Jason Derulo, Nicki Minaj And Ty Dolla Sign Vibe Out On The “Swalla” (After Dark Remix)

Now that’s more like it.

Now that’s more like it.

Jason Derulo enlisted Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign for his new song “Swalla.” It did its thing, but never really took off despite its infectious hooks and intoxicating Caribbean-flair.

Back to the drawing board.

Derulo and his co-collaborators breathed new life into the song with the delicious “After Dark Remix” of it. They stripped away the quirky production and replaced it with a menacing piano melody and dripping beats. It works far better with Derulo’s searing vocals.

“I never do remixes for features & have never done an acoustic version for anything officially,” Nicki wrote on Instagram. “When I tell u this **** right here is HARD AF!!!!!!!!!!!! This **** is a fkng VIBE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
