Jason Derulo Had No Idea Nicki Minaj Was Dissing Remy Ma On ‘Swalla’
In an interview with HipHopDX, Jason Derulo explained that he had no idea Nicki Minaj’s verse on his track ‘Swalla’ was targeting Remy Ma.
“I gave these bitches two years, now your time’s up/Bless her heart, she throwing shots but every line sucks,” Nicki rapped in the track.
“You know, it’s kinda crazy because I didn’t even expect that,” Derulo told HipHopDX. “[Her dissing Remy] didn’t even cross my mind. I didn’t [put two and two] together. To be honest, I don’t think anybody on my team or my label put that together, either. But I guess it was a combination of [“Swalla”] and the other song [“Make Love” with Gucci Mane]. I don’t really know the whole joint but I do know that her coming back with those three records was unbelievable. That’s some legendary shit.”
A day after ‘Swalla’ and ‘Make Love,’ which dropped hours apart, Remy struck back with shETHER.’ Although Derulo was blindsided by his involvement in the beef, he says it’s all good.
“It’s good for music,” Derulo said. “It makes it exciting to watch. But you know Nicki is my sister and she’s just an unbelievable talent. Some people you don’t really go after. And I think both parties held their own. Remy did her thing but what Nicki did was legendary.”
