Doja Cat is one of music’s hottest stars right now. The Los Angeles native is known for making songs that span across the pop and hip-hop genres. They usually become hits on radio and trending songs on TikTok. Doja Cat, born Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, first went viral with her song “Moo.” It was later released on her debut album Amala. Many didn’t take her seriously at first. However, when the singer came back in 2019 with Hot Pink, which infused funk, pop, and hip-hop, everyone began talking. Hot Pink housed “Juicy,” “Like That,” and the viral “Say So.” “Say So” and “Juicy” would eventually get remixed with artists Nicki Minaj and Tyga, respectively, which added more flame to her fiery hits. Doja Cat would go on to drop her critically acclaimed third album Planet Her which earned her her first Grammy win for “Kiss Me More,” featuring SZA.

Doja Cat’s New Era

Doja Cat’s latest album, Scarlet, is proof that she does not care what anyone thinks. Prior to her officially announcing that she was coming out with a new project, on social media, she was trolling fans on what genre her new album would fit in. She went from ’90s German rave music, R&B, and rap before creating an album that reflected the latter. The album was a complete solo effort and had no features on the project. Scarlet has 15 tracks, with the lead single “Attention,” followed by “Paint The Town Red,” “Demons,” and “Balut.” “Paint The Town Red,” was the first hip-hop song this year to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart since August 2022. According to Billboard, the song ended the most extended gap between number ones for the genre since 2001.

Doja continuously drops hits and likely will do so for a long time to come.
