Several fans have noted that Katy Perry's 'Dark Horse' is a far cry from her typical singles with upbeat tunes. 'Dark Horse' has been released as the second single from Perry's album, 'Prism'.

As opposed to the blithesome melody of 'Roar', 'Dark Horse' has a darker tone, which according to some listeners, is similar to Lorde's choir-like songs such as 'Biting Down' and 'The Love Club'.
It is likewise confirmed that John Mayer's lady love is an admirer of the 'Royals' singer. In an interview, the Auckland-born songstress says that Perry asked her to be the opening act in the world tour that will complement 'Prism'. However, Lorde turned down the opportunity thinking that it might not be apt for her career. Nonetheless, she did not stop in praising Perry's vocal talent.
Listeners cannot help but wonder about the message of the song. According to Perry, 'Dark Horse' lyrics revolve around a woman asking a man not to be bewitched by her charms: It's kind of a juxtaposition. It's got me, a pop artist, with a little bit of an urban kind of hip-hop-flavored background soundtrack to it, and the lyrics are kind of witchy and dark, as if I was a witch warning this man not to fall in love with me, and if you do know I'm going to be your last."
If 'Roar' has a jungle-themed musical video, will 'Dark Horse' make a statement by having a dramatically dark music video?
