Rico Nasty Turns it Up: Sugar trap queen Rico Nasty plays the Observatory’s Constellation Room on Friday, with Omeretta the Great also on the bill. Rico recently released the “Turn it Up” single as her star continues to rise. This tour is sold out, as audiences around the country get hip to the Nasty vibe. Catch her while you can!

“Today, certified icon, Rico Nasty, released her first official single of the year, ‘Turn It Up,’ with production from frequent collaborators, 100 Gecs,” read an April press release. “The song is accompanied by a companion visual available for streaming now. Sonically, ‘Turn It Up’ is very Alt Rap but it’s the beautiful chaos and spitfire flow that fans love from Rico and proves why she is one of the most influential artists of her generation. The single comes on the heels of last month’s re-release of ‘‘Beat My Face.’ The song is now the official ad campaign sound for Urban Decay after previously only available to stream on Soundcloud.”

“Earlier this month, Rico kicked off her sold-out 2023 headlining tour, Monster Energy Outbreak Tour Presents: Rico Nasty in Toronto, ON. With opening support from Omeretta The Great, the dynamic duo has already done shows in Boston, Brooklyn, Philly, D.C., and Nashville with the tour wrapping in Cincinnati on May 27th. Last year, Rico Nastydelivered Las Ruinas, a 17-track project that she labeled a mixtape featuring singer/songwriter Bibi Bourelly (Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, Usher), Electronic producer and DJ Marshmello and more. She also joined Kehlani last September on the domestic leg of her Blue Water Road Trip tour. That same year, her hit track “Smack a Bitch,” produced by Kenny Beats, was RIAA-certified Platinum.
