Did a Christian Rap Song Inspire Katy Perry's Hit "Dark Horse?" A Jury Thinks So...

By

On Monday, July 29th, a Los Angeles jury has found Katy Perry guilty of copyright infringement after it was decided that the beat of her 2013 hit song "Dark Horse"  was too similar to that of Christian rapper Flame’s song, “Joyful Noise." 

According to Variety, Katy wasn't present during the verdict's decision, which came five years after Flame and his two co-authors filed their lawsuit. Not only was Katy found guilty of "stealing" the song, but so was her producer, Capitol Records, and rapper Juicy J, who was featured on the track.
