Rico Nasty announces new project ‘Las Ruinas’

Coming into 2022, it was hard to imagine Rico Nasty becoming more brash and edgy than she already was.

On prior mixtapes like 2018’s Nasty and 2019’s collaborative effort with Kenny Beats, Anger Management, Rico balanced her momentary, glossy bops with angsty, cutthroat bangers like “Big T*****s,” “Hatin,” “Rage” and “B*tch I’m Nasty.”

Her 2020 debut album Nightmare Vacation followed suit, as she mixed melodic with the maniacal — exemplifying her patented, self-described “sugar trap” sub-genre. Now, after abstaining from releasing a project for a year and a half, Nasty is back.

On Monday (June 20), Rico announced her upcoming album, Las Ruinas, slated for release on July 22. In the post, she described the project as her “most experimental and vulnerable body of work yet.”

While the track list for the project has not yet been publicized, the pre-save page for Las Ruinas on Apple Music reveals that it will have 16 songs, and its first three consist of her three recent promotional singles.

The album will likely consist of mostly electronic, rage-filled and punk-inspired themes and production, as her pre-released songs like “Vaderz” with Bktherula, “Intrusive” (the project’s intro) and, most recently, “Black Punk” have all shown.

The black-and-white cover art for Las Ruinas coincides mostly with the imagery associated with “Black Punk,” which is a pretty self-explanatory motive behind the project.

Ushering in her new era, Rico Nasty is ready to turn it up a notch and change gears, so buckle up for the ride.

Stay tuned into OGM for continued updates regarding ‘Las Ruinas!’
