Nicki Minaj Links With Katy Perry on New Song “Swish Swish”
The track, which was produced by Noah “Mailbox” Passovoy, Duke Dumont and PJ “Promnite” Sledge, features an energetic instrumental and a seemingly incalculable amount of basketball references.
Describing herself as a “courtside killer queen,” Perry throws a few shots at her doubters when she sings, “A tiger/Don’t lose no sleep/Don’t need opinions/From a shell fish or a sheep/Don’t you come for me/No, not today/You’re calculated/I got your number
‘Cause you’re a joker.”
From there, the track goes to a simple, but instantly catchy hook, and from there, Nicki Minaj does what she does best: flexes on all of those who would step to the queen of the rap game.
“Pink Ferragamo sliders on deck/Silly rap beefs just get me more checks/My life is a movie, I’m never offset / Me and my amigos, no, not Offset,” she spits, serving up a dizzying display of wordplay. “Get my pimp cup, this is pimp shit, baby / I only rock with queens, so I’m making hits with Katy.”
