Jason Derulo Swalla Description

Jason Derulo Swalla: “Swalla” is a song by American singer Jason Derulo featuring rappers Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign, released on February 24, 2017, by Warner Bros. Records. The song was written by Derulo, Minaj, Dolla $ign, Ricky Reed, LunchMoney Lewis, Robert Diggs, Jacob Kasher Hindlin and Russell Jones. The song was originally intended to be the first single from Jason Derulo’s fifth studio album, then titled 777.

Jason Derulo Swalla Background and release

Derulo previewed “Swalla” in a video posted in August 2016. He officially announced it as a single on January 2, 2017. “Swalla” premiered on February 23, 2017, and was released for digital download on iTunes Store the next day. While talking about the song on the red carpet of the 59th Grammy Awards, Derulo said;

“I never believe in forcing a collaboration. You know, I’m a fan of both of theirs and I thought that they fit the track perfectly. It’s one of those ones that’ll get you up and doing your thing. I feel like it’s gonna stick out on the radio. There’s nothing that sounds like it.”

Parts of the chorus are created as an interpolation of ODB’s song “Shimmy Shimmy Ya”.

On May 12, 2017, the trio released “Swalla (After Dark Remix)”, a slow-paced acoustic remix of the original song. In an interview with The Fader Derulo said about the remix: “It was so nice we had to do it twice! The original version is the ultimate club track, so the idea was to give people the flip side of the song. The subject matter and melody is so sexy, but you might miss the ‘sexy’ in all the fun of ‘Swalla.’ So, After Dark is on the opposite side of the spectrum and is SURE to set the mood.”

Jason Derulo Swalla Critical reception

Justin Ivey from XXL wrote that Minaj “comes through to close out the track with bars that steal the show”. Joshua Espinoza of Complex wrote that “Jason and Ty handle their verses nicely, but Nicki is definitely the star”, also saying that the song “definitely has potential”. Rap-Up also praised Minaj’s verse saying that she “anchors the track with a third and final verse that many will likely assume is another thinly-veiled jab at Remy Ma”. Hilary Hughes from MTV News wrote that this is a “steamy number that has all three chiming in over a wobbly beat that would feel right at home on the floor of a beach club in the Caribbean”.

[Intro: Nicki Minaj]
Drank
Young Money

[Verse 1: Jason Derulo]
Love in a thousand different flavors
I wish that I could taste them all tonight
No, I ain’t got no dinner plans
So you should bring all your friends
I swear that a-all y’all my type

[Pre-Chorus: Jason Derulo]
All you girls in here, if you’re feeling thirsty
Come on take a sip ’cause you know what I’m servin’, ooh

[Verse 2: Ty Dolla $ign]
Shimmy shimmy shimmy yay, shimmy yah
Bad girls gon’ swalla-la-la
Bust down on my wrist in this bitch
My pinky-ring bigger than his
Met her out in Beverly Hills, ay
Dolla got too many girls, ay
Met her out in Beverly Hills
All she wear is red bottom heels
When she back it up, put it on the Snap
When she droppin’ low, put it on the Gram
DJ poppin’, she gon’ swallow that
Champagne poppin’, she gon’ swallow that

[Pre-Chorus: Jason Derulo]
All you girls in here, if you’re feeling thirsty
Come on take a sip ’cause you know what I’m servin’, ooh

Bad gyal no swalla nuttin, word to the Dalai Lama
He know I’m a fashion killa, word to John Galliano
He copping that Valentino, ain’t no telling me “no”
I’m that bitch, and he know, he know
How y’all wifing these thots? You don’t get wins for that
I’m having another good year, we don’t get blimps for that
Pussy game still cold, we don’t get minks for that
When I’m poppin’ them bananas, we don’t link chimps for that
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
My shit slappin’ like dude did LeBron’s nuts
