Watch Katy Perry play a neon Egyptian pharaoh in her 'Dark Horse' video

Hey, kids cramming for your history exams: You can just watch a music video instead!

Katy Perry’s got a new clip for the no. 1 single “Dark Horse,” and it all goes down in a candy-colored Ancient Egypt full of bright headdresses, pierced cats, and neon pyramids.

So if Katy Perry is Cleopatra, is Juicy J her Mark Antony? Hmm, let’s go with that.

Katy Perry, Lorde, Imagine Dragons all get early post-Grammys sales boosts

If Katy Perry is actually a witch, then she certainly cast the right spell on music buyers.

Though her performance during the 56th Annual Grammy Awards was met with mixed reviews (EW loved it; the rest of the Internet was more lukewarm), Perry has the biggest post-Grammys sales bump so far.

We won’t know which albums got the biggest spikes until next week (the sales numbers close Sunday night), though a number of songs—including Perry’s “Dark Horse,” featuring rapper Juicy J—have already seen noticeable increases following their appearance on Sunday night’s show.

“Dark Horse” has been on top of the iTunes singles chart all week, and it’s the number one song on Billboard‘s Digital Songs chart (which includes Monday’s sales) this week. It sold 294,000 downloads last week, up 12 percent from last week’s tally. That boost was enough to push “Dark Horse” into the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100, which is Perry’s ninth trip to that plateau.

Other big gainers on the Billboard Digital Songs chart include Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” (up 206 percent), John Legend’s “All Of Me” (a 110 percent gain), and Pink & Nate Ruess’ “Just Give Me a Reason” (a 122 percent boost). Imagine Dragons also got a jolt with the release of the Kendrick Lamar-assisted remix of “Radioactive,” which helped the song to a 58 percent sales gain.

It’ll be interesting to see who will see their album sales boosted by the Grammys, which were watched by nearly 30 million people. Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories will almost certainly see a giant bounce, as should Lorde’s Pure Heroine, Kacey Musgraves’ Same Trailer, Different Park, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ The Heist. However, it’s entirely possible the biggest winner of the post-Grammys week could be 2014 Grammy Nominees, the compilation album that debuted at number two with 59,000 copies sold.

What music did you buy in the wake of the Grammys? Let us know in the comments.

Watch Drake's 'Worst Behavior' video, featuring cameos by his dad, Juicy J, and more

Drake may be the greatest rapper alive. Perhaps he’s also the hardest working man in show business. And when it comes to making music videos, he’s Johnny on the spot: Always ready with ideas—some great, others head-scratching, and many of them pretty damn funny.

For “Worst Behavior,” a monster of a song, he has made a sprawling 10-minute video. He calls in—or grants—a bunch of favors, creating cameos for his dad, Dennis Graham, and Juicy J and Project Pat, who feature opposite OVO crew members Ryan and O’Brien a skit that’s certainly hilarious enough to watch once: READ FULL STORY

Miley Cyrus goes wild at school in Mike Will Made It's '23' video: Watch it here

The ’90s gave birth to Miley Cyrus, and now she’s returning the favor by paying homage to the decade of Cross Colors and Saved by the Bell.

In the new Mike Will Made It clip for “23,” Cyrus parades around a high school wearing “sexy” Chicago Bulls jerseys and  vintage Jordans while making references to Naughty By Nature and MC Hammer. She smokes cigarettes, graffitis the bathroom, and generally runs amok.

Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and Zack Morris also join in on the shenanigans, all at the chagrin of the uptight school principal Mr. Belding. Just kidding! Partly.

It’s also reminiscent of another ’90s classic, Master P’s “Make ‘Em Say Uhh!” video. Take a look below: READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber flexes his lyrical skills in Maejor Ali's 'Lolly' -- VIDEO

Lolly-Justin-Bieber.jpg

Justin Bieber proves that singing, dancing, and mustache-harvesting are not his only talents in singer Maejor Ali’s video for Lolly, where he taps into his rapping alter-ego Shawty Mane.

Teaming up with rapper Juicy J, Bieber appears shirtless, flexing his chain, and delivering verses about a few things that would obviously surface in the mind of a young superstar: models, Pellegrinos and Netflix.

You think Biebs has what it takes to stand next to the lyrical greats? Check out the video below: READ FULL STORY

Katy Perry brings in Juicy J on new 'Prism' track 'Dark Horse': Hear it here

When she first broke out, Katy Perry was something of an underdog — brought up in the often-maligned Christian-music scene and sidelined by several false starts at mainstream major labels.

Now, of course, she’s a reigning champ, as her sterling singles track record and “Roar”-related imagery will remind you.

Still, perhaps she still sees herself as a dark horse — which happens to be the name of the new Prism song that found its way onto the Internet this morning.  The trap-friendly track was produced by Dr. Luke and Max Martin and features a guest verse by Oscar-winning rapper Juicy J (who between this and his awesome stripper-approved album Stay Trippy is putting up an MVP-esque performance in 2013).
