Swish swish bish. Before she hits the stage at the Billboard Music Awards, Nicki Minaj unleashes one more collaboration. This time, the rap queen teams with pop royalty Katy Perry on their smash “Swish Swish.”
Over a bouncy beat produced by Noah “Mailbox” Passovoy, Duke Dumont, and PJ “Promnite” Sledge, the Generous Queen blesses the track with her witty wordplay. “My life is a movie, I’m never offset / Me and my amigos, no, not Offset,” she raps. “Get my pimp cup, this is pimp shit, baby / I only rock with queens, so I’m making hits with Katy.”
Their collaboration is set to appear on Katy’s upcoming album Witness, due June 9. In addition to Nicki, the album has spawned the Migos-assisted “Bon Appétit” and “Chained to the Rhythm” with Skip Marley.
Nicki, who is nominated for the Billboard Chart Achievement Award, will open Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards with special guests Lil Wayne, Jason Derulo, and David Guetta. Meanwhile, Katy will perform on the season finale of “SNL” this weekend.
