Two rookie of the year candidates shine in “Pretty Girl.”

Nigeria, stand the hell up! Not only are people starting to put respect on our form of Jolloff, but up-and-coming artists like Rema and Ice Spice (B*tch, Ice Spice told us she was Nigerian a few months back) are turning into megastars. Today, the two Nigerians decided to link up for a new single called “Pretty Girl.” 

Who would’ve thought Ice Spice (A rapper) and Rema (An Afropop artist) would combine to make a bubbly pop record? Well, that’s what “Pretty Girl” is. In the track, Ice, who has confirmed that she is in a relationship now, uses this shy girl rap style to talk about being smitten with love. As for Rema, he hooks us up with a chorus that has a basic melody and high school-level romantic lyrics. Everything is topped with this low-quality pop/Afropop beat. Can you tell by how I’m talking about this song that I hate it?

Give “Pretty Girl” a shot below.
