Rico Nasty releases her latest single "Black Punk" available now. The fun yet posh single sees Rico carving out a new niche with "rich rhymes" over a heavy rock beat. The accompanying visual is available for streaming via YouTube. The track is a follow up to the vulnerable "Intrusive" single released last month.
"Black Punk" is a masterclass in confidence and how to perfectly marry two opposing music genres while including a catchy hook that fans are sure to mosh to. The track, was also produced by "Intrusive" and "Vaderz" frequent collaborator Ben10k along with Danes Blood and Amon. All three singles will be featured on her very personal upcoming project, Las Ruinas, available for pre-order. On this body of work, we'll see Rico taking full creative control creating a work of art that reflects her vulnerability and authenticity.
"Intrusive" is an interesting take on and response to how life, social media, people's opinions, or even your own thoughts can be a lot sometimes – very intrusive even. "Vaderz (Feat. Bktherula)" marked Rico's first new song of 2022 and follows last year's "Money (Feat. Flo Milli)", available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Produced by legendary German electronic dance music DJ/producer Boys Noize (Frank Ocean, Skrillex, Snoop Dogg), the track is joined by an official music video. "Money" – which sees Rico teaming with feisty Mobile, AL rapper Flo Milli – was met by ecstatic critical applause, with VIBE declaring, "Both ladies bring their bold attitudes to their verses declaring their desire for cash on their own terms." "It's got a big, bouncy beat with Miami bass 808s and chopped-up guitar riffs," raved Stereogum. "On the hook, Rico adapts 2 Live Crew's self-explanatory 1986 chant 'We Want Some Pussy.' On the verses, Rico and Flo Milli snarl hard and demand whatever's in your pockets."
Rico – who recently appeared alongside Avril Lavigne on the cover of Alternative Press' "Modern Icons" issue – joined forces with Doja Cat at last month's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival for an instantly iconic live performance of their classic 2019 collaboration, "Tia Tamera".
