Doja Cat has teased details of her fourth studio album in a new interview with Elle, noting she will be focused more on rapping than singing this time around.The cover story with the fashion and beauty magazine charts Doja’s ascent from niche internet figure to a Number One pop artist.
While her biggest hits – such as ‘Say So’ and ‘Kiss Me More’ – have mostly focused on her singing, the article notes that the next Doja Cat album will be “predominantly rap” according to her.While she noted that she has “not started” making the album yet, she assured writer Marjon Carlos that work on the album is “coming up”.“I have been getting songs and things sent to me,” she said. “Oh fuck, I wish I could tell people.
There’s some really cool stuff that I got sent from friends. They’re all working on beats, and I’m giving them notes and they know what I want, so I’m excited.”Despite her categorisation as a rapper being contested, Doja reiterates her connection to the form during the interview. “I’ve rapped since the beginning, and I really couldn’t even sing that well to begin with — I got a lot better,” she said.“I use my voice as a tool to create these worlds, and it’s fine if people think that I can’t rap.”The article also notes that Doja Cat is interested in pursuing both acting and stand-up comedy in the coming years.Read more on nme.com
