Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice are Barbie girls in a Barbie World.

From the beginning of her decades-long career, Nicki has branded herself as a Barbie, and she has been able to uniquely weave that into her multiple rap personas in a compelling way, so it's only right that she would be on the upcoming Barbie movie soundtrack. It makes perfect sense to us because even her fanbase, the almighty Barbz, draws inspiration from the famous doll character's name.

In a short Instagram clip, the matriarch of the Barbz posted a clip with the brand-new banger, "Barbie World," serving as the ultimate background jam. Can we get a "yasss" from the congregation, please? It didn't stop there; fans also noticed that Ice Spice was featured in the song! "Barbie World" will be part of the epic soundtrack for the upcoming Barbie movie. We can't wait to groove along to Nicki's fierce beats while watching our favorite doll come to life, but back to the issue at hand.

What has Nicki Minaj said about her new record label?

On her "Queen Radio" show, Nicki shared the name of her label and said:

“Heavy On It is the label, and I’m proud to announce my partnership with the one and only Ice Spice,” she stated. This came shortly before their number-one hit “Princess Diana” remix.

It looks like although the "Munch" singer isn't signed to Nicki, she does have an ongoing joint venture with the rap icon. We are wholeheartedly here for all of this New York Magic. Fans can't wait to hear more from Nicki and Ice Spice.
