Ice Spice has revealed the advice Taylor Swift gave her.

The 24-year-old rapper - whose real name is Isis Naija Gaston - previously refused to spill on the exact advice she received from the 34-year-old pop superstar, however, she has now revealed that the 'Anti-Hero' hitmaker told her to just "keep making music and everything will be fine."

Speaking to Billboard, she said: "When I was in the studio with Taylor, like, I’ll never forget.

"She told me, 'No matter what, just keep making music and everything’s going to be fine.'"

She previously told The Guardian newspaper: “I was like: ‘You [mess] with my project?' Like, what? She’s so sweet – I was so obsessed with how humble she was and willing to work. She gives me so much advice – we talk all the time and she’s so funny… But I can’t say what she be telling me."

The pair teamed up on the remix of Taylor's hit 'Karma' last May.

Ice Spice also revealed that her debut album, 'Y2K', is nearing completion.

She said: "Yes, there is going to be an album this year.

"This year, I'm so excited. It's called Y2K. It's almost finished. So, I'm really excited."

The 'Barbie World' hitmaker - who performed with Taylor during the New Jersey dates of her 'Eras' tour - has also become close friends with fellow rap star Nicki Minaj and "loves" to be able to talk to the 'Super Bass' singer about things she cannot talk about when the cameras are on.

She said: "She be telling me to learn from her mistakes – just watching her in general, if you pay close enough attention, you gonna see what you should do. I love to talk to her about things that I can’t talk about publicly – it just means so much to be able to have somebody like her.

"I'm just happy to be a part of such a big movement and to be able to contribute to the culture. I’m willing to try whatever, you know what I’m saying? I’m young – I’m gonna try everything."
