Ice Spice’s debut EP has received a second wind.
Six months after releasing Like…?, the Bronx rapper delivered the project’s deluxe version with five additional tracks: “Butterfly Ku,” “Deli,” “On the Radar,” “How High?” and the previously released “Princess Diana” remix featuring Nicki Minaj. The project, executive produced by Ice Spice and RiotUSA, was confirmed earlier this week on Instagram, where the artist also revealed its cover art.
Like…? (Deluxe) arrives as fans patiently await Ice Spice’s first studio album, which is in the works. You can stream the extended version below.
Ice Spice teased her debut full-length during her sit-down with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, where she also touched on her Taylor Swift collaboration, her upcoming tour with Doja Cat, and being mentored by Drake and Nicki.
“I feel like I am absorbing advice from her [Nicki] and learning from her and stuff,” the 23-year-old said. “And she’ll tell me, ‘Learn from my mistake, do this or don’t do that,’ or whatever. And I just really pay attention to what she’s saying. Because if there’s anyone I’m going to listen to it’s the queen.”
Ice Spice had similar comments about Drake, saying their relationship had a coach-trainee dynamic.
“[With Drake] We talk all the time and we’re always just laughing about some things that go on,” she explained. “And I’ll ask him, ‘What should I do with this? Or how’d you go about this? Or did you ever experience that?’ And he’ll…I’m not going to give real examples, but…he’ll tell me, ‘I did this and you should do that too, because you can.’ And I’ll be like, ‘You’re right. Period. I’m going to do that.’ It’s like coach vibes.”
