9.23.13 - New Music - Katy Perry
It looks like Katy Perry, along with many other genre-bending artists, has gone in a completely new direction with her latest single “Dark Horse.”
This time it’s Urban.
It turns out a team-up with Juicy J makes for an excellent song. Apart from being absolutely hypnotizing in vocal quality, the mix between the pop-style build up and the hip-hop, sampled drop blend, seamlessly. Katy Perry didn’t lose her Pop identity so much as morphed hip-hop into her already established Pop sound.
And for those of you who are musically inclined, there’s a decent amount of accidentals in the song during the heavy bass part.
After hearing the first single, “Roar,” off of her upcoming Prism album, “Dark Horse” is a major turn around from the sing-along, somewhat typical concert pop song. Definitely check it out.
