IF you adjusted them for the same key (which is more fair to compare), "Dark Horse" would be:

C C C C
B B
A
E

Closer. The beat itself sounds like Joyful Noise ripping off a generic Southern rap snap-style beat. Nothing particularly new about that that I can tell. The only thing that gives me pause is the "yeah, y'all know what it is" at the start of the Katy Perry song and the "You know what it is" at the Christian rock song. That, to me, makes me doubt the claim that no one among the songwriting or production crew had heard the Flame song before.
