Ice Spice has been trending thanks to her recent smash hit, “Boy’s a Liar Pt. 2” with PinkPantheress. In the song, the artists sing about a cheating boyfriend who keeps lying to his girlfriend.

The hit is a remix of “Boy’s a Liar” by PinkPatheress – released in 2022 under her debut album “Heaven Knows.”
How did this remix come to be? What made it such a success? Continue reading below to find out more about this successful project.
The DM That Started It
The pair linked up on TikTok and decided to do a remix of PinkPantheress's highly popular “Boy’s a Liar” song. To give the song (which was already viral on the platform) a refreshing new appeal, Ice Spice decided to add a rap verse.
Given the popular nature of the original song, the team behind PinkPantheress did not see any point in making a remix. However, the rising profile of the song made them see a lot of value in using a remix to connect with a wider audience. After much deliberation, they settled on Ice Spice as their artist of choice when it came to collaboration. Speaking to Variety, Jesse Gassongo-Alexander (co-manager of PinkPantheress) stated, “Pink sent her a DM and suggested doing the song.” He said that this was made easier because the “Munch” singer had just followed Pantheress on Instagram. In an NME interview, Pink mentioned, “I saw that [Ice Spice] followed me because I was on Instagram.” Spice sent her verse in three days later – and a new song was born!
The “Boy’s a Liar Pt. 2” remix went viral in no time — further emphasizing the high-ranking profile of Ice Spice in the world of music. Before the new project dropped, a video announcing its imminent release went viral on TikTok after being posted by a fan – who spotted the recording of the music video in New York.
Upon release, the song hit several milestones, including being the No. 1 trending music video on YouTube, landing at No. 1 on the Spotify UK Song Debuts, and reaching No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
