Juicy J Says Katy Perry Requested Reworking Of His "Dark Horse" Verse

Juicy J calls Katy Perry a "genius" and adds that "everything she does is like grade A."

Juicy J says Katy Perry asked him to change the lyrics to his original verse on their Dr. Luke-produced collaboration "Dark Horse," which the duo performed at this year's Grammy Awards.  

"I did my verse in the studio, and then [Dr. Luke] called me," Juicy J said in an interview with Billboard. "[He] said, 'Hey man, she wants you to change up a couple bars, so she wants to meet you in the studio.' So I jumped in my car, drove fast as I could to get to the studio. I got to the studio before she came. I fixed up all the bars, she came in, [and] she loved it. The rest is history. She's super professional. She's a genius."

Juicy J also announced that the pair worked on a music video for the selection. 

"It's a movie," Juicy J said. "It's a major motion picture. I can't really tell you because it's definitely going to be a surprise, but I'll tell you this much right here: you've seen her other videos, this one's gonna be just as big. Everything she does is like grade A."

    I honestly only like this song because the bass Slaps.lots of bass and lots of alcohol mix very well.

  • JuFu

    If you're talking about him being a solo artist, it is waaaayyy too early calling him a one-hit wonder. His new CD just came out last year. Not even a year old and already labeling Juicy J that? Lmfao.

  • JuFu

    Juicy J a one-hit wonder? Nope. You forgetting Three 6 Mafia? Juicy J being a solo artist is finally taking off. His 1st two LP's were a flop but this time it's different. Even if he doesn't find success on his own, which I don't think he will have a problem with, he still has Da Mafia 6ix to go by. You saying Juicy J is a one hit wonder is completely false. He's been making hits with Three 6 Mafia since Tear Da Club Up'97.

    This beat is stolen from DJ Butcher --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H658BRb0_q4. So similar.

    • SMH

      First of all, both beats are simple as fuck and use very commonly used notes. You act like its a genius beat. Put Katy Perry on it though and it'll blow up just because of who she is. Nobody stole anything.

    "His first #1 hit being a shitty pop song where he's not the lead artist. Your story is a lie. Katy's last singel didn't bomb, she doesn't need help from a guy who can't even get a Top 40 single by himself." Juicy J's verse in a pop song is still bringing people in. Her single did bomb by her standards if you follow up no.1 hits with a no.14 hit. Hiphop songs usually don't chart that high but juicy j has top 10 hits on the hiphop charts. Bounce It went gold and bandz a make her dance was also a huge hit. COllege anthem. There's a reason why they choose dark horse instead of another perry solo.

      I didn't even say anything about 50 Cent or his music, you idiot. And I'm not hating, I'm speaking the truth. Bounce It flopped and Juicy J can't make a hit song by himself. You made up that link, BTW.

      Look at ANonymous's bitch logic. He thinks that My life with 50 (which hasn't been certified at all) is a huge hit just because it charted higher but calls bounce it (which went gold), a flop just because it charted lower. That is true hate right there coming out of this guy's mouth.

      http://www.riaa.com/goldandplatinumdata.php?artist=%22Bounce+It%22 Here's the site just in case you're too lazy to look it up. Also, it doesn't matter if they were not his songs. He still appeared on them. I know you hate juicy j but don't let hate cloud facts.

      "He's not a one hit wonder. He also had bounce it (which went gold), 23 (which went gold) and now dark horse (which went platinum.) WHo cares if there were other people. It was still a hit, a bigger hit than collard greens with schoolboy q and kendrick." Wrong. Juicy J IS a one hit wonder. Bounce It is not a hit, 23 and Dark Horse are not his songs and were successful because of two white pop singers. "Oh, I'm sorry. Bounce it did indeed go gold 23's about to at least, and dark horse is platinum. I don't know why Unconditionally disappointed but Juicy J must be doing things right." None of this is true at all.

No matter how many excuses you make, Juicy J is still a one-hit wonder. Bandz A Make Her Dance is his only hit song and it's all thanks to Wayne and 2 Chainz.

    "She's a genius" This word gets thrown around way too often. Katy Perry a genius now?? Does she even write her own songs?

  • Anonymous

    Juicy J about to have his 1st no.1 hit. The truth of that story is that Dr Luke advised him to tone down his attitude. Turns out Katy Perry preferred him just the way he was. After Perry's last single bombed (when the rest went top ten at least), she needed more help than ever and Juicy J came to save the day.

      "Bandz a make her dance still became a hit, no matter how many rappers were on it. Same thing with 23. Also, look at the RIAA site and they will tell you bounce it went gold. It was only at 80 on billboard 200 but it still went gold. Katy did bomb with her last single, quit dickriding her. She may be sexy but there's no need to become overly defensive of her." This only proves that Juicy J needs help making a hit. Without Miley Cyrus, 23 would have tanked. Again, Bounce It flopped and is not a hit. Once again, Katy did not bomb at all. I'm not dickriding anyone at all. If anyone's dickriding, it's you riding for Juicy J.

      "cant get a top 40 single by himself" hmmm the original bands a make her dance (not the remix) was def top 40. Ur a dumbass. Regardless Juicy j is on EVERYTHING right now. U dont need 2 have solo shit 2 make a top 40 record. U cant lie that the reason 23 did so good was ONLY bcuz of Juicy J. He made that song fit 2gether. N i dont even listen 2 that pop shit" Keyword SOLO. Bandz A Make Her Dance didn't become a hit until Wayne and 2 Chainz hopped on the remix. And, no. 23 is shit and the only reason it did well is because of Miley Cyrus. "Bounce it went gold. Slow Burner but still a hit. Meanwhile, perry was coming off of a bomb and needed help she could get. I suspect drake will be on her next single." No, it didn't. Bounce It tanked on the charts, so it's not a hit. Katy didn't bomb and doesn't need help. She doesn't need some B-list rapper to make a hit. Her next hit won't have any rappers.

      @Will Steel Also, Bounce it went gold. Slow Burner but still a hit. Meanwhile, perry was coming off of a bomb and needed help she could get. I suspect drake will be on her next single.
