It’s not yet known whether ‘Rx’ will be a full album, EP or mixtape. One fan asked in the comments “is it an album?” to which artist Karli Fetz  – who was tagged in Kelly’s post – responded with the eyes emoji.

Further details are yet to be revealed.

In a four-star review of ‘Nightmare Vacation’, NME said: “The frenetic Maryland artist will not be restrained by any boundaries – genre, social or otherwise – as this thrilling, wildly charged, star-stuffed debut proves.”


Back in March, Rico Nasty shared the music video for ‘Pussy Poppin’, the latest single from her debut album. The single followed on from ‘Own It’, ‘Don’t Like Me’, ‘OHFR?’ and ‘STFU’, which were released between last August and December.
