Ice Spice broke by final summer season with “Munch (Feelin’ U).” She didn’t need to be a one-hit marvel (as she famous to Genius’ “Verified“), so she adopted “Munch” up with “Bikini Bottom” final October.
Proper now, the Bronx rapper is metaphorically on prime of the world — and literally at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 — alongside PinkPantheress with “Boy’s A Liar Pt. 2,” which she performed for the first time at Rolling Loud California earlier this month. However Ice Spice inadvertently rerouted us again to “Bikini Backside.”
“The one animated character I ever had a crush on was, like, SpongeBob,” Ice Spice stated with a giggle in a TikTok posted by MTV final week. “You realize, he’s very built-in in my life.”
Again with Genius final December, Ice Spice clarified that she “simply wished to make a lit tune,” so she “requested [producer RIOTUSA] to make me a SpongeBob-type beat, and I wasn’t really sampling SpongeBob, but it surely simply offers that vibe.”
Ice Spice’s official “Bikini Backside” lyric video from final November used the favored font related to SpongeBob SquarePants. The long-lasting Nickelodeon franchise has been going sturdy since 1999, premiering roughly six months earlier than Ice Spice was born, and Ice Spice is primed to take pleasure in the identical longevity. Even Nicki Minaj joined the bandwagon.
