The seven-time, RIAA certified platinum album featured the hit songs “Play That Funky Music” and “Ice Ice Baby,” reaching No. 4 and No. 1 on the Billboard charts, respectively. Vanilla Ice’s discography consists of a total of six studio albums, two compilations, one live album, one remix record and 13 singles. Other fan-favorites include “I Love You,” “Rollin in My 5.0” and “Cool as Ice (Everybody Get Loose),” featuring Naomi Campbell.
Vanilla Ice has had great success on the big screen as well, appearing in the credits of various movies and TV shows over the past three decades. His most recent venture, “The Vanilla Ice Project,” is his own TV show on the DIY network and recently won the Factual Award for Best Home TV Show.
