Ice Spice collaborates with artists from across the spectrum of hip hop and dancehall. Her latest collab is with one of the UK’s newest rappers, PinkPantheress. Her music often blends reggae with hip-hop, dubstep and more to create a unique sound that’s influenced by her Jamaican roots but that still speaks to the modern generation.
The Munchkin came a long way
Her first viral hit, “Munch (Feelin’ U),” made her a name to watch, and she continues to build on that momentum with her debut EP, Like.?, which features her breakout singles and new songs – including the latest, “In Ha Mood” – produced entirely by executive producer RIOTUSA. The Bronx native’s first project is home to three new infectious bangers – “Gangsta Boo with Lil Tjay,” “Princess Diana” and the aforementioned “In Ha Mood” – along with a Y2K-inspired drill love song, “I Need A Girl Part 2.”
With 142k+ video creations on TikTok and 3.5 million streams in the first week of its release, “In Ha Mood” has already proven itself to be a powerhouse anthem that will surely continue to go viral for years to come. As for her latest single, it’s a high-energy track that combines a breakbeat-laden vibe with Stateside rap in order to get fans into the dance floor.
The lit collab
She teamed up with UK rap star PinkPantheress on a sexy, high-energy version of the track. The two hip hop artists are known for their diverse styles, which make them a perfect fit on the record.
The pair’s chemistry is clear on this record, with PinkPantheress’ breakbeat-laden vibes complemented by a fiery Stateside rap style. It’s a sexy, high-energy track that combines a beat and lyrics that are equal parts provocative and irreverent.
This track is a great example of how rappers can combine their own style with that of an established rap artist. It’s an excellent way for Ice Spice to show off her versatility, and it also showcases how she can connect with her fans on a deeper level than just a pop hit.
On the track, she tells her story about getting into rap – from her first experience hearing her mother’s rap album when she was young to her time at SUNY Purchase rapping over beats provided by producer RIOT. She’s a true MC, and the track has a lot of potential to become her biggest hit yet.
Style you can’t ignore
Her rap style is more aggressive and street than most MCs’, so she’s got to work to get the message out about her life in the hood. She’s gotten a lot of support from her local community, but she also needs to continue building her brand and getting more exposure outside of New York City.
She’s currently working on her full-length album, which will likely be released this year. The album will include all of her viral hits and a few new songs, as well as an album of cover songs that she recorded in high school.
She has had a lot of success in the short time she’s been on the scene, so it’s no surprise that she’s getting some major collaborations from big names in the rap world. She recently hung out with Nicki Minaj’s Young Money brother, Drake, and she’s worked with Vybz Kartel and Popcaan. Besides her collaborations with these artists, she’s also been featured on many other popular tracks and has a strong fan base.
