Katy Perry Unveils Official Art for Latest Single “Dark Horse”—Check It Out!


Katy Perry’s latest track art has officially been released.
The pop singer tweeted the abstract artwork for “Dark Horse,” her third single from her album Prism which features rapper Juicy J . Perry wrote, “ICYMI: the official ART for # DarkHorse by the talented @yaoxiaoart!”
New York-based illustrator Yao Xiao responded to Perry’s tweet with, “Thank you!! :3 have a great show in China.”
The colorful piece almost plays off of Katy’s look from the “Unconditionally” video, by dressing the animated photo of Perry in historic and regal attire. Or maybe she’s becoming that knight in shining armor that’s coming at you like a dark horse.
That would make sense.
Perry released the track on iTunes in September. The lyrics, which Katy cowrote with pal Sarah Hudson, make mentions of magic, perfect storms and Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. Juicy J spoke to MTV News about working with Katy, saying, “She’s really a genius, she was by the mixing board and telling the guy what to take in and take out. She’s really hands on with her music, she knows music.”
Fans seemed to respond well to the trap-pop creation. The track jumped into the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 this week—going from No. 11 to No. 6—and reached the top spot on the iTunes download chart on Wednesday, Jan. 8.
