Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice release “Barbie World”
On Friday (June 23), Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice dropped their latest single for “Barbie World” from Barbie: The Album, the accompanying soundtrack to the upcoming film Barbie, which arrives in theaters on July 21. This is the second musical partnership between Nicki and Spice following their last collaboration, the top-10 Billboard Hot 100 hit “Princess Diana Remix.”
Hours before Nicki dropped her duet, she posted a snippet of the music video for the song on her TikTok account. In the clip, the two New York baddies are having fun in Barbie’s dream world where they are racing each other on pink jet skis over puffy pink clouds. The dynamic rap duo spit girly rhymes over an Aqua-sampling drill beat produced by Ice Spice’s go-to hitmaker RiotUSA.
“And I’m bad like the Barbie (Barbie)/I’m a doll but I still wanna party (Party)/Pink ‘Vette like I’m ready to bend (Bend)/I’m a ten, so I pull in a Ken (Like)/Jazzie, Stacie, Nicki (Grrah)/All of the Barbies is pretty (Damn)/All of the Barbies is bad/It girls, and we ain’t playin’ tag (Grrah)” rapped Nicki and Spice on the track.
