All right stop! Collaborate and listen
Ice is back with my brand new invention

With an opening line like that, it's no wonder how Vanilla Ice's iconic hit "Ice Ice Baby" became the number 1 song in America in 1990. The song became the first ever rap song to reach the top of the US Billboard Singles Chart, and hit topped the charts in 6 different countries.

The song was initally intended to be released as a "B-side" to Vanilla Ice's cover of "Play that Funky Music". However, the song was not initially successful and DJ's began to play "Ice Ice Baby" instead. "Ice Ice Baby" samples the bass line from Queen and David Bowie's single "Under Pressure".
