Ice Spice is about to break records with her latest collaboration. The renowned female rapper recently released “Karma”, a collaboration with Taylor Swift, and it earned her the biggest streaming debut for a female rapper in Spotify history.

The upbeat single has been gaining traction across the music industry since its release on Friday as a bonus track on Swift’s deluxe album, Midnights (The Til Dawn Edition). Within the first day of its debut, it had already accumulated over five million streams on the platform, setting the record for the most streamed female rap song on Spotify. The song is poised to continue that success, as its upbeat vibes and catchy lyrics make it stick in listeners’ minds.

Reactions to the single have been nothing less than awe-inspiring. Ice Spice has seen heavy praise from fans and fellow artists, with Nicki Minaj being one of her biggest celebrity champions.

As the months go by, the single is likely to keep growing in popularity, and already topping five million streams in the opening day was a strong indicator of this. It’s clear that Ice Spice is on a mission to cement her spot at the top of the rap game, and this collaboration with Taylor Swift is surely a place to start.
