Princess Nokia returns with awesome new song & video, “Sugar Honey Iced Tea”

Princess Nokia

Princess Nokia really started to (deservedly) take off after releasing the 2017 deluxe edition of her 2016 EP/mixtape 1992, and then she took a sonic detour with 2018’s “emo” mixtape A Girl Cried Red, but now she’s back with her first new single in over a year, and it sounds like she’s entirely back on track. “Sugar Honey Iced Tea (S.H.I.T.)” is a return to the incisive raps of 1992, but it’s also a massive leap forward from that album. It’s one of Nokia’s most immediately satisfying songs yet, and it doesn’t really sound like anything else she’s done. The horn-fueled song sounds upbeat and fun on the surface, but Nokia tackles some serious issues in the lyrics, including racism, sexism, domestic abuse, guns, and more. (She references the throwing soup at the racist subway rider incident.) Check it out, along with its equally awesome, beauty pageant-themed video (directed by Emma Westenberg and featuring a Maliibu Miitch cameo), below.
