She shoots, she scores. Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj play ball on “Swish Swish,” the third track lifted from Perry’s upcoming album Witness.
Produced by Duke Dumont, the housey “Swish Swish» opens with the meaty sample which fills up Fatboy Slim’s 2000 club tune «Star 69». «Swish, swish, bish/Another one in the basket/Can’t touch this/Another one in the casket,» Katy sings.
Nicki holds up the mirror and lets fly with a rap: «Pink Ferragamo sliders on deck/Silly rap beefs just get me more checks/My life is a movie, I’m never off set.»
Witness is due to drop June 9 on Capitol Records and will include the already-released tracks “Chained To The Rhythm” and the Migos-featuring “Bon Appétit.» Perry and Minaj will team up again for the Calvin Harris tune “Soft Lips.” Listen to «Swish Swish» below.
