Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry's 'Swish Swish' is a match made in...whatever this is!

Katy Perry has a new album, Witness, on the way, and from the sounds of things it's going to be a very hip-hop-centric affair. Her new track "Swish Swish" features Nicki Minaj, and not unlike her recent Migos and Lil Yachty collaborations, Perry is really throwing herself into the rap mix.

A genre-bender like Nicki makes sense as a collaborator for Perry as she volleys back-and-forth between her singing and rapping on the track. Nicki's been on such a wave of good press recently, from paying off random fans' student loan debts to the announcement that she's opening Sunday's 2017 Billboard Music Awards, that it's somewhat surprising she's trying to keep her beef with Remy Ma alive.

That's right, as if pulling Ellen Degeneres into the beef's crossfire wasn't enough, now Katy's been lumped into the feud, with Nicki's verse concluding "I only f*** with Queens / So I'm makin’ hits with Katy."

Witness is schedule to drop on June 9. The Nicki-Remy beef is not expected to be dropped anytime soon.
