Rapper Doja Cat Reveals More About Upcoming Album

Doja Cat has revealed that each song on her new album will have its own "personality".

The 'Say So' hitmaker says that her LP will be due out soon, and has opened up about the genres it will cover.

The music star said: "I'm always kind of winging it. I have my album coming - can't say when. I really want to make it a surprise. I don't want to say too much. Each song has its own personality.

"It's not gonna be perfectly consistent - I've never been, anyway. But we have some dancehall stuff on there, some Afrobeat stuff, some funk, house. I'm trying to cover all bases."

Doja won PUSH Best New Artist at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this week and she admits she thought it was a "prank" when she found out.

She told MTV News: "I thought it was a sick prank! No, I was really, really excited to find that out and I didn't know how to try to hold myself back from tears.

"I usually say that I don't care about this kind of thing, but I actually do.

"I now know that I do care about getting this award, a lot. It means that there are people out there who enjoy my music and they care about me, like they care about the craft. They care about what I'm doing. That's amazing for me because I just enjoy doing it, period. If people didn't like it, I'd probably still be doing it, but it's really cool that people support it."

During the MTV VMAs 2020, Doja Cat also made her debut on stage at the award show, singing a mash up of her hits 'Like That' and 'Say So' (Watch below). The latter topped the Billboard 100, following the release of a remix featuring Nicki Minaj, and has so far spent 34 weeks on the chart.

Doja Cat released her debut studio album, Amala, in 2018, followed by a deluxe repackage in 2019, which included the singles 'Tia Tamera' and 'Juicy'. Her second studio album, Hot Pink, was released the same year, and reached the top 10 of the Billboard 200.
