Earlier this week Katy Perry announced her new album Witness and FINALLY we have a reason to get excited about it. For today KP delivered Swish Swish, a collab with Nicki Minaj that isn’t just the most instantly enjoyable track from the record, it’s one of her all time best. Radio ready, club ready (it was produced by Duke Dumont) and ripe for remixing, Swish Swish hits all the right notes and is packed with very quotable, tongue-in-cheek put downs. Minaj’s excellent contribution (“Mirror, mirror, who’s the fairest bitch in all the land?”) shouldn’t be understated here either as she takes the song to another level but ultimately this is Katy’s win and a much needed one after the aftertaste left by Bon Appetit.
