The 30-second trailer reveals that the upcoming video will tell the story of men trying to win the heart of 'a magic queen in Memphis, Egypt.'
The music video for Katy Perry's latest single "Dark Horse" is arriving soon. To build the anticipation, the singer has previewed the clip that will feature her playing the famous Egyptian beauty Cleopatra.
According to the 30-second trailer, the finished video will tell a tale of "a magic queen in Memphis, Egypt." The short teaser also reveals that "every eclipse, kids would travel from Brooklyn to Babylon to win her heart. If she fell in love, you'd be top dawg. If she didn't, her wrath would leave you whimpering."
Later in the clip, Perry appears behind the golden doors. She sits on her throne and sports black hair, giant beaded headdress, bright-colored eyeshadow and a jewel-encrusted mouthpiece. The preview ends with the announcement that the full visuals will premiere on February 20.
"Dark Horse", which Perry recorded with Juicy J, is currently ruling the Billboard 100. The track serves as the third single off her latest album "Prism". Debuting at No. 1 on Billboard 200 following its release late last year, the record is now sitting at No. 10 on the chart.
