact is she can’t sing or dance or anything you take the good beats and the good producers and what do you have a basic non talented pop star so yea lol have a sea cause there’s nothing katy perry is doing that hasn’t been done so you can have many seats.

  86. Rihboy February 20, 2014

    Not here for her force fed illuminati commercial music visuals! Nothing about this relates to the true meaning of dark horse! Try again.

  87. My Gums Tho(aka Teacher) February 20, 2014

    TRASH! OH and the video is cute but BORIBG AS F***!

  88. HIMEROS February 20, 2014

    The he’ll?

    I always wonder what the actual F is up with the American GP and how they flock to support this basic Mess? She’s almost 30 and acts like she’s 12?

    Go play dress up with someone else’s culture! I don’t remember pharos being strippers! The au

  89. Queen of shade February 20, 2014

    I agree she’s a mess I can see this basic mess getting a mtv video vanguard
    Award but she would never get a tribute at the Grammys like Aretha or WhItney
    I see Beyonce and Christina getting one eventually In the future

  90. HIMEROS February 20, 2014

    The irony of Katy killing her cartoon Teenage Dream image at the start of PRISM era when her image is becoming more childish and cheesy.

  91. My Gums Tho(aka Teacher) February 20, 2014

    And DEATH @ John Legend being #1 on ITunes blocking Trashy Perry even AFTER her video release! Yaaasssss John Legend Slaaaay!

  92. FutureCIARA February 20, 2014


    This was not okay, It was very silly and childish, She could have kept it!

  93. Mark111 February 20, 2014

    This song will be #1 for a while now. A white egyptian is pretty silly tho. The conspiracy nuts are gonna have fun with this one.

  94. anonymous February 21, 2014

    Nice video and song. Good Job Katy.

  95. h2o February 21, 2014


  96. Bri Bri February 21, 2014

    This Song Is So Awesome, and This Video Is Amazing. F*** Off All U Envious D***** Bags. Katy Is Winning, While Ur Lame-O-Artists Are Gasping For Breath, and New Ideas! Shut Up U Envious People! Katy Has Many Fans Across The Globe, and Could Care Less About Ur Negative Comments! It’s Beyond Funny How U Can All Throw Shade, But The Fact Remains KP Is A #1 Selling Artist. STFU With Ur Hate. Go Somewhere Else, and Spew Ur Venom Because KP Is On Top!

    Bye Basic B******!

  97. HIMEROS February 22, 2014

    Soz bri bri but nothing about k*unty Perry is on point? She sings like a goat in heat, can’t dance, can’t pole dance and can’t act her age. She can’t even get a Grammy. Lol
