Katy Perry has given fans an insight into what to expect from her highly-anticipated album 'Prism,' by releasing a preview of the hip-hop inspired track 'Dark Horse,' which features rapper Juicy J.
Over the last week, fans have taken to Twitter to vote for the song over other album track 'Walking On Air,' and Katy has fulfilled her promise by providing a snippet of the track. The 'Part Of Me' singer has insisted that the track will not be a single, Katy tweeted:
“Again, Dark Horse ft @therealjuicyj is just a PREVIEW of #PRISM when released on Sept 17, NOT the 2nd single.”

The lyrics on 'Dark Horse' focus on the magic of falling in love unexpectedly with Katy singing: “So you wanna play with magic, Boy you should know what you're fallin' for, Baby do you dare to do this, Cause I'm comin' at you like a dark horse.”
The song boasts hip-hop influences but also has an anthemic pop hook before launching into the chorus but it does take some getting used to and while it is worthy enough of being a stand alone single, it looks as though it could remain solely as an album track.
Rapper, song writer and producer Juicy J features on the song and has previously worked with the likes of Snoop Dog, Ke$ha and Lil Wayne.
Fans are enjoying the song and have used Twitter to tell the 'California Gurl' singer what they think of the track. @victaytayp was clearly excited about the track tweting, "Dark Horse" is SICKening, holy amazeballs. That production is flawless. @katyperry Pop meets Urban Trap!”
@katysprismx_4m seemed to get fairly emotional about the song: “Actually crying at how perfect dark horse is ? I'll be an emotional wreck when I get the whole of Prism!”
However not everyone was keen on the track with @nazrieadam tweeting: “Great lyrics aside, Dark Horse is a total snoozefest @katyperry. I'm not liking PRISM era very much now.” While @Ryan13CLA1m said: “Well, Dark Horse is a weird song...”
Katy's current single 'Roar' is number one in both the US and the UK, her fourth studio album 'Prism' will be out on October 22.
