About a month and a half after the release of her previous single “Time Flies,” Rico Nasty is back with another new track, “Fashion Week.” A surprise standalone release, the debut of the Jetson-produced “Fashion Week” coincides with the arrival of New York Fashion Week, which runs from September 4 to September 11; the song itself gives listeners a brief rundown of some of Rico Nasty’s favorite designers. Notably, “Fashion Week” is the second Rico Nasty single to hit streaming services and similar outlets since the 22-year-old superstar-in-the-making delivered her critically-acclaimed, Kenny Beats-helmed Anger Management project in April.
“First we made ‘Cold, Cheat Code’ and ‘Hatin’ then we were like ‘Stop, where are we going with this? What’s the concept?’” Rico Nasty explained to Fizzy Mag earlier this year, detailing the studio sessions and creative processes that birthed her Anger Management collaboration with Kenny Beats. “Then we made ‘Big Titties,’ the ‘[Nasty World] Skit,’ then ‘Relative.’ And then we stopped again and we’re like ‘What’s the name?’ so we called in the management and put on ‘Mood.’ And then we did ‘Sell Out.’ Every day we came back to the studio and were like ‘This is the song we made before’ and worked on it more. And another thing is that the songs took a long while to make. ‘Cheat Code’ and ‘Cold’ were both 6-hour sessions for one song because we made the beats from scratch. We did everything from scratch, all the samples, all that cool stuff.”
