Pop superstar Katy Perry is showing no signs of slowing down, as she premiered her latest video, for the No. 1 single ‘Dark Horse’ on Thursday, February 20, 2014. The ‘I Kissed A Girl’ singer showed a teaser of the video last week and revealed to her fans that she will be dressed up as the Egyptian ruler Cleopatra in it. The full-length, neon-colored video is finally out and portrays the ‘Roar’ singer as a mystic queen.

In the bridge of the song, Perry asks, “So you wanna play with magic?” and a couple of arrogant kings decide to enter the game. The pop superstar can be seen sitting on her throne and gazing as different pharaohs attempt to make an impression with extravagant presents, but Perry turns them to sand, or worse.

The ‘Dark Horse’ video depicts the singer’s quirky and colorful style to a T, as it features a golden carriage with hydraulics, a number of wigs, Juicy J emerging from a sarcophagus and much more. The single is spending its fourth week at the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 chart this week and is Perry’s ninth No. 1 single and the second from her latest album ‘Prism’.

Perry performed ‘Dark Horse’ at the BRIT Awards in London, one day before the video’s official release.
