Katy Perry released her newest album “Prism” in October 2013. The album is like dance pop music. It is definitely a brighter sound and less edgy and more dance pop than Katy Perry’s normal sound. The singles on the album are “Roar,” “Unconditionally” and “Dark Horse”.
“Roar” is an upbeat song about finding your inner voice. In her music video, she conveys this by being a hopeless girl stranded in the jungle who eventually conquers the wilderness.
“Unconditionally” is about unconditional love in any form, even like motherly love. It has an emotional tone. This song has a sort of transcendent beat to it, the kind that is in those intense moments in action movies.
“Dark Horse” features rapper Juicy J. It definitely has a nice hip hop beat to it. The feel of the song is indeed “dark” as intended by the title. But it still keeps Katy Perry’s signature pop sound.
