In video shared by the Recording Academy, the “Munch” rapper pulls up on Bey, Jay-Z and their daughter Blue Ivy as the trio walks through Crypto.com Arena. Queen Bey and Ice Spice happily embrace as the up-and-comer was also introduced to the Brooklyn rap icon and the couple’s eldest daughter.
Ice Spice nearly starts a conga line as more and more people appear to wait in the aisle’s wings, hoping to get a chance to meet the Carters.
Even though Ice went home empty-handed after being shut out in the four categories she was nominated in, Ice Spice couldn’t contain her excitement. She headed over to X shortly after the award show and revealed how inspired she’s feeling after finally meeting Beyoncé.
“Just met beyonce im never goin to fail,” she wrote while channeling Chance the Rapper’s lyrics about Kanye West on The Life of Pablo‘s “Ultralight Beam.”
Although it’s the first time they’ve met in person, they previously connected when Bey recruited Ice Spice to appear in her first-ever fashion campaign for Ivy Park last January.
“When I got the call I was in disbelief,” Ice Spice told People last year. “Beyoncé inspires me with her constant hard work and classy mannerisms. I love how she handles herself.”
The 24-year-old also recounted hearing from Bey during an Apple Music interview with Ebro Darden in 2023.
“She right through the proper channels and she did everything right,” Spice explained. “I really f–k with her. She’s so real, she’s such a boss … It’s an honor that Beyoncé picked me to be part of this campaign. I loved it that was fire.”
The Ice Spice momentum isn’t stopping in 2024 at the Grammy Awards, as she’s gearing up to star in a Super Bowl commercial for PepsiCo’s Starry next weekend, and has plans to unleash her anticipated debut album, Y2K, later this year.
