Still riding the high off another no. 1 single, Katy Perry has dropped the official video for “Dark Horse.”
As promised, the video is inspired by ancient Egypt, with the pop star taking on a new Cleopatra-inspired persona: Katy Patra.
Perry released a preview last week, combining the story for the video with hieroglyphics to create a unique lyric video teaser.
“Dark Horse” notched another week at no. 1 on the Hot 100 this week, squeaking past Pharrell’s “Happy” to take on the top spot for a fourth week.
Both Katy and Pharrell performed at the BRIT Awards in the U.K. on Wednesday night, with the diva giving sporting neon ancient Egyptian garb for another preview of her music vid.
Beyonce also took the stage for a performance of “XO,” along with fellow performers Lorde, Ellie Goulding and Bruno Mars.
