Ice Spice has Taylor Swift’s back!

In a viral video shared on X (formerly Twitter), the rapper, 24, could be seen clapping back at the audience during her set at the Rolling Loud Europe Festival in Austria on Sunday, July 7.

At one point during her performance, the crowd began booing and making thumbs-down gestures when the speakers started to play “Karma,” a song she collaborated on with Swift, 34. Ice handled the moment like a pro and simply responded by blowing kisses to the crowd.

Swift released the Midnights track remix for “Karma” last year and raved about how easy it was working with Ice.

“Collaborating with Ice Spice on ‘Karma’ was one of the most natural things,” she said about the song upon its release in a Spotify audio clip in May 2023.

“She reached out through her team, just kind of saying, ‘Hey, Ice has been a big fan of Taylor’s since she was a little kid, would love to collaborate if that was ever something that came about,’ ” she added.

The duo also surprised fans by performing “Karma” in May 2023 at the New Jersey stop of Swift’s record-breaking Eras Tour.

Swift and Ice have been close since their collaboration. The “Boy’s a Liar Pt. 2” singer told Billboard in March that Swift had given her some helpful advice and become someone she can lean on in the industry.

“When I was in the studio with Taylor, like, I’ll never forget that. She told me, ‘No matter what, just keep making music and everything’s going to be fine,’ ” Ice said at the time.
