Ice Prince returns with new record, Feel Good features Phyno, Falz
The lyricist has been working on a strong return to the music scene in the past year. In 2018, he put out an extended play (EP), which he called C.O.LD, and later on in the year scored a mild hit with, Yawa featuring DMW’s Peruzzi.
The new record, which comes in the form of a swaggy tune, is produced by The Willis, same person behind Falz’s Talk.
Ice Prince rose to fame after releasing Oleku, one of Nigeria’s most remixed songs of all time. His achievements include the 2009 Hennessy Artistry Club Tour, one BET Award, one Ghana Music Award, three Headies Awards, two Nigeria Entertainment Awards and two Channel O Music Video Awards.
Currently signed to Chocolate City, his debut studio album, Everybody Loves Ice Prince, was released in 2011. The singles Oleku, Superstar, Juju and Magician supported it.
Prior to release of his second studio album, Fire of Zamani in 2013, the rapper had on January 25 that year released Aboki (Remix), which he described as the biggest African collision ever. The song features Sarkodie, Mercy Johnson, Wizkid, M.I and Khuli Chana.
He followed up with Gimme Dat and V.I.P simultaneously in April the same year. The former make the album’s final track-listing, while the latter didn’t. In 2015, Ice Prince began making available singles from his third studio album, Jos To The World, which was mix and master by US-based Universal Studio.
The eventual release of the album signified his first independent album outside Chocolate City record label. He however, was announced as the new Vice President of Chocolate City Music on July 1, 2015, a position he held till he left the label in 2016.
Prior to releasing ‘Jos To The World’, he dropped a controversial body of work, an extended play, which he titled Trash Can. The project received not-so-stellar reviews. Critics hold dear the opinion that the rapper hasn’t lived up to his lyrical potential, as he chooses to find sanctuary in pop sounds, than rap tracks.
According to them, Ice Prince has failed to wow after the Fire Of Zamani, with subsequent singles like Boss, Feelings, failing to impress, needless say making the radar. Chike, which was prepped as the saving grace in 2015 year, hit a brick wall.
