YORK, May 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Here to
confirm no one does a remix better, last week, Smirnoff ICE kicked
off its highly anticipated Relaunch Tour with host Nicky Hilton and star studded performances
from music's most celebrated OGs – Shaggy and T-Pain
– and the hottest innovators – DaniLeigh and DJ
Moma. After recently debuting a drippy new look and
national TV spots jam packed with ADV-ICE and star-studded talent,

some of the hottest artists in the scene today, DaniLeigh and DJ
Moma, proved the best parties are when everyone comes together to
celebrate. And, it's only the beginning as Smirnoff ICE continues
to partner with some of the hottest artists all summer long.
"What can I say, flavor knows flavor," said award-winning
artist T-Pain, who recently released his acclaimed covers
album, On Top of The Covers, and will be hitting the road this
summer beginning with his own Wiscansin Fest on June 10. "Smirnoff ICE and I have that in common
and that's what this Relaunch Tour is serving all summer long."
"I'm all about the classics," said Shaggy. "And when it
comes to kicking off the first stop of the Smirnoff ICE Relaunch
Tour, I can most certainly say, it WAS me!"
