N.A.S.A. and Lizzo Team Up For Modern Revamp of ‘Iko Iko’
The new track — just called "Iko" — takes full advantage of the Minneapolis rapper's skills
N.A.S.A. have just teamed up with Minneapolis rapper — and recent Sleater-Kinney tourmate — Lizzo for a banging new one called “Iko,” which, as the name suggests, samples and screws the 1964 original “Iko Iko” on its chorus. More than anything else, it’s abundantly thrilling to see the 27-year-old MC finally getting her due, as her brightly shining, boisterous personality makes the new song’s verses soar. N.A.S.A.’s slick production teems with the sort of verve much modern pop is missing. Get to know both Lizzo and N.A.S.A. here.
