"Swish Swish" is a song by American singer Katy Perry featuring American rapper Nicki Minaj for Perry's fifth studio album, Witness (2017). It was written by Perry, Duke Dumont, Sarah Hudson, PJ "Promnite" Sledge, Minaj and Brittany Hazzard, while being produced by Dumont with additional production by Sledge and Noah "Mailbox" Passovoy. The song was initially released as a promotional single on May 19, 2017, and later it was quickly served as the album's third single. "Swish Swish" is a house-inspired EDM and hip hop song that samples "Star 69" by Fatboy Slim which in turn samples "I Get Deep" by Roland Clark and "What They Say" by Maya Jane Coles. Developed by Perry as a song about fighting against bullies, "Swish Swish" uses basketball metaphors to talk about overcoming hateful people and thriving. Multiple media outlets suspected that the song was a response to Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood", which was believed to be about Perry. Music critics were divided with "Swish Swish"; some praised the track's empowering environment, while others criticized its lyrics. However, Minaj's verses were applauded. Commercially, "Swish Swish" reached the top 20 in Canada, Hungary, Philippines, Poland, Scotland, and Spain as well as the top 30 in Australia, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Promotion for the track begun with a live debut of the track on Saturday Night Live, with a performance that went viral. Subsequently, Perry continue to promote the track during BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend, the 2017 Glastonbury Festival and The Voice Australia. Later, to further promote the track, a lyric video for the track, featuring Brazilian singer Gretchen, was released on July 3, 2017. The official music video, directed by Dave Meyers, premiered on August 24, 2017. Three days later, Perry and Minaj performed the track together for the first time during the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. "Swish Swish" is set to be featured in the upcoming dance video game Just Dance 2018, with its dance choreography also appearing in its music video.
