Ice Spice has been dubbed as “rap’s new princess” without having a single studio album under her belt, but that’s about to change. The Grammy-nominated rapper teased the release of her debut album Y2K and revealed it would hit the shelves later this year.

Ice Spice dropped some hints about her upcoming LP in a recent interview with The Today Show and said it will be released sometime this year. She explained that she opted for the title Y2K as a reference to her birthday, January 1, 2000. This announcement comes shortly after she dropped her first single of 2024, “Think U the S–t (Fart)”.

Ice Spice also said her debut studio album is “almost finished”, and added it will feature “a crazy collaboration that just got locked in, like two days ago.” She declined to reveal who’s she referring to, but the list of her previous collaborators includes Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj, setting high expectations for her next A-list collab.

Ice Spice will be in the running for four awards at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, including best new artist, best pop duo/group performance for “Karma” with Taylor Swift, and best rap song and best song written for visual media for “Barbie World” with Nicki Minaj and Aqua.
