Katy Perry releases Cleopatra-themed ‘Dark Horse’ video (Video)

February 21 14:52 2014

Katy Perry has released the music video for her single “Dark Horse” feat. rapper Juicy J. The video has an Egyptian theme and it’s directed by Matthew Cullen.

This is, of course, a more modern version of the era – with Perry dancing on a stripper pole in her Cleopatra-esque costume. She entertains a bevy of female suitors who are trying to win her over, but in the end she turns them into sand using her “magic.”

“So you wanna play with magic/Boy, you should know what you’re falling for. Baby do you dare to do this? /Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse…” she sings, Us Weekly notes.

Perry performed “Dark Horse,” which is yet another single to hit No. 1. on the Billboard Hot 100, at the BRIT Awards in London on Wednesday.

Billboard reports “Dark Horse” is Perry’s ninth No. 1 single and her second from her newest album Prism, which is her third studio album. “Dark Horse” follows the success of her first single off the album, “Roar.”
