Icy Ike returns with a new single titled “Naked,” produced by Chatz and Lil Rambo. Ike discusses his guilty pleasures, achievements he’s made, and the reasons why he “can’t stay anchored to nobody.” Naked is a straightforward song elevated by the deep drowning bass, distorted keys and hi-hats. Additionally, the vibe and flow throughout this track is unruffled as he makes his intentions clear from the start. As a friend with benefits joint marking at less than three minutes, Icy keeps his songs at short length to boost his catchy choruses and baritone vocals.

Likewise, the mood of the song is calm but it’s switch from verse to chorus is eccentrically playful. Icy Ike takes advantage of matching the bass when stating certain words to add emphasis. Although not fit for children, this track is fit for a good SoundCloud party playlist. Usually, his style is more aggressive and non-caring as he sets the record straight. In addition to this record, we hear a sly delivery paired with raw and catchy verses.
Artists similar to his sound are Tay-K, Lil Skies, and YBN Nahmir who also adopt familiar beat production and flows, coming from the SoundCloud wave of artists who gained notable numbers after releasing single after single. Gaining recognition from podcasts like No Jumper and holding it down for Spokane, Icy Ike is without a doubt an artist to keep an eye on considering his short career.
