In a thrilling development for music fans, Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice have joined forces to create a new track titled “Barbie World”. The song, which samples Aqua’s 1997 hit “Barbie Girl”, is a part of the official soundtrack for the highly anticipated Barbie film directed by Greta Gerwig.
The collaboration between the Queen and Princess of rap was first teased in May when a snippet of the song was featured in the official trailer for the Barbie film. The artists later confirmed the collaboration via an Instagram post, exciting fans worldwide.
“Barbie World” sees the rappers likening themselves to the iconic Mattel doll, with lyrics such as “And I’m bad like the Barbie…I’m a doll but I still wanna party”. The song is a celebration of the Barbie persona, with the artists embracing the doll’s fun-loving and glamorous image.
The music video for “Barbie World” is a visual treat, featuring the artists in a variety of Barbie-inspired settings. From riding through cotton candy clouds on jet skis to lounging in the Barbie Dreamhouse, the video is a playful homage to the Barbie universe.
The Barbie film, set to release on July 21, boasts a star-studded cast including Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, Simu Liu, and Michael Cera. The official soundtrack, featuring “Barbie World”, will also be released on the same day.
This collaboration marks another milestone in Ice Spice’s rapidly rising career. The Bronx rapper has been making waves in the hip-hop scene, receiving support from industry heavyweights like Drake and Nicki Minaj. Ice Spice’s recent successes include BET award nominations, collaborations with artists like Taylor Swift and Pinkpantheress, and her first-ever gold certification for “Munch”.
“Barbie World” is a testament to the artists’ creativity and their ability to create music that resonates with their audience. The song is not just a catchy tune, but a celebration of the Barbie spirit – fun, fashionable, and unapologetically fabulous. With its release, Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice have given fans a new anthem to enjoy, and a reason to look forward to the Barbie film and its soundtrack.
