Part of Me is incredibly underrated, I don't really get the disdain it seems to get sad.gif always a massive tour highlight! Swish Swish is so good too, the clear highlight of the Witness era.

Starstrukk on the other hand has always been atrocious to my ears oops

I still feel like I enjoyed 'This Is How We Do' more as an album track than as a single, but it's a good tune.

Dark Horse (feat. Juicy J)
224 points (one 20/zero 19)

Released: 17th December 2013
Peak UK chart position: 4
20 members voted for this song

Dark Horse is a song recorded by Katy Perry featuring rapper Juicy J. It was originally released on September 17, 2013, by Capitol Records as the first promotional single from Perry's fourth studio album, Prism (2013). Three months later, it was released as the third official single on December 17. Both artists co-wrote the song with its producers, Max Martin, Cirkut, and Dr. Luke, alongside Sarah Hudson. It was conceived by Perry and Hudson during a writing session in Perry's hometown of Santa Barbara, California, and Juicy J was later commissioned for a verse on the song.
"Dark Horse" combines the genres of trap and hip hop, replicating what has been described as a "Southern rap-techno mashup". The track features a minimal production, with a "seductive" and "mature" tone to Perry's vocals, while Juicy J is featured on the song's intro and rapped bridge. Perry, in interviews, said she wanted the song to have a "witchy, spell-y kind of black magic-y idea", so she wrote it from the perspective of a witch warning a man not to fall in love with her because if he does, she will be his last. The song was part of a competition sponsored by Pepsi in which fans could vote via Twitter on whether they would prefer either "Dark Horse" or "Walking on Air" to be released as the first promotional single from Prism.
