If there's one person we are obsessed with right now, it's Ice Spice. The American rapper is everywhere, with her latest single in collaboration with PinkPantheress 'Boy's a Liar pt2' dropping last week.

You're probably already familiar with Ice Spice without even realising it. Her single 'Bikini Bottom' went big on TikTok last year thanks to the lyric 'How can I lose if I'm already chose' or maybe you know her from the first time she went viral in 2021 doing the Erica Banks 'Buss It' challenge.

Ice Spice has been in the music industry since 2021, Lil Nas X dressed up as her for Halloween and she's starred in a Ivy Park x Adidas campaign. We knew we liked her straight away when she described herself as "gorgeous, confident and witty" in an interview with Elle.

At the start of the year she released her EP Like..? which featured six songs and most recently she collaborated with PinkPantheress on 'Boy's a Liar pt2'.

Where does the name Ice Spice come from?

During an interview with Elle Ice Spice revealed her rapper name comes from when she 14 years old and was playing around with name ideas on her finsta.

She said: "I chose Ice Spice because it literally rhymes. I was 14 coming up with like a finsta name and I was like 'what rhymes with ice? Spice.' Plus I love spicy food too. I put hot sauce on everything." Obsessed.

You can indeed. Ice Spice currently has over 3 million followers on Instagram and her handle is @icespice.

She's also on TikTok, under the username @icespicee.

What does Ice Spice do when they're not working?

Ok, so it seems like Ice Spice is always busy but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop.

Growing up she was really into playing volleyball, and last year tweeted about her love for the sport, saying: "aww I miss playing volleyball".

But to unwind now, Ice Spice told NME she is really into pole dancing and has her own pole at home that she practices on for hours.

What's Ice Spice's relationship status?

Right now it's currently unclear if Ice Spice is in relationship but we do know what her ideal date would be.

In a conversation with Interview magazine between Ice, Erykah Badu and her daughter Puma Curry, she revealed she is all about a low key date.

She said: "I’m a homebody. I don’t really like to be out in public doing things like that, especially now. My dream date is chilling at home by ourselves. We’re just smoking, eating, and watching movies. You get to know somebody better that way.”

We couldn't agree more.
