Brussels-based rapper ICO, renowned for his unique style and ability to surprise listeners, has recently revealed his latest project titled “MIA”. This mini-album, arriving just two weeks after the release of his successful single “5h23”, is a compilation of seven tracks showcasing ICO’s boundless versatility and creativity.
In “MIA”, ICO continues to push the boundaries of rap by incorporating a myriad of innovative sound effects into his vocals. This approach allows him to play with words in a novel way, creating a captivating and unpredictable listening experience. The project spans several musical styles, from hyperpop to heavy-bass bangers, and includes melancholic rap pieces where ICO exhibits his signature egotrip.
This feat is even more remarkable as the artist also pays homage to his peers and influences in the industry, with references to names like Guy2Bezbar, Gazo, and Central Cee. These nods show ICO’s recognition of the environment he operates in, while highlighting his desire to remain connected and relevant in the ever-evolving musical landscape.
The music video for “TCHIGILILI”, a track from “MIA”, continues ICO’s artistic boldness. The visual complements the musical experience with its creativity and ability to visually captivate the audience, making “MIA” a comprehensive and immersive project.
With “MIA”, ICO once again affirms his status as a trailblazing artist in the Francophone rap world, delivering a rich, diverse, and boldly creative project.
