Ice Spice has recruited Rema for her newest single “Pretty Girl,” released on Friday (Oct. 13).

This marks the first time the Bronx-bred rapper, who’s Nigerian by way of her father, and the Nigerian Afro-rave singer have collaborated on a song. But the two are no strangers to collaboration. Ice’s four Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hits are with other artists: “Karma” with Taylor Swift (peaked at No. 2), “Boy’s a liar, Pt. 2” with PinkPantheress (No. 3), “Princess Diana” with Nicki Minaj (No. 4) and “Barbie World” with Minaj and Aqua (No. 7). Meanwhile, Rema’s “Calm Down” remix with Selena Gomez reached No. 3 on the Hot 100 and topped Billboard‘s U.S. Afrobeats Songs, Adult Pop Airplay, Pop Airplay, Rhythmic Airplay and World Digital Song Sales charts. “Calm Down” won the best Afrobeats award at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards last month.

“Pretty Girl” arrives the day before Ice’s Saturday Night Live debut on the 49th season premiere, which will be hosted by Pete Davidson. It’s the first episode since the live sketch comedy show shut down in May due to the recently resolved writers’ strike. Earlier this week, she won the best breakthrough hip-hop artist award at the 2023 BET Hip-Hop Awards.

Next month, Ice will open on select dates for Doja Cat‘s Scarlet Tour. Rema was recently announced as the co-headliner alongside Kendrick Lamar for the second night of the Hey Neighbour Festival in Pretoria, South Africa. The festival will take place Dec. 8-10.
