Premiere: Katy Perry takes over Egypt in 'Dark Horse' music video

Pop singer Katy Perry premiered the music video for her single "Dark Horse" on Thursday. In the new vid, she searches for a suitor in the sands of Egypt.

"Dark Horse" is the third single from Perry's latest album Prism. Her trap-tastic pop tune with rapper Juicy J hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart earlier this month. It follows fellow No. 1 hit "Roar," and the heartfelt ballad, "Unconditionally."

Perry is never one to skimp on a good music video. "Dark Horse" is another extravagant, yet kooky clip in her arsenal. As the urban queen, Perry tries to find a suitor in Egypt with somewhat comical results. All the men that approach Katy's throne come with various offerings like jewelry and Hot Cheetohs. It's never enough though, and she turns the rejects into sand. Juicy J later appears in a cool cameo where he comes out of a sarcophagus.

Perry's Prism album was released in October 2013 and it peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's albums chart.
