Riff: Katy Perry – “Dark Horse”

Sep 18, 2013

Make me your Aphrodite/Make me your one and only/But don’t make me your enemy

from Dark Horse lyrics by Katy Perry

Having played it safe with the soaring power pop of “Roar,” Perry now channels the darkness of her Prism teaser with an ice-cool trap-inspired warning about her femme fatale powers which is then backed up by Juicy J‘s claims that she can “eat your heart out like Jeffrey Dahmer;” [LISTEN].
