With just a little than a few weeks away from her fifth studio album release Katy Perry gives fans something to indulge on while they wait for what’s more to come.
Hitting Twitter yesterday evening she announced that her latest track “Swish Swish” featuring Nicki Minaj would be released at midnight EST. And she delivered as promised for her fans.

This being the third single off Katy’s upcoming Witness project. It follows the lead single “Chained to the Rhythm” with Skip Marley and the Migos-assisted “Bon Appetite”. Giving us certification that this album will be nothing short of impeccable.
Nicki dabbled a little about the song on her twitter earlier in the week which sparked some rumors that she and Kathy would be performing “Swish Swish” this Sunday at the Billboard Music Awards.

Once again Nicki fires shots at Remy Ma, during the song stating “Silly rap needs just get me more checks” pressing more on to their long back and forth “Beef”. Continuing on with saying:
“All that fake love you showin’ couldn’t even disguise you
Ran? When? Nicki gettin’ tan
Mirror mirror, who’s the fairest bitch in all the land?
Damn, man, this bitch is a Stan
Muah, muah, the generous queen will kiss a fan”
Katy and Nicki are also set to appear on Clavin Harris’s upcoming Funk Wav Bounce Vol 1 project. Which will also include some highly favorable guest appearances by Big Sean, Snoop, John Legend, Travis Scott and more.
“Swish Swish” can be streamed below via Spotify. You can also find it on Apple Music and iTunes. “Witness” is set to drop June 9.
