Katy Perry will release “Dark Horse” as the third single from her blockbuster Prism LP. The Juicy J-featuring trap-pop anthem was sent to pop and rhythmic radio yesterday (December 17) after it received unsolicited radio support and months of healthy download sales on iTunes.
This is a complete no-brainer. “Dark Horse” is the catchiest song on Katy’s third album and is already top 10 on iTunes without a video clip or major promo push. It really should have been the LP’s second single instead of “Unconditionally” — a move that would have kept the diva’s string of top 10 hits intact (let’s be real, this song is going to be massive).
