Ice Spice Supports David LaChapelle, Responds to ‘Y2K’ Cover Backlash

Ice Spice is playing her cards right and wants everyone to know it. This Thursday, the artist behind the hit “Deli” spoke up about the mixed reactions to her upcoming debut album, ‘Y2K’, set to release on July 26.

The cover photo, shot by David LaChapelle, features the album title on a trash can, sparking lively discussions among her followers. Ice Spice took to Twitter with a Polaroid snap of herself and the famous photographer, sharing a heartfelt note.

“David LaChapelle is the spirit of Y2K! So sweet and a true legend. He gave his services on the house because he vibes with the real me,” she tweeted. “Big thanks for all the stunning visuals over the years. This cover is super special to me and yes, we intentionally chose the trash can for ‘Y2K’.

Ice also dropped some exciting news on Wednesday: the launch of her first worldwide tour, the “Y2K! World Tour,” starting in Denmark on July 4. The tour promises an action-packed lineup of shows and festivals across Poland, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, and beyond, with the North American stretch kicking off on July 30 in Washington, D.C. New York’s own Cash Cobain will be joining her as the opening act.

The tour will hit cities like Boston, Detroit, Toronto, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, and Atlanta, finally closing in Miami Beach on August 31.

Concertgoers are in for a treat as they can expect performances of her tracks “Think U The S**t (Fart)” and “Gimmie A Light,” released in January and May, respectively.
