Saweetie has a song sampling Aqua‘s 1997 track “Barbie Girl,” a snippet of which surfaced on December 3.

On the track, the rapper gives fans yet another reminder that she is indeed an “icy girl.”

“I’m a icy girl, in a icy world/Let you taste it, congratulations,” Saweetie sings to the melody of the original song. “You can buy me hair and fly me anywhere/Make you chase it, that’s my reputation.” 

The snippet has made its way around the internet, getting mixed reviews from fans. “I literally just told my coworker that if someone touched ‘Barbie Girl’ I’d be done… Saweetie… please sit down somewhere cause this ain’t it,” wrote one of many who disliked the audio.

Among the positive reviews was a tweet that read, “It’s a bop, don’t know wtf y’all be talking about.”

A number of fans suggested that Nicki Minaj feature on the track.
