Ice Spice Announces Collaboration with Rema .
A collaboration between Nigerian Afrobeats superstar Rema and American rapper Ice Spice has been revealed.
The 23-year-old musician sparked a lot of excitement among her followers by sharing this news on social media.
Following the leak of a song the pair allegedly wrote together, there have been weeks of rumors leading up to the announcement. She declared that the Friday release of the song “Pretty Girl” is true.
The cooperation was announced by Rema on Wednesday via X. Rema has had an unbelievable 2023 thanks to his hit tune “Calm Down,” which has achieved unprecedented global recognition.
Rema and Selena Gomez’s record-breaking song “Calm Down” received the Best Afrobeats Song award at the VMAs, defeating rival megastars and countrymen like Davido, Wizkid, and Burna Boy.
With “Pretty Girl,” Ice Spice and Rema have launched their first joint work. It is a sparkling, upbeat love song that resembles Ice’s “Boy’s a Liar Pt. 2” featuring “Dumebi,” the breakthrough song from Rema and Pink Pantheress.
Before bursting into fluttering polyrhythmic percussion, it is basic and full of beautiful synths. Ice Spice raps in one of her verses, “Haters super mad, we got them all livid/Thinking about my future. Got you all in it/Shooting for the stars, the sky has no limit.”
Rema sings “Yeah, pretty girl, me no do kiss and tell,” which serves as the song’s hook. Riot USA, a frequent partner of Ice Spice, is listed as the song’s producer.
Ice Spice hinted to the song’s release in an Instagram post on Wednesday. The song is released right before her Saturday Night Live debut, where she’ll perform as the musical guest and Pete Davidson will host the show’s first episode since it was suspended in May due to the writers’ strike.
Young pop artists ICE SPICE AND Rema both enjoyed successful careers. Spotify revealed last month that Rema and Selena Gomez’s “Calm Down” remix was the first African artist to lead a tune to one billion streams.
The same night Ice Spice won Best New Artist with songs like “Princess Diana” with Nicki Minaj and “Karma” with Taylor Swift under her belt, he and Selena Gomez also accepted the first MTV VMA for Best Afrobeats in September.
Ice Spice admitted to Rolling Stone last year that she was embracing her status as the resident cool-girl of drill as her fame was soaring with the widely successful breakout song “Munch.” She claimed that “Munch” was making drill more enjoyable. “It used to be a little serious and even a little violent, which is cool. I have been singing and dancing all day. But ‘Munch’ unquestionably highlighted the zesty side of it. I want everyone to believe they are evil.
