Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice recently released their new collaboration, “Barbie World,” a single from the Mark Ronson-produced Barbie soundtrack.
The song arrived with a music video directed by Hannah Lux Davis. The pink visual shows the rappers and their doll likenesses hanging out in their own Barbie Dreamhouse.
Initial reports seemed to indicate the “Barbie World” track, which features a sample of AQUA‘s “Barbie Girl,” would not appear in the Greta Gerwig-helmed film. AQUA’s “Barbie Girl,” was released 25 years ago.
While announcing the song on June 10, Minaj tweeted, “It’s Barbie, b-h, if you still in doubt.”
In a recent episode of her “Queen Radio Amp” show, Minaj revealed why she decided to accept Ice Spice’s invitation and join her on “Barbie World.”
“This is the first time that someone had put this sample in a way that didn’t make me uncomfortable or gimmicky,” she said. “I figured out that it needed to be a beat that would still give Barbie & Nicki.”
The Barbie soundtrack, produced by Mark Ronson, marks the reunion of Minaj, Ice Spice and RiotUSA. It is due out on July 21st.
