Jason Derulo Taps Nicki Minaj & Ty Dolla $ign for Caribbean Banger ‘Swalla’ [LISTEN]
Jason Derulo is back with a club banger called “Swalla” and features a hot verse from Nicki Minaj and vocal assists from Ty Dolla $ign.
Over bouncy, Caribbean-flavored beat, courtesy of producer Ricky Reed, Derulo is at the club and sees a bunch of ladies he wants to taste. "I swear that to Allah you're my type," he says before jumping into the chorus, singing, "All you girls in here, if you're feeling thirsty / Come on take a sip 'cause you know what I'm servin', ooh."
Ty Dolla follows spitting freaky lines like, "Dolla got too many girls / Met her out in Beverly Hills, all she wear is red bottom heels."
But it's the Queen Barbz who has the standout verse rapping in her Trinidadian patois and throwing a shot at a certain female rapper who tried to diss her.
"I gave these bitches two years, now your time's up / Bless her heart, she throwing shots but every line sucks / I'm in that cherry red foreign with the brown guts," she spits.
“Swalla” was produced by Grammy nominee Ricky Reed, who has executive produced projects for Meghan Trainor and Phantogram, among others. He also produced Derulo’s previous hit singles “Talk Dirty” and “Wiggle."
In an interview with Billboard, Derulo felt that Nicki and Ty Dolla were the perfect fit for "Swalla."
"I never believe in forcing a collaboration. You know I’m a fan of both of theirs, and I thought [they] fit the track perfectly," he said. "I feel like [this song is] going to stick out on radio."
"Swalla" will get its official release on Friday (Feb. 25) on iTunes and other digital services.
