Ice cream is a beloved dessert that many of us have fond memories of eating. So it’s no surprise that many songs feature it in their lyrics.
No matter if it’s an upbeat track or a soothing melody, there are tons of wonderful songs about ice cream out there. So let’s take a look at some of the best ones!
Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby
Vanilla Ice, real name Robert Matthew Van Winkle, is an American rapper and actor best known for his hit single “Ice Ice Baby.”

Later signing with SBK Records (EMI Group), Ice reformatted the album under the name To the Extreme which featured two of his most popular hits: “Ice Ice Baby” and a cover version of “Play That Funky Music.”
The song was an instant hit, skyrocketing to number one on Billboard Hot 100 for 16 weeks. Additionally, it enjoyed massive success in Australia, Belgium, the Netherlands, New Zealand and the Republic of Ireland.
Hip hop was revolutionized with this movement, taking it from underground underground clubs and into the mainstream market. Additionally, rap’s popularity skyrocketed during the 1990s due to its influence over popular culture.
