"Ice Princess" received positive reviews from critics. Pitchfork Media gave the song their "Best New Track" honor, with Jordan Sargent commenting that it displayed "Banks at her best: doing something unexpected simply because she can." While Brennan Carley of Spin described the song as having the potential to "be the single that finally breaks the Harlem MC on the radio, and it's about time." Kate Beaudoin from Mic commented on the song, praising Banks' flow, "It's a captivating video and an even better song. Her flow is unbelievable: 'You broke honey, and they call me Banks cause I can loan money / Colder than December, my diamonds on Anna Wintour / So that's fly ice in my life / I don't see no limits so I strive and I shine twice,' Banks raps. Anyone who can fit Anna Wintour into a rhyme about winter automatically gets points."
