"Swalla" is a song by American singer Jason Derulo featuring American rappers Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla Sign. It was released on February 24, 2017, by Warner Bros. Records, as the lead single from Derulo's upcoming fifth studio album. The song was written by Derulo, Minaj, Dolla $ign, Ricky Reed, LunchMoney Lewis, Robert Diggs, Jacob Kasher Hindlin and Russell Jones.[2][better source needed]

Background and release[edit]

Derulo previewed "Swalla" in a video posted in August 2016.[3] He officially announced it as a single on January 2, 2017.[3] "Swalla" premiered on February 23, 2017,[4] and was released for digital download on iTunes Store the next day.[5] 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."[4]

Parts of the chorus are created as an interpolation of ODB's song "Shimmy Shimmy Ya".[6]

On May 12, 2017, the trio released "Swalla (After Dark Remix)", a slow-paced acoustic remix of the original song.[7] 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."[7]

Critical reception[edit]

Justin Ivey from XXL wrote that Minaj "comes through to close out the track with bars that steal the show".[8] 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".[9] 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".[10] 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".[11]

Music video[edit]

On February 24, 2017, the official lyric video for "Swalla", directed by Alex Lockett, was uploaded to Derulo's YouTube channel.[12] The music video premiered on March 17, 2017.[13] As of September 2018, the music video had received over 1.1 billion views on YouTube.

Live performances[edit]

Derulo and Ty Dolla $ign performed the song live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on April 6, 2017.[14] Derulo and Nicki Minaj performed the song at the Billboard Music Awards on May 21, 2017. Derulo performed the song at the Opening Ceremony of Pakistan Super League 2018 on February 22, 2018. On April 12, 2018, Derulo performed the song live during a medley with "Tip Toe" and "Colors" at the German Echo Music Prize.[15]
