Set to make an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America and The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday and Tuesday, respectively, Jason Derulo shifts gears, offering a a moodier redux of his “Swalla” single featuring Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign.

While the original version favored the dance floors of clubs, influenced by dancehall and Haitian Kompa, the atmosphere on the “After Dark” remix veers into a much hazier environment.

“The original version is the ultimate club track, so the idea was to give people the flip side of the song,” Jason told The Fader, who premiered 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.”
