Ushering in a new era of Rico, with the aim “to bring out another side of you and almost feel like you’re being taken over by Magic”, her new mixtape ‘Rx’ is due later this summer, and Rico told us earlier this year that her forthcoming music is “a bunch of different moods - happy pills, if you will”.
“I just think it’s like, this is probably the only artist you could put on and you’re gonna have fun. I guarantee it or your money back,” she said. “If you get the stick up out your ass and stop worrying about why I don’t sound like anyone else, you gonna have some fun bro, I promise. That’s what it really is, breaking it down. Like, ‘Bitch, you’re gonna have fun OK. We’re here to kick ass, we’re here to rage, we’re here to boss up!’ The music I make is for the people who tend to get shit on for being different in whatever way. They feel a little powerless, and that’s probably why they fuck with me because I wanna give them power just as much as I give myself power and make myself feel confident.”
