Doja Cat Doubles Down On Ditching Pop For “Rap, Soul And R&B”

Doja Cat continues to stand firm in her declaration of a new era. The Grammy Award-winning musician has teased that her next album will not be as commercial as previous releases in recent social media posts. Ready to create on her own terms, the 2023 BMI Pop Awards Songwriter Of The Year promises a new sound.

“I have thrown fits my whole career because I have been making music that didn’t allow me to have a mental release,” explained the 27-year-old in her latest interview with V Magazine. “I have been making music that is palatable, marketable, and sellable, that has allowed me to be where I am. Now I am making music that allows me to express the way I feel about the world around me.”

The California native continued to unapologetically detail “These upcoming projects are going to be very different compared to everything I have done and I am excited about that. I do not care if people are not.”

Elsewhere in the cover story, the “So High” singer continued to elaborate on the kind of music she is currently creating.

“I do not consider myself a rock star. I have made pop music. I’m currently making rap, soul, and R&B music with jazz elements. But this is a representation of how I feel. When I wear black, when I wear metal, or very scantily clad outfits…it’s all a representation of how angry, liberated, and sexual I am.”

Doja Cat’s latest release “Attention” signaled the dawn of more introspection and lyricism, with less pop flair and more attention to detail.

As fans await new music from the “Won’t Bite” performer, details have already been released on concert opportunities. The risk-taker is set to hit the road on The Scarlet Tour with rising stars Ice Spice and Doechii this fall, with stops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston, Miami, Brooklyn, Chicago, Boston, and more.
