On this week's Hot 100 chart, Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" (featuring Juicy J) slides up one spot to the chart's summit, giving the pop star her ninth No. 1 single on the Hot 100. The latest achievement in a career checkered with ubiquitous hits like "I Kissed A Girl," "Teenage Dream," "Part Of Me" and "Roar," Perry's new No. 1 smash doubles as her least anticipated, according to its creator.
"This No. 1 is the most unexpected one I've ever had," Perry told Billboard exclusively, after the song's No. 1 chart ascent was confirmed. "'Dark Horse' has been a dark horse of a song, since August when the KatyCats voted to release it early on iTunes, before 'PRISM' even came out. I'm so thrilled and grateful to have these moments."
