"Swalla" premiered on February 23, 2017, and was released for digital download on iTunes Store the next day.
Parts of the chorus are created as an interpolation of ODB's song "Shimmy Shimmy Ya".
In an interview with The Fader Derulo said about the remix: "It was so nice we had to do it twice!. The original version is the ultimate club track, so the idea was to give people the flip side of the song. The subject matter and melody is so sexy, but you might miss the 'sexy' in all the fun of 'Swalla.' So, After Dark is on the opposite side of the spectrum and is SURE to set the mood."
Justin Ivey from XXL wrote that Minaj "comes through to close out the track with bars that steal the show".
Joshua Espinoza of Complex wrote that "Jason and Ty handle their verses nicely, but Nicki is definitely the star", also saying that the song "definitely has potential".
Rap-Up praised Minaj's verse saying that she "anchors the track with a third and final verse that many will likely assume is another thinly-veiled jab at Remy Ma"
Hilary Hughes from MTV News wrote that this is a "steamy number that has all three chiming in over a wobbly beat that would feel right at home on the floor of a beach club in the Caribbean".
Derulo and Ty Dolla $ign performed the song live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on April 6, 2017.
Derulo and Nicki Minaj performed the song at the Billboard Music Awards on May 21, 2017.
United Kingdom (BPI) Platinum certification with 600,000 sales.
