WATCH: Katy Perry plays Egyptian queen, rocks an insane grill in 'Dark Horse' music video teaser
Katy Perry may have the No. 1, best selling song in the country with "Dark Horse," but the third Prism single has yet to receive an official music video or pending release date... until now. Today (Feb. 13), Perry revealed a 30-second teaser trailer for "Dark Horse," and it looks like she's harkening back to Cleopatra.
Playing the role of Katy Patra, Perry appears as a "magical queen" in Memphis, Egypt. The video largely focuses on hieroglyphic storyboards to tell the story of "Dark Horse," and it seems like Katy Patra is a highly coveted prize to be won, with kings traveling from "Brooklyn to Babylon" to compete for her heart.
In the end, we see the fabulous queen, and she's all decked out in Egyptian queen garb with a VERY ornate grill in her mouth. We're talking purple jewels, loads of diamonds and crazy ice here.
No word on who collaborator Juicy J will play in the video, but he's sure to be one of Katy Patra's many suitors.
The most, most important part, though? A release date for "Dark Horse!" According to the teaser, the highly anticipated clip will finally drop on Thursday, Feb. 20.
Watch the music video preview below:
"Dark Horse" is the third single from Katy Perry's latest studio album Prism. More importantly for the 29-year-old star, it's her ninth No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100.
