Music Crush Monday: Nicki Minaj X Ice Spice

With Barbie takeover well underway, it should be no surprise that topping the charts is the upcoming film’s remix of the famous Aqua ‘Barbie Girl’ song with Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice putting a modern spin on the hit titling it ‘Barbie World’.

‘Barbie World’ appears as the third track on Barbie The Album. Notably, ‘Barbie World’ samples the 1997 gem ‘Barbie Girl’ from the band Aqua. Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice split duties in the chorus, which is the first major section of ‘Barbie World.’ the music video itself takes us inside the imagination we’ve all had as our Barbie’s play house, although perhaps with a different narrative as the song does lean into a more provacative tone. the music video is fresh off the Barbie Dreamhouse Architectural Digest tour from last week. this time we’re seeing the world of Barbie again through the eyes of the artist most closely associated with Barbie and the hottest new talent in the game coming together on a track that will be contending for Song of the Summer, just as Barbie goes for the title at the box office. 

Let us know what your thoughts are on the video and if you loved it as much as we did!
