The singer has desribed the Juicy J-assisted new track as having a 'witchy, spell-y kind of black magic-y idea.'
Katy Perry has released a new "Prism" track on iTunes. The track, which features guest vocal from Memphis rapper Juicy J, was produced by professional hitmakers Dr. Luke and Max Martin.
Perry has told fans that the song isn't a new single to follow up latest hit "Roar". "Not new single, just apart of a PRISM PREVIEW!" Perry explained on Twitter. The new track features Perry belting out the song over the high-pitched synths and drum loops.
"So you wanna play with magic/ Boy, you should know whatcha falling for/ Baby do you dare to do this/ Cause I'm coming atcha like a dark horse," she croons. "Are you ready for, ready for A perfect storm, perfect storm/ Cause once you're mine, once you're mine/ There's no going back."
In a recent interview with MTV, Perry described the song as having a "witchy, spell-y kind of black magic-y idea." "And the lyrics are kind of witchy and dark, as if I was a witch warning this man not to fall in love with me, and if you do know I'm going to be your last," the 28-year-old singer explained.
In other Perry news, the singer's newest single "Roar" has topped Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart, giving the girlfriend of John Mayer her tenth No. 1 single on the chart. Perry has now tied with BFF Rihanna for the most chart-topping tracks in the chart's 21-year history.
