Heralded by the Internet as Perry’s Taylor Swift diss track in response to “Bad Blood” off 1989, “Swish Swish” opens with:

When asked, Perry said that no one song on the album was about any one person, which checks out with “Swish Swish” because part of Minaj’s guest verse circles back to her infamous Remy Ma beef. Ruby Rose, who's a part of Swift’s inner squad, even made it a point to call out Perry on Twitter for her Witness singles:
