The product description outlines the plot:
“Rico Nasty is deep in space recording her latest album. Unfortunately, an accidental cannabis nap sends her spaceship, CAM, crashing onto Earth!
“Waking up at a soulless android facility, she’ll have to survive on noodles while searching for her missing ship — but at least she has the help of her new, dope girlfriends, Taco Bella & Trap Levigne. Together, they’ll battle countless androids while trying to find CAM and finish her new album.”
‘Nightmare Vacay’ can be pre-ordered here with expected shipping in January 2021. Rico’s debut album ‘Nightmare Vacation’ was released on 4th December on Atlantic Records and her own Sugar Trap label. Listen to it here.
