Twitter has done it again! Fans quickly uncovered Bronx native Ice Spice’s high school yearbook photo from her senior year, which went viral.
Ice Spice is trending on social media again after the photo was posted due to her uncanny resemblance to actress Lauren London when she was younger. Both women have deep dimples, long dark hair and beautiful smiles in their photos. As a result, many have labeled two women as “twins” or say they have a “strong resemblance.”
The photo would make anyone double-take since Ice Spice has elevated into her new look. The image featured her government name Isis Gaston below it, and although she’s not rocking her curly orange ‘fro, you can tell it’s a younger Ice Spice with dark black blown-out hair.
The photo has over 12 million views and has garnered over 200,000 likes, The Shade Room reports.
This moment isn’t the first (or last) of Ice Spice being the topic of conversation. When she emerged as one of the most prominent new artists in hip-hop for her single “Munch (Feelin’ U),” fans were quickly invested in her sound and looks.
According to HypeBae, before “Munch” hit the radio, she had previous tracks she called “serious flops,” which she blamed on her desire to fit in with trending looks and sounds.
“Once I brought it back to the real me and my roots, and I put my Jordans back on, and I just wore my natural hair, and I was just really being authentic to myself, that’s when my views started going up again,” she told HypeBae. “I was like, ‘Let me just be me.’”
Getting back to her roots certainly worked in her favor because since the release of her debut EP, “Like..?,” she’s had successful momentum. Her new track “Gangsta Boo” featuring Lil Tjay is her first to debut at No. 37 in the U.S. on the Billboard 200 chart and put her at No. 82 on the Hot 100 chart.
