Ice Cream Girl

Songfacts®:

  • Kingston described this to Blues and Soul magazine as "just a fun song that uses the New Edition 'Candy Girl' sample."
  • Wyclef Jean produced and features on this track. Kingston told Blues and Soul magazine about his collaboration with the ex Fugee artist: "Working with him was AMAZING! Because we're both from the West Indies, and he's like this reggae/ cultural typea guy who's also really big on melodies. Which is dope, because a great song without a great melody is not gonna go ANYWHERE! You know, a lotta people sometimes don't even LISTEN to the words! They just wanna chill out, hum and sing along! And Wyclef is really good at just making great, sing-along music that people can have fun with."
