Ice Spice’s Debut Album Featuring ‘New Classics’ Coming In 2024, Producer Riotusa Reveals

Ice Spice‘s debut album promises to offer what producer RIOTUSA is already designating as “new classics” when it arrives some time next year.

The producer behind the boards on Spice’s breakthrough track “Munch,” held a live Q&A on Wednesday (December 13), which was captured by Billboard. RIOTUSA, who met Ice Spice when they were college students at SUNY — Purchase, teased that the pair were in the process of cooking up some new heat in the studio.

“Fans should know I produce and record too, so look out for my music,” he said. “Also look out for new classics with Ice in 2024. We’re working on her debut album as we speak.”

RIOTUSA also spoke extensively about working with Nicki Minaj, who collaborated with Ice Spice on “Princess Diana” and “Barbie World.”

“Nicki is a legend, icon. She was so cool in person and welcomed me into her creative space,” RIOT recounted. “When I found out she was getting on ‘Princess Diana,’ I knew it was lit. But then finding out about ‘Barbie World’ with Ice too? I was like nah, this is New York City.”

While she has yet to deliver a full album, Ice Spice kicked off 2023 with her first EP, Like..?, which contained the hit singles responsible for her meteoric rise to stardom. Between the music and her looks, she’s managed to capture the attention of fans and detractors alike.

On December 11, Google revealed the most-searched artists for 2023, and the Bronx-born rapper came in at No. 2 just behind country singer Jason Aldean.

Sexyy Red was the only other rapper in the top 10, coming in at the last spot.

Taking to Twitter to react to the news on Wednesday (December 13), Ice simply wrote, “nosey much ?”

It’s been a huge year for Ice Spice, so much so that the “Munch” rapper recently had to respond to claims that she is an “industry plant” because of her fast ascent.

“A lot of people have thrown that in my face — like ‘Oh, I’ve never seen anything happen so quickly. She needs to be studied,’ or ‘She’s a plant,’” she said in an interview with Variety.

She added: “I just let people believe whatever they want to believe, to be honest. I don’t really mind all the rumors. At first, I did, but now I’m at a point where I understand that just comes with this lifestyle.”

Earlier this month, the hitmaker signed with major talent agency WME, leaving her current representatives CAA.

According to Variety, the move will see WME (William Morris Endeavor) look after the rising Bronx rapper in all areas including music and touring.

She joins an impressive music roster which already boasts Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Pharrell, Future and Travis Scott, among a number of other A-listers.
