Ice Spice continues her ascension as one of Hip-Hop’s hottest newcomers, recording the biggest streaming day of her career, an accolade that saw her break a record set by a rap icon.
The Bronx rising star rapper stormed her way into the history books with her appearance on the new “Karma (Remix)” alongside Taylor Swift. The song was released last Friday (May 26) as a bonus track on the singer’s album Midnights (The Til Dawn Edition.)
According to Chart Data, Ice Spice earned the biggest streaming debut for a female rapper in global Spotify history thanks to the Taylor Swift assist, racking up 5.036 million streams on its first day. Karma also scored Ice Spice the biggest streaming day of her career on Spotify.
Ice Spice surpassed her “Princess Diana” collaborator Nicki Minaj who previously held the record with her No. 1 hit song “Super Freaky Girl.” The single opened with a reported 3.021 million streams following its release in August 2022.
“swifties x munchkins = ♥️,” Ice Spice wrote while sharing Chart Data’s tweet.
