Brace yourself for a singular spectacle as these adept rap artists trade lyrical punches, weaving through landscapes on motorbikes and traversing a gigantic dollhouse. Submerge yourself in an eye-popping music video where various hues of pink breathe new life into the idea of being “pink-pilled.” Ice Spice, notable for her fiery red hair, dons a bright pink wig, contributing an extra dash of panache to the extravaganza.
Their composition, a contemporary take on Aqua’s enduring classic “Barbie Girl,” is a tribute to the cherished Mattel figurine. Nicki and Ice Spice imbue their verses with an unstoppable self-assurance, rendering lines such as “And I’m wicked like the Barbie/I’m a figurine but I still love a good party” and “Pink Corvette signals I’m game/I’m a perfect score, so I roll in with a Ken/Jazzie, Stacie, Nicki/Every Barbie is stunning/Every Barbie is fierce, the trendsetters, and we’re not playing tag.”
Under the expert direction of the accomplished Greta Gerwig, Barbie flaunts a cast full of stars including Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, Simu Liu, Michael Cera, among others. The film’s official soundtrack is slated to hit the music scene on July 21, synchronizing with Barbie’s premier theatrical unveiling in the United States.
