Jason Derulo kicks into kaleidoscope mode for his “Swalla” video featuring Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign.

The Gil Green-directed visual for the uptempo dance track is full of eye-popping imagery. Jason and a group and dancers get down on a wet stage that punctuates their every move. “Shimmy shimmy yay, shimmy yay, shimmy ya (drank)/Swalla-la-la (drank)/Swalla-la-la (swalla-la-la)/Swalla-la-la/Freaky, freaky gyal/My freaky, freaky gyal,” he sings on the chorus.

Ty Dolla gets in the mix, crooning while surrounded by dancing ladies. Nicki shows up to close things out rocking another style of the visor she’s been seen wearing lately, rapping in an asymmetrical rainbow-colored hallway.

The track is the lead single off Derulo’s upcoming fifth solo studio album. This song has significance as one of the Nicki verses where she appeared to shade Remy Ma. On the line in question, Nicki raps, “I gave these bitches two years, now your time’s up/Bless her heart, she throwing shots but every line sucks.”

Remy of course went all the way in with her “ShETHER” diss, and followed with “Another One,” while Nicki has responded on the Drake and Lil Wayne assisted “No Frauds.”
