Katy Perry has teamed up with MTV and Pepsi to allow her fans to vote for her next single. The pop star has given fans two tracks to choose from to follow-up her already-gold-selling new single, “Roar”: “Dark Horse” and “Walking On Air.” Snippets of both have been made available to preview today.
“Walking On Air” is a synth-filled, glittery dance track that finds Katy singing, “Just when I think I can’t take any more we go deeper and harder than ever before/We go higher and higher/I feel like I’m already there/I’m walking on air.”
“Dark Horse,” not-so-coincidentally, is a bit darker. Katy sings, “So you wanna play with magic?/Boy, you should know what you’re falling for/Baby, do you dare to do this ’cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse/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” over an ambient production that builds into an all out twerk-worthy beat.
Our choice? Definitely “Dark Horse.” We have to see where that beat switch takes us.
Both tracks are taken from Katy’s new album, Prism, out October 22.
