America’s Sweetheart, Ice Spice, has joined forces with the queen herself Nicki Minaj for a remix of her song “Princess Diana.” The original version of the song is featured on Spices’ EP Like..? which was released earlier this year. The EP came with massive critical acclaim, and placed Spice in the spotlight to become a viral sensation.
The remix now includes a new verse from Minaj, where she showcases her impeccable rap skills with iconic lines such as “I be eatin’ my spinach/ They tried to clone my image/ They burned they London Bridges/ None of them bitches British.”
The remix also led to Ice Spice earning her first #1 on the US iTunes chart.
Spice also released a music video for the remix, which of course features herself and Minaj front and center, decked out in pink. The video has a Bratz-doll vibe, (and even features dolls of the rappers themselves). It also serves as a perfect combination of Minaj’s Barbie and Spice’s kawaii aesthetics, and is extremely eye-catching.
Minaj and Ice Spice have been publicly friend-crushing over one another for a while now, with Minaj commenting “Gag. The People’s PRINCESS. Catch it!!!” on Spices’ Dazed Magazine cover. Spice charmingly responded to Minaj’s praise with “ya heard da QUEEN.”

But if you thought that was the only Ice Spice/Nicki Minaj news for the week, you’d be wrong! The “Princess Diana” remix dropped nearly simultaneously with Minaj’s announcement of her brand new record label, Heavy On It, under which she also signed Ice Spice to a partnership! We hope this means that this dynamic duo will team up again in the future. They truly are the most legendary princess and queen pairing we’ve seen since Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews in The Princess Diaries.
