The original track, which PinkPantheress co-produced with Mura Masa, arrived last year before showing up on her Take Me Home EP, and now it’s getting an extra boost courtesy of the “Munch” rapper. While most rappers might struggle to rap over the type of production PinkPantheress works with, Ice Spice effortlessly blends into the track on the remix, which is titled “Boy’s a Liar Pt. 2.”
In an interview with NME on Friday, PinkPantheress opened up about her decision to work with Ice Spice on the remix. “I saw that [Ice Spice] followed me because I was on Instagram, and I never go on Instagram,” she said. “I thought it was cool because I didn’t think she even knew who I was. I popped in [the DMs] and said, ‘Whenever you’re in the UK, I’d love to meet’. I think she’s really cool, above the music and everything. She said she was a fan [of mine], and I was like, ‘OK, amazing.’”
Initially, she was hesitant to remix the track after it became one of her biggest to date. “When it comes to collaborations, I’m quite picky: I always want someone who can match me well on a track," she added. "Even though Ice Spice does drill, her flows are super unique and the beats she chooses are different. A lot of people would struggle with the beats I choose, but I knew she’d be good for it.”
