Ice Spice’s “Bikini Bottom” is our rap song of the week

Rap Song of the Week breaks down all the hip-hop tracks you need to hear every Friday. Check out the full playlist here. This week, Ice Spice follows up their viral hit “Munch (Feelin U)” with “Bikini Bottom.”

This summer, Bronx rapper Ice Spice shook up the New York exercise (and TikTok) with his viral hit, “Munch (Feelin U),” a playful track with the insanely catchy hook, “You Thought I Felt You ?/ That N***aa munch On the surface, she seemed to be rapping about using a guy for sex, but “munch” eventually became a catch-all term for someone who’s nerdy or a loser .

Unsurprisingly, Drake (who would probably admit he’s a snacker) co-signed Ice Spice, as did Cardi B. After that, the 22-year-old rapper showed she could hold on to the band’s cut of B- Lovee, another escape from the Bronx. Once.” Now, Ice Spice has released “Bikini Bottom,” another fun track showing she hasn’t been weighed down by expectations.

Of course named after Spongebob’s house, it features a minimalist, flamenco-focused beat allowing Ice Spice’s personality to shine through. Once again, she glides to the beat with a nimble touch and demonstrates a knack for lines that will resonate with fans.

Ahead of the release of “Bikini Bottom,” Ice Spice tested the waters by teasing the hook on TikTok: “How can I lose if I’m already cast? / Like / If she feels hot then I freeze this female dog / And I get a tight female dog every time I post / Damn.

We’ll have to see if ‘Bikini Bottom’ proves Ice Spice is tough, but either way, can we get an official Cardi B remix of ‘Munch’ instead of the ‘just for fun’ music video she has? posted earlier this month?
