It’s no secret that I haven’t warmed up to “Roar” as of yet, but that just changed thanks to a hot new remix by Jump Smokers. Sure, the chorus still drives me a little insane, but at least it’s more tolerable in this new version. The sped-up vocals with the new throbbing beat elevates Perry’s chart-topper into a hot club bangin’ anthem.
In a completely different direction, Perry goes all broody in a new track off Prism. She teams up with Juicy J on the urban-tinged “Dark Horse.” The beat during the verses is everything. All you booty-shaking twerkers will be itching to drop it like it’s hot during it. This should’ve been the lead cut given that her Prism era was supposed to be darker and more mature. “Roar” wasn’t that, but “Dark Horse” lives up to the promise. Give it a listen below.
