- Swish Swish is the ninth song by Nicki Minaj in the Just Dance series.
- "F**k", "b**ch", "damn", "ass", "pimp", and "sh*t" are censored. "N***a" (in the line "I’ma tell my ... Biggz, yeah that’s the guy") was already censored in the official version of the song.
- However, "b**ch" is still slightly audible the second time it is sung.
- In the game credits, the word "b**ch" in the name of Katy Perry’s publishing company, "When I’m Rich, You’ll Be My B**ch", is left uncensored, unlike how it is for all of the other songs by her (except for One of the Boys).
- The song is shortened at the second chorus.
- Swish Swish’s preview on justdancegame’s official YouTube channel currently holds the record for the preview with the most views on said channel. As of December 3, 2018, it has 3.494.995 views.
- One of the moves is taken from the viral "Backpack Kid" dance, dubbed "The Floss", from Katy Perry’s Saturday Night Live performance of the track.
- Many moves are inspired by the Vogue, using elements like the Catwalk (chorus), the Hands performance and the Dip (at the end of the routine).
- The routine is inspired by Katy Perry’s Glastonbury medley performance for the song. The outfits of the dancers resemble the backup dancer’s outfits and the choreography is inspired by the backup dancer choreography.
- The puppet heads on P2’s jacket are recycled from Chiwawa.
- Swish Swish can be seen at various points in the official music video for the song.
- One pictogram has a faint white dot on the top of it.
- In the "Behind the scenes" of Swish Swish, P1 previously wore high heels.

- Swish Swish is listed on the Just Dance Brazil website as "Swich Swich".
- On 7th-gen consoles, P2’s pose is flipped to the right instead of left on the coach selection menu.
- According to a Beta avatar used in the 7th-Gen version of the game, P4’s color scheme was a bit different: he had a black hat, pink and black feathers, a monocle with a black lens (instead of a blue-purple one), and lighter hair and beard.
- This Beta avatar also appears in the World Dance Floor for the 8th-Gen version.

- In a Behind the Scenes video, one can see an unknown mockup screenshot that features Je sais pas danser and P2 and P4 from Despacito.
- P2’s coach selection image originally had the Just Dance World Cup 2019 logo on the left. This detail has been removed in the final version.

- In one of the pictograms, a white dot can be seen slightly above P2’s arrow emblem.
- When the routine was first added on January 17, 2019, it had one-day-only free access.
- When Swish Swish was first added to Just Dance Now, the pictograms and lyrics were not synced with the video file.
- On Just Dance Now, the VIPMADE banner is different than on Just Dance Unlimited: it is pink with the dancers’s names blue instead of orange for both, and it only appears at the beginning and end of the routine.
- The banner was later updated on Just Dance Now.
