A playful and infectious pop collaboration that celebrates the imaginative world of Barbie while honoring the original song by Aqua.

The song “Barbie World” by Nicki Minaj & Ice Spice (with Aqua) is a modern take on the classic Aqua song “Barbie Girl“. The song features the two rappers trading bars over a sample of the Aqua song, and it celebrates the power and beauty of women.

The song’s lyrics are about being confident and owning your own beauty. They also reference the Barbie doll, which is often seen as a symbol of beauty and perfection. However, the song flips the script on this idea, and it celebrates the diversity of women’s bodies and looks.

The song’s melody is catchy and upbeat, and it’s sure to get stuck in your head. The production is also top-notch, and it creates a sense of energy and excitement.

“Barbie World” was released in June 2023, and it quickly became a hit. The song has been praised for its empowering message and its catchy melody. It has also been credited with helping to bring the Barbie doll back into the cultural zeitgeist.

Margot was quoted, “I was like, ‘Greta, how are we going to incorporate this song?
